In John Galsworthy’s last written novel, the conclusion of the final trilogy in his epic Forsyte Chronicles, Dinny Charwell is recovering steadily from her disastrous late love affair while now it is her sister, Clare, who is in trouble.

After just eighteen months of marriage, Clare has fled from her highly esteemed but sadistic husband, Gerald, in Ceylon and boarded a ship back to England. On the boat, she meets a charming but penniless expatriate named Tony Croom, who falls madly in love with her. They develop a close but platonic relationship, unaware that Clare’s husband has set detectives on her. When Clare refuses to return to her husband, he accuses her of adultery with Tony in a highly public divorce court. Though Clare wants nothing more than to divorce Gerald, she must fight the false accusation to defend her family’s honor.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A social satire of epic proportions and one that does not suffer by comparison with Thackeray’s Vanity Fair…[A] comedy of manners, convincing both in its fidelity to life and as a work of art.”

    New York Times

  • “If Galsworthy devoted himself to writing prose, David Case devoted himself to reading it out loud…Case threw himself passionately into every part, playing women so convincingly that I remember checking the audiobook box once to remind myself of the narrator’s gender…He and Galsworthy can both look back across the River Styx with a shared sense that theirs was a job well done.”

  • “This posthumous work is one of the best of the author’s novels.”

    " Enjoyed this book. Clare runs away from a bad marriage & Dinny 'locks her heart away'. The family rally round to help. Set in the year 1932 the background describes living in the Depression. "

    " Enjoyed this a lot despite not have read preceeding forsyte saga. A bit baffled by some 1930s abreviations - what is T.C.R as in T.C.R., bridge golf and the modernities? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Giacalone | 9/1/2010

    " A very satisfying ending to the series. Beautifully written, as always, and quite funny at times. Galsworthy always cuts to the heart of the matter, perfectly. "It was very restful, except that one ached a bit because it was green and beautiful. Queer, that 'beauty' ache!" "
