About the Book

The second interlude is on the innocent and joyful lifestyle of eight-year-old Jon Forsyte. His parents adore him. He had a perfect youth, with every want catered to. The Forsyte Saga comes to an end with this work. Fleur and Jon Forsyte, second cousins, meet and fall in love, unaware of their parents' past struggles, indiscretions, and transgressions. When Soames, Jolyon, and Irene uncover their children's romance, they prevent them from seeing one other again. Irene and Jolyon are also concerned that Fleur, like her father, will seek to take Jon completely once she has him in her grip. Regardless of her affections for Jon, Fleur has a very appropriate suitor in Michael Mont, the heir of a baronetcy, who has fallen in love with her. Fleur's family's standing would rise from nouveau riche to aristocratic upper class if they married. The title comes from Soames' reflections as he dismantles the house in which his Uncle Timothy, who died in 1920 at the age of 101 and was the last of the Forsytes' older generation, had lived as a recluse, hoarding his life like property.

About Author

John Galsworthy

English author and dramatist John Galsworthy OM (14 August 1867 – 31 January 1933) was born in England. A Modern Comedy, The Forsyte Saga (1906–1921), and End of the Chapter are notable works. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1932. Galsworthy was born in Kingston Hill, Surrey, England, in what is now known as Galsworthy House (at the time, it was known as Parkhurst). His family had a sizable home in Kingston upon Thames and was well-established and rich. In 1893, while serving as the first mate on a sailing ship docked in Adelaide, Australia, he met Joseph Conrad. The two quickly become close. From the Four Winds, a collection of short stories was John Galsworthy's first book to be published in 1897. His writings, especially The Forsyte Saga, a trilogy about the titular family and their interconnected lives, have made him more well-known in recent years. He underlines their arrogant, acquisitive attitudes and moral norms while yet being sympathetic to his characters. Galsworthy passed away on January 31, 1933, and following his passing, his ashes were dropped from an airplane over the South Downs. In addition to monuments in Highgate Cemetery and the cloisters of New College, Oxford, he was cremated at Woking.
