To Let concludes John Galsworthy's Forsyte Saga, the first trilogy of his epic nine-volume Forsyte Chronicles, which follows the fortunes of the venerable Forsyte family, a moneyed clan whose values are ever at war with its passions. In To Let, Irene's son, Jon, and Soames' daughter, Fleur, now both nineteen years old, fall in love. But when Jon learns of the past feud between their families, he decides that he cannot marry Fleur. To drive her from his mind, he travels to America with his mother, Irene. In despair, Fleur throws herself at her long-standing admirer, Michael Mont, a fashionable baronet's son, and the two are married. Meanwhile, Soames Forsyte learns that his second wife, Annette, has been unfaithful to him, and is left desolately contemplating the sale of Robin Hill. When Timothy Forsyte, the last of the old generation, dies at the age of one hundred, the Forsyte family begins to disintegrate.… (mehr)

'To Let' finds Soames happy in his daughter, Fleur, if not with his wife Annette, and Irene and Young Jolyon are happy and at ease with themselves and their son, Jon. This comes to an end when the two cousins meet and fall in love, without knowing the history of their parents. Their romance is forbidden by their parents, but the situation is beyond control.

This novel threatens to be melodrama, dealing with star-crossed lovers and wringing hands and, yes, death. Galsworthy always prevents this, sometimes at the last minute. I did not expect to be touched by his reminiscing in the preserved, antique London home of his Uncle Timothy and "the aunts." It was lovely writing. There are more sequels, but I don't want to ruin the impression I have.

This takes place over a comparatively short period of time, and focuses on the relationship between Jon (son of Young Jolyon & Irene) and Fleur (daughter of Soames and Annette). It is, as one might imagine, doomed from the start.
Fleur is very direct and goes after what she wants. She is, after all, the apple of her father's eye and has never been denied anything. Spoilt, in other words. She embarks on the grand passion she has for Jon in a very self centered way, it is always about her. At one point Irene sums them up as Jon is a giver and Fleur a taker - which might look like a model for an ideal marriage, but I suspect it would be a disaster as well. Jon, however, seems a bit bewildered by it all, being swept along by Fleur and never really being actively involved. Until he does make a stand and that one is irrevocable.
Of the older generation, Soames is more rounded here, he clearly adores Fleur, but has not really developed any emotional intelligence in the almost 20 years since we sw him last. Irene remains unknowable and distant, known only through young Jolyon, really, we see her through his eyes. It's a period of upheaval for the world, the shadow of WW1 hangs over this, although we don't hear of there being much impact on the Forsytes of this, they are either too old or too young, as a rule. It also has the passing of the last Forsyte and the most complicated will imaginable, which, by my calculation,might just be paid out in a year or so's time!
I have thoroughly enjoyed this sequence of books and can see myself finishing the 9 book sequence at some time. ( )

This is the last book in the Forsyte sage, and the one where the family feud among the Forsytes comes to an ugly end. Both Soames and Young Jolyn now have late-in-life children: Soames a girl names Fleur and Jolyn a young son named after himself but called Jon. It is now 1920 and most of the older generation of Forsytes are now gone and the focus is on the youngest generation.

Fleur and Jolly meet cute at June Forsyte's art gallery where there is an immediate attraction. Neither knows the family history, but Fleur, who seems much more on the ball that the somewhat clueless Jon, quickly figures out some of the story and then worms the whole truth out of June. She decides to keep the truth from Jolly, sensing that his knowledge of it will ruin their relationship. Instead she presses him to marry her.

Of course, both sides of the family are appalled by this romance. Soames, however, is willing to make allowances in order for the marriage to take place. Irene, however,refuses to accept it and in an overly dramatic climax Jolyn tells Jon of all the sordid facts of Soames and Irene's marriage and the relationship is over. Fleur marries a perfectly nice young aristocrat on the rebound (and the poor boy really deserves better) and Jon heads off to America to lick his wounds.

The beautiful house that Soames originally built for Irene is now vacant and "to let." ( )

Galworthy's characters and the setting are fabulous. The entire saga was a page-turner. Old and new passions are aroused when Soames' daughter, Fleur, falls in love with Irene and Young Jolyon's son. The saga concludes in 1920 with a marriage, and with Timothy's funeral; the introduction of the new generation and the end of the old.

“The hymn was over, the prelate had begun to deliver his discourse. He told them of the dangerous times they lived in, and the awful conduct of the House of Lords in connection with divorce. They were all soldiers--he said--in the trenches under the poisonous gas of the Prince of Darkness, and must be manful. The purpose of marriage was children, not mere sinful happiness.” ( )

The last volume in the Forsyte saga.

I loved this quote:
"He didn't know about the French, but there was not much
real harm in English people except their teeth and their taste,
which was certainly deplorable." ( )
