Jon and his mother go to Spain. The son manages to curtail the visit after six weeks.

Meanwhile, Jolyon strengthens his relationship with his eldest daughter, June, who reveals that she sympathises with the young lovers. It is June who helps Fleur in her search for the history of the feud within the family. Prosper Profond, who continues to ingratiate himself with the Forsyte clan, inadvertently discloses the truth.

Soames, while dealing with the problems in his second marriage, must now enlighten his daughter about the problems in his first.

Although in a state of shock herself, Fleur realises that Jon may not know the whole truth and there could still be a chance to get what she wants. Ignoring the lovesick appeals of a besotted Michael Mont she resolves to marry Jon, with or without the approval of their parents.

    " The book is super thick I still do not understand how I could finish the book quickly. There's only one reason. It is good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rowena | 2/2/2014

    " The Forsyte Saga is a rich trilogy of novels about a wealthy, upper middle class London family and how their shared family peccadilloes bemire them in the same predicaments generation after generation. Thoughtful, incredibly well-detailed, with some lovely quiet moments. (ie: Indian Summer) Dry, ironic wit is interspersed here and there to make an altogether satisfying, if long, read. "

    " Oh my gosh. I was totally involved with that saga. I couldn't wait for the evening so I could read. I read it years ago and it still feels like I left a family behind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin Morgan | 1/19/2014

    " Loved this book because it explained my history, and thus explained myself to some degree, but mainly I liked the way it progressed through time from youth to old age, a journey that we all take if we are lucky enough. Also wonderful narrative style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni | 1/17/2014

    " enjoyed the history within the fictional story. Started on Book 2 of the trilogy so far it has not captured my attention "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wolvein Aether | 10/4/2013

    " Very serious book, filled with life and poetry at the same time. Life as it is, life as it can be and all aspects of it. And of course beautiful language. Those who were caught up in the destiny of a "tribe" should definitely check out six more books...) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M | 9/13/2013

    " Kind of an exquisite, savory sort of read. "

    " Lengthy, wonderful book. Just settle back and enjoy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cydney | 6/10/2012

    " Still reading it - but love it, love it, love it. Long, but never disappoints; loved every minute of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 3/28/2012

    " First read this in Ahwaz in 1974. Enjoyed it a lot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caroline | 7/5/2011

    " I tried. I really tried. But in the end I couldn't handle the combination of Victorian pathos and the smug, self-assured judgment of Jazz Age commentary on that pathos. For my money, Edith Wharton's "The Age of Innocence" explores the same questions, but much more compactly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather steff | 5/31/2011

    " long read, worth it. About the higher class of english life at the end of the 1800's. Read the book and then watch the PBS miniseries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea Carrijo | 3/2/2011

    " It was like reading a last century soap opera, but much better written. i loved it. i am debating now on renting the masterpiece theater TV series in order to see all the Forsytes in person... LOL! I had fun reading it, i think you will too. "
