Though socially disgraced by her affair, she forms a bond with the late Old Jolyon, a father of the Forsyte clan who had grown distant from the family after reconciling with one of his outcast sons. The young Jolyon had been disinherited after divorcing his wife to marry a penniless foreign governess.Now, with both his father and his beloved wife dead, the younger Jolyon finds himself drawn in sympathy to Irene, who was so dear to Old Jolyon in his final days. Their shared troubles blossom into a romance, to the horror of Soames Forsyte.

Continuing excellence

David Case continues to read the Forsyte Chronicles beautifully. They are books that I have read 'on the page' many times and (so far) there has been nothing to jar against my impressions of the characters. His understated performance in a somewhat dry, drawling voice still makes me cry at the sad parts and laugh when Galsworthy makes pointed comments.
I'd have given five stars but for the poor editing: towards the end of "Awakening" a message about turning over the audio-cassette has been left in and section of the story is repeated.
