About the Book

Soames Forsyte's exquisite goods collection is most cherished by his wife, the mysterious Irene. However, her passion for Bosinney, a destitute architect who entirely opposes the Forsyte principles, sets off a chain of events that can only result in embarrassment and catastrophe. Gordon's opinions were greatly influenced by Robertson, who thought that missionaries were the only people who could change the settlers' lackadaisical attitudes toward sporadic church services and tepid spirituality. He rose to prominence as a supporter of the unification of the churches and social change in the West. As a result, the United Church of Canada was established in the 1920s as a reaction to the rising liberalism and secularization. Galsworthy engages the reader in a game. He is content to give us access to the thoughts of many characters, but not Irene. Therefore, we will have to make an educated assumption as to why she specifically started to despise her spouse. Soames claims to have no explanation. In a work that generally is content to toss enormous baleful of information out the back of the brougham, it is an infuriating but very purposeful withholding of information.
