Read full description of the books:
This is the 7th in the Forsyte Chronicles series which I started reading with a Goodreads friend, Anita, last year. The first 6 follow the Forsyte family - who in many respects are not actually very nice people, on the whole, but it has been interesting reading. This book starts to follow a family affiliated with the Forsytes by marriage. The main female character, Dinny Charwell (it’s pronounced Cherrell), is a lovely woman - full of life and kindness. I enjoyed getting a look at the Forsytes from her point of view.
There are 2 main story lines in this book, and they both had me agog to find out what was going to happen. I was a little sad to read of most of the characters’ loss of faith in a God with whom they are able to engage in a personal relationship, but I can understand, given what they had experienced with WWI - the stress and trauma and the upset it caused to people’s mental health must have been very fresh and raw. Mental health is one of the main themes for one of the story lines as well, which is interesting, given that it must have been quite a taboo subject at that time with a great stigma attached to it.
I think I’ve currently overdosed on Galsworthy and need to take a little bit of a break before I get entrenched in number 8, The Flowering Wilderness. But I’m eager to see what happens with Dinny as we continue. I'm giving this one 3.5 stars.
