Maid in Waiting by John Galsworthy

Book Description

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.

Books By Author John Galsworthy

Island Pharisees by John Galsworthy Island Pharisees, Paperback (July 2010)

Galsworthy's first novel was also the one he came to define as his most important, and it set the template in style and content for all his subsequent work. Galsworthy wrote the novel as a wide-ranged traveller returned home, prepared to confront the entrenched and self-serving moneyed elite.

Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy Forsyte Saga, Paperback (July 2008)

The three novels which make up The Forsyte Saga chronicle the ebbing social power of the commerical upper-middle class Forsyte family between 1886 and 1920. This, the only critical edition of Galsworthy's popular masterpiece, contains detailed notes which are vital to the saga, explaining particularly the contemporary artistic and literary allusions, and slang of the time.

Dark Flower by John Galsworthy Dark Flower, Paperback (May 2008)

Within a dozen pages, Galsworthy establishes his mastery of compelling narrative and sketches an irresistible plot. It is the kind of book one can devour in a single day. Much of Galsworthy s achievement lies in the mixture of pathos and humour which he derives from characters little able to express their feelings.

Over the River by John Galsworthy Over the River, Paperback (November 2007)

The stunning final chapter of Galsworthy's thrilling family saga
