Timothy, at just over 100 years of age, is the last survivor of the 10 siblings of Superior Dosset Forsyte. In this latest volume we are introduced to the grandchildren of those Forsytes who first began the Saga.

Soames's daughter Fleur is 20 at the start of the 1920s, a bright, wilful and independent spirit who can twist her father around her little finger. There is also Jon, the offspring of Jolyon and Irene, a sensitive and intelligent, though slightly naïve, young man of the same age. When these two happen to meet, at an art gallery owned by Jolyon's daughter June, it is love at first sight despite the fulsome objections of both sets of parents.

This chance encounter is the first time that Soames has seen Irene since the Queens' funeral 19 years before and the old fever still consumes him. His second marriage has been a disappointment and again he may be a cuckold, deceived by the louche Belgian, Prosper Profond.

Jon and his mother leave for Spain where Jolyon hopes the trip will end the young man's passionate feelings, while Fleur waits at home and begins to manipulate the adults to get what she wants. Soames, an anguished man, is once more tormented and perplexed by the women in his life.

    " I'm totally addicted to the Forsyte Saga. In this book the story moves away from the Forsytes to the family that Fleur married into - the Monts & their cousins the Cherrells. Really enjoyed this book. "

    " There's a modern feel to this first book in Galsworthy's third Forsyte trilogy. We find love, of course, and also a murder trial, plans for a kidnap, a car/train chase, and here's a twist--a mad man in the attic. Very enjoyable reading. "
