You need to readjust your time perceptions and accept this was written at time of increasing social change. However these nine novels are beautifully written and cover those sweeping changes from Victorian times to a post-war England that presaged the swinging 60s.
Many people will still remember the wonder Forsythe Saga way back in 1967, which kept most of the viewing public enthralled.
Admittedly this was a time when there was only two channels so it was a wee bit take it or leave it, but this was a wonderful story terribly well told.
The Forsythe's show how one family can dominate a whole area of London through their business practice and their social life. Their beliefs are fixed and certainly in the case of a number of the older members, rather fixed. They see themselves as guardians of the old order, some of them unable to adapt to what they see as the increasing breaking down of social mores. So they hunker down in their bunker-like homes or gentlemen's clubs, insulated from a frightening world they can no longer control.
Their children don't follow the same pathway that they did, earning a safe return of their money from a safe distance. This new generation likes to get up close, get it's hands dirty making money in ways the old people don't get.
Worse they go to war, as old Timothy says," Taking money out of the country, wasteful. Let them take care of their own". Timothy genuinely does not understand the drive of youth to go to fight the Boer War.
However it is actually based on a fundamental family feud between Soames and Young Joylon, son of Old Joylon. I won't reveal the details as it is the crux of the whole story. It is a very tender love story, but there is some violence and just so people are aware there is a marital rape.

The purchase represents amazing value. Like many of my generation, the television production from the 60's was an introduction to Galsworthy's characters. The Forstye's history through the late 19th and early 20th centuries gives a picture of the values and ambitions of a family moving from a rural backwater to the success of upper middle class London. The final book of the Saga (1930s): One More River, gives us a the story of the Charwells, a very old titled family dealing with the changes in society and their two daughters struggle for love and independence, compelling story telling. I found the characters believable and the descriptive passages wonderful.

Wonderfully written novels, once you read the first, you just have to keep going on until the 9th. Winston Graham is one of the best novel writers I have ever read. He is so descriptive and brings out every human emotion when you are following the families involved.
Cannot praise these novels enough.Was so sorry when the last one finished.
Fantastic.

Great value and I'm having a good time working my way through the entire series. Great writing and intriguing to see how human nature has changed so little while society has changed so much.

I enjoyed reading this book. I'm old enough to remember the BBC series. I found some of the parts quite amusing especailly when one of the Aunts thought Robin's hat was a cat!

Great family saga although it gets a bit heavy going in the later stories. I remember the series on TV, which I loved, so I could picture the actors and settings from that.
