It’s 1922 and Fleur Forsyte is now married to Michael Mont. Fleur throws herself into the roaring 20s with the rest of London, taking life as it comes. But the marriage is haunted by the ghost of a past love affair, and however vibrant Fleur appears, those closest to her sense her unhappiness. Michael, devoted to Fleur but not blind to her faults, is determined to stand by her through anything. He also finds himself caught up in the tragic and poignant story of a young couple struggling for survival in an age of unemployment and extreme poverty.

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
