Often incorrectly called The Forsyte Saga - the nine novel sequence properly known as The Forstye Chronicles contains three trilogies- of which the first trilogy is The Forsyte Saga (The Man of Property - In Chancery- To Let). The second trilogy- A Modern Comedy (The White Monkey- The Silver Spoon- Swan Song) is followed by the third and concluding trilogy- End of the Chapter (Maid in Waiting- Flowering Wilderness- One More River).
Michael Mont is succeeding in his public life in Parliament, but holds grave doubts about his private life and his wife, Fleur. Fleur's original love, Jon Forsyte, her cousin and the son of her father's ex-wife, returns to England where a meeting is inevitable. Fleur's undying love for Jon is disclosed. Other members of the Forsyte family are included in this imminently readable saga.

I wrote a real passionate review for this excellent book, the review concentrated on the hurts and pains passion brings to our lives. It was a really, really passionate review. I have accidentally deleted it, as if proving, that passion is something to be cautious about; something to stay away from to save one's heart and soul, to keep one further away from the dangers of fire of life.
Sometimes it is not possible though.
If you have read thus far in the story of the life of Forsyte family, this book is a must.
Well, I am through with the second trilogy about Forsyte! What a great writing; what deep issues are discussed! The influence of politics and society onto the perception of life, love and property by people. Loads of feelings, psychological insights and simply LIFE as it was in 1920-es and is now, almost a 100 years later.
