Description

In John Galsworthy's last written novel, the conclusion of the final trilogy in his epic Forsyte Chronicles, Dinny Charwell is recovering steadily from her disastrous late love affair while now it is her sister, Clare, who is in trouble. After just eighteen months of marriage, Clare has fled from her highly esteemed but sadistic husband, Gerald, in Ceylon and boarded a ship back to England. On the boat, she meets a charming but penniless expatriate named Tony Croom, who falls madly in love with her. They develop a close but platonic relationship, unaware that Clare's husband has set detectives on her. When Clare refuses to return to her husband, he accuses her of adultery with Tony in a highly public divorce court. Though Clare wants nothing more than to divorce Gerald, she must fight the false accusation to defend her family's honor.

Professional reviews

"Novelist John Galsworthy completed the FORSYTE SAGA shortly before his death in 1933. This novel was the last of that epic's nine volumes, the culmination of a life's work. If Galsworthy devoted himself to writing prose, David Case devoted himself to reading it out loud. He recorded hundreds of books, also working as Frederick Davidson, Edward Raleigh, James Nelson, and Ian McKay. Chosen as one of this magazine's Golden Voices, Case threw himself passionately into every part, playing women so convincingly that I remember checking the audiobook box once to remind myself of the narrator's gender. His refined but nimble English voice was stilled in 2005. He and Galsworthy can both look back across the River Styx with a shared sense that theirs was a job well done. B.H.C.
