The final chapter in the saga of a once-wealthy English family tormented by the sins of their past.
Old loves threaten to jeopardize a family's future in the final installment of the Forsyte Saga. Part social satire, part melodrama, this captivating novel brings to fascinating life author John Galsworthy's preoccupations with class, gender, and morality.
Soames and Irene Forsyte have finally separated after years of turmoil. Irene is now wed to Soames's cousin Jolyon and Soames to Annette. But when the children of these marriages, second cousins unaware of the prolonged and painful family saga that has slowly unfolded across generations, uncover the dark history, their parents will stop at nothing to put an end to their love affair. Soames's daughter, Fleur, is charming and beautiful, but does she have the same tendencies toward possessiveness that drove a wedge between Soames and Irene? Or will the young aristocrat Michael Mont succeed in winning Fleur's hand, thus restoring the family to wealth and prominence? And does Soames find a morbid reflection of himself when he combs through the effects of his departed Uncle Timmy, a lifelong recluse and hoarder?
To Let brings to a fitting conclusion John Galsworthy's engrossing saga of family life and the conflicting demands of romance and social class. The Forsyte Saga is a masterpiece of British literature, as pertinent and as resonant today as it was in Edwardian England.
