Bought?? When? Where? I don’t know!

Comprising The White Monkey / The Silver Spoon / Swan Song, this second trilogy of the Forsyte Saga concentrates on Soames’ daughter Fleur and her marriage. Set in the 1920s, there’s a great contrast between the sparkling set and the old guard, with dear old Soames soldiering on bravely among high-class chancers of various kinds, and the new branches of his family. Fleur goes on making mistakes and being Fleur, and it’s just a great read, although a bit of an unwieldy one, as this volume contains the first trilogy too!

Jen – if you’re reading this, I’m ready to borrow 7, 8 & 9 at last!
