This sweeping family saga now moves to the lives and loves of the Cherrells in the early 30s, cousins by marriage to the Forsytes. An old English family, their one constant in an age of change and uncertainty is their ancestral home, Condaford Grange. It is especially precious to young Elizabeth Cherrell, or 'Dinny', whose family is everything to her. And when her brother faces extradition to South America, falsely accused of murder, and her cousin is threatened by her mentally unstable husband, Dinny does everything she can to shield them from harm.

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 *
