Dinny Cherrell is still the focus of the eighth book in the Forsyte Chronicles. Dinny has turned down eligible suitors, waiting for the love of her life. In this book, she falls head over heels with the wrong man, Wilfred Desert. He's charming, a poet, moody, and with a past that comes back to haunt him. Dinny's family doesn't approve, but Dinny is determined.

I really enjoy Galsworthy's style of giving the reader a glimpse of the problems from a societal and moral view, without banging us over the head with answers that we may or may not agree with. He presents women as creatures who should have their own views and feelings, and not as possessions.

Loved this one. ( )
