Separated from his wife Irene for some years now, Soames Forsyte has resigned himself to the fact she’s never coming back. But as he grows older and richer, he yearns for an heir. When he confronts Irene, the raw wounds of his past passion are exposed and he will do anything to claim back what is his. Then his cousin Jolyon Forsyte moves in to protect and champion Irene and the old rift in the family splinters into new jealousy, hatred and fear. But this time it runs too deeply for forgiveness…

Reviews

Praise for THE FORSYTE SAGA: 'An immortal achievement...it is, at all levels, readability itself
Financial Times
Just because they were set in a world of frock-coats and ornate drawing rooms, we should not be blind to their modern dilemmas... the satire is sharp, the dialogue, elegant and witty, and the characterisation - dazzling
Scotsman
THE FORSYTE SAGA was such a cracking good story...compulsive, as well as very modern and outrageous
Sunday Times
Still a terrific read, a satisfying, long, absorbing family story...which knocks spots off its pale imitators
Susan Hill
The books I most wish I'd written
