It depends on the scale, admittedly something like Forsyth Saga or Brideshead may be out of reach of many writers but there are plenty of authors writing them today, mostly mid-list authors who publish about 2 a year. Some may be a series some are just stand alones.

I would put authors like Rachel Hore and Kate Morton in the mid list group. Their books are not quite on the grand scale of Brideshead and The Forsythe saga but are good reads.

Dear M in what way is this a family saga? If you are the author, or related to the author of pure abscess there is a separate forum to enable you promote your book.

Don't know whether I've already mentioned it:

Cynthia Harrod Eagles - Dynasty series, starts with The Foundling.

A huge epic saga about the Moreland family starting in medieval England and coming up-to-date. Best to read in sequence as she deals with cousins as well as the main family line. Very good.

Many thanks, I have just started this series and they are good. I know it's not a family saga but do I recommend the Rosie project by Graeme Simison - finished it 48 hrs and its so good that I bought copies for my friends as presents!

I'd highly recommend the Spoils of Time trilogy by Penny Vincenzi - No Angel, Something Dangerous [The Spoils of Time trilogy volume 2] and Into Temptation. Lovely books, all three of them.
Also, I've enjoyed Jennifer Donnelly's The Tea Rose and its sequel The Winter Rose.
