The Forsyte Saga 9: Over the River Reviews

Praise for THE FORSYTE SAGA: 'An immortal achievement...it is, at all levels, readability itself * Financial Times *
Just because they were set in a world of frock-coats and ornate drawing rooms, we should not be blind to their modern dilemmas... the satire is sharp, the dialogue, elegant and witty, and the characterisation - dazzling * Scotsman *
THE FORSYTE SAGA was such a cracking good story...compulsive, as well as very modern and outrageous * Sunday Times *
Still a terrific read, a satisfying, long, absorbing family story...which knocks spots off its pale imitators * Susan Hill *
The books I most wish I'd written * Penny Vincenzi *
