The Man of Property
In "The Man of Property" Galsworthy ruthlessly strips away the gilded exterior of the Forsytes' lives, to expose the festering, rotten core of the unhappy and brutal relationships he examines within the book.
In Chancery continues the story of Soames and Irene’s marital troubles. Though 12 years have passed since the events of The Man of Property, and though they haven’t seen each other in that time, they remain married in the eyes of the law. This is beginning to bother Soames now, as he suddenly feels the need to produce an heir (preferably male) to the vast fortune he has accumulated during the course of his lifetime. Soames has it in his mind to divorce Irene, despite the distasteful gossip that will surely arise from such a move, and marry Annette, a 20-year-old French beauty whose mother operates a Soho restaurant.
To Let focuses on the youngest generation of the Forsyte family. Most of the novel deals with the blossoming love affair between Jon Forsyte, son of Irene and Young Jolyon, and Fleur Forsyte, daughter of Soames and Annette. The two teenagers accidentally meet one day at June’s art gallery, where Soames and Fleur had gone to look at pictures. Unbeknownst to them, June, Jon, and Irene were also taking in the artwork that day. Soames managed to slip out without encountering the other three, but then the end up at the same confectioner’s shop, where Fleur purposely drops her handkerchief for Jon to pick up. The kids introduce themselves and quickly discover that they have the same last name, which prompts Soames to admit that they might be distant cousins before rushing out.
The White Monkey
Following her marriage to Michael Mont, Fleur Forsyte throws herself into the Roaring 20s with the rest of London and takes life as it comes. But her marriage is haunted by the ghost of a past love affair, and however vibrant Fleur appears, those closest to her sense her unhappiness. Michael, devoted to Fleur but not blind to her faults, is determined to stand by her through anything. Will their marriage last, and just how much can Michael forgive?
The Silver Spoon
Fleur and Michael Mont entertain the glittering society characters of the day in their new, elegant, and fashionable house. As always, Fleurs 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.
The Swan Song
Jon Forsyte is back. After years living in America with his mother Irene, he is excited to be home and can't wait to show off his roots to his new bride. When Fleur Forsyte, now Fleur Mont, his first love, hears of his arrival, she doesn't know what to feel. She's married too, though, with a little boy so there's no reason why they all can't meet as friends. But feelings so strong are not easily contained. And when their passion is rekindled, no one can halt the devastating events that follow - the secret culmination of an old, old story...
