[Read by David Case]
One More River concludes the final trilogy of the series 'The Forsyte Chronicles'. This ninth book of the epic series is John Galsworthy's last written novel.
In One More River, Dinny Charwell is recovering steadily from her disastrous late love affair while now it is her sister, Clare, who is in trouble. After just eighteen months of marriage, Clare has fled from her highly esteemed but sadistic husband Gerald in Ceylon and boarded a ship back to England. On the boat, she meets a charming but penniless expatriate named Tony Croom, who falls madly in love with her. They develop a close but platonic relationship, unaware that Clare's husband has set detectives on her. When Clare refuses to return to her husband, he accuses her of adultery with Tony in a highly public divorce court. Though Clare wants nothing more than to divorce Gerald, she must fight the false accusation to defend her family's honor.

JOHN GALSWORTHY (1867-1933), English novelist and playwright, went to Oxford to study law but turned to literature after he met Joseph Conrad on a voyage. The Man of Property (1906), the first of the 'Forsyte Chronicles', established his reputation. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932.From AudioFile:
Novelist John Galsworthy completed the FORSYTE SAGA shortly before his death in 1933. This novel was the last of that epicÕs nine volumes, the culmination of a lifeÕs work. If Galsworthy devoted himself to writing prose, David Case devoted himself to reading it out loud. He recorded hundreds of books, also working as Frederick Davidson, Edward Raleigh, James Nelson, and Ian McKay. Chosen as one of this magazineÕs Golden Voices, Case threw himself passionately into every part, playing women so convincingly that I remember checking the audiobook box once to remind myself of the narratorÕs gender. His refined but nimble English voice was stilled in 2005. He and Galsworthy can both look back across the River Styx with a shared sense that theirs was a job well done.
