message 2: by Joana

Joana Starnes I read them ages ago too. Loved all of them but the last 3 volumes best of all. I think they were all published and nothing new surfaced. There's the first trilogy, (The Forsyte Saga: The Man of Property - In Chancery - To Let), the second (A Modern Comedy: The White Monkey - The Silver Spoon - Swan Song), and the third (End of the Chapter: Maid in Waiting - Flowering Wilderness,- One More River). I found it hearbreaking how Wilfrid and Dinny couldn't be together.


Sheila Majczan The Forsyte Saga - read those so long ago. Now wondering about them again and asking if these are new books? Or part of the continuing saga?
