This is the third volume in the first trilogy of The Forsyte Chronicles. Originally the English edition was called Over the River, and the American edition was titled One More River In this volume, completed six months before his death in January, 1933, Mr. Galsworthy brings to a happy conclusion the story of "Dinny" Charwell, the most charming and completely realized of all Galsworthy heroines. The novel is one of strong emotions, dramatic situations, and continuous action - from the beginning in which Clare, Dinny's sister, fleeing to England from her sadist husband, falls in love and becomes hopelessly compromised with a penniless young Englishman; through the brilliant dialogue of the sensational divorce suit that follows; to the conclusion when Dinny "comes to shore on the far bank of her river" and gains contentment. The contrasting romances of the two sisters, each working out of the shadows into the light, are set against the background of modern English society that the author knew so well and portrayed with so much sympathy and penetration. John Galsworthy (1867-1933) devoted virtually his entire professional career to creating a fictional but entirely representative family of propertied Victorians- the Forsytes. He made their lives and times- loves and losses- fortunes and deaths so real that readers accused him of including as characters in his drama real individuals whom they knew. He was the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932.
Contents Good Plus. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. Faded badly especially on spine where there is an additional small spot. Matches other of Galsworthy titles put out in the same style. Part of a dj pasted to pastedown-a readers copy or to help fill a set.
This is a romantic tale full of drama. Galsworthy has a true gift with expressing emotions. His characters are beleivable. Though not as intense as his earlier work this novel is better than most ninety percent of the novels out in the world.
