Книга полностью на английском языке. Separated from his wife Irene for some years now, Soames Forsyte has resigned himself to the fact that 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!
When "The Forsyte Saga" was shown on television in 1967 it was hugely successful. The nation was gripped by the masterful visual telling of the Forsyte family's troubled story and adapted its activities to suit the next transmission. "The Forsyte Saga" comprising "The Man of Property", "In Chancery and To Let", is here produced by Wordsworth for the first time in a single volume. Initially, the narrative centres on Soames Forsyte - a successful solicitor living in London with his beautiful wife Irene. A pillar of the late Victorian upper middle class, materially wealthy, his appears to be a golden existence endowed with all the necessary possessions for a "Man of Property", but beneath this very proper exterior lies a core of unhappiness and brutal relationships. The marriage of Soames and Irene disintegrates in bitter recrimination, creating a feud within the family that will have far-reaching consequences. As the years pass, the feud between the two factions of the troubled family deepens and the shadows of past miseries return to haunt the lives of a new, younger generation. Irene's son Jon has fallen in love with Fleur, the daughter of the embittered Soames. The consequences will be tragic.
Fleur and Michael Mont entertain the glittering society characters of the day in their new, elegant, and fashionable house. As always, Fleur's father - Soames Forsyte - is constantly by the side of his daughter, spoiling and watching over her. But London after the war is a place of carefree attitudes that are alarming and baffling to old Soames. Just when he thinks he is protecting his daughter, he finds himself triggering a major social scandal.
John Galsworthy's sweeping trilogy of family fortunes began with the crumbling values of the Victorian Age, moved through the First World War, and now concludes in the 1930s, where more dramatic change is taking place. In this final volume of THE FORSYTE SAGA Galsworthy writes about the lives and loves of the Cherrell family, cousins of the Forsytes. For centuries, the Cherrell sons have left their home of Condaford Grange to serve the state as soldiers, clergymen and administrators, but the 1930s bring uncertainty in a world of rapidly altering morals and unemployment. Galsworthy's portrayal of the effect of political change on individuals shows him as a great social novelist as well as the author of one of the most gripping family sagas ever written.

John Galsworthy's magnificent, well-loved Forsyte Saga traces the changing fortunes of the wealthy Forsyte dynasty through fifty years of material triumph and emotional disaster. This first volume begins as the nineteenth century is drawing to a close, and the upper middle classes, with their property and propriety, are becoming a dying section of society. The Forsytes are blind to this fact, clinging to their conventions and "brilliant respectability". As dignified Soames Forsyte struggles to uphold the old moral code in the face of the social revolution resulting from the Great War, his wife Irene's extraordinary beauty causes even more disruption. The bitter feud between them will come to split the Forsyte family for two generations.
In this second part of John Galsworthy's splendid trilogy of love, power, money and family feuding, a new generation has arrived to divide the Forsyte clan with society scandals and conflicting passions. Set in the years following the First World War, the story moves to Soames Forsyte's daughter, Fleur. She is now married to Michael Mont, but when her old love, Jon, returns after seven years, desire is rekindled and loyalties begin to divide. Still insulated from reality by their wealth and class, the Forsytes try to resist but cannot ignore the threat of change and "the stealthy march of passion".
