The house at Richmond is finished at last, but Soames takes Bosinney to court for exceeding the budget. The final judgment of their case turns on 'a very fine point' in their correspondence.

The architect does not heed Young Jolyon's warning and continues to pursue Irene - with fatal consequences.

Old Jolyon effects a complete reconciliation with his son and changes his will as a result, further distancing himself from his brother James in the process. The rift will continue through into the next generation.

The old man purchases Robin Hill and spends the remaining days of his life in the company of Irene, now teaching music and 'assisting the Magdelenes of London'. This charming interlude brings Galsworthy's Book 1 of the Saga to a close.

    " Excellent book.I would read it again if I did not have so many, many other books I want to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanne | 5/10/2011

    " This is a wonderfully written book. It is a joy to read a well crafted sentence. The characters really come alive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claire | 5/5/2011

    " This book and all subsequently sequels has been on my to read list forever. I sometimes feel it is my Everest. It will give me something to do in retirement. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Flora | 4/3/2011

    " At the intersection of Dickens and Joyce, there's Galsworthy. Why he's so underrated is beyond me. His writing is sublime, his characters complex, their dilemmas intractable. The interlude, "Indian Summer of a Forsyte," is one of the most touching pieces of short fiction I've ever read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kama | 3/3/2011

    " I loved this "saga" -- several books rolled into one, all about a family in Victorian England as the 20th century approaches. The characters of Soames, Irene, Jolyon, and all the rest were very compelling. Warning: this is a very long read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 2/25/2011

    " So I'm reading "Back to the Best Books: How the Classics Can Change Your Life", and this is one of the books it recommends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ice | 2/25/2011

    " Enjoyed both TV series and the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arabella | 1/7/2011

    " Very much enjoyed this, particularly the perspective of how family skeletons have power to affect future generations. Also interesting views of the rapid changes to society and individuals in the last half of the 19th century/beginning of the 20th. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eskae | 12/21/2010

    " Amazingly interesting characters, the ups and downs of the storyline make it hard to put down. I highly recommend reading this series in order. You become very attached to the characters. "

    " As the World Turns set in turn-of-the-(last)-century Britain. Delicious. "
