The Forsyte Chronicles, Vol. 3 End of the Chapter Audiobook

The Forsyte Chronicles, Vol. 3 End of the Chapter

Author: John Galsworthy Narrator: David Timson Release Date: February 2021

John Galsworthy's magnificent trilogy of power and passion chronicles the wealthy Forsyte family. As the disintegrating values of the Victorian era progress to World War I and the political uncertainty of the 1930s, the family's material and emotional struggles are set within the dwindling status of the affluent middle-classes. Infused with warmth, compassion and engaging characters, the complete Chronicles are divided into three volumes, containing nine books and three interludes in total. Volume 3 of this gripping family saga, End of the Chapter, shifts to the Cherrells - cousins of the Forsytes by marriage. Young Dinny Cherrell in particular cherishes their ancestral home, Condaford Grange, which represents stability in a rapidly changing world. Through his depiction of the lives and loves of this family, Galsworthy throws a brilliant spotlight on the social and political upheavals of the 1930s. End of the Chapter contains Book 1: Maid in Waiting, Book 2: Flowering Wilderness and Book 3: Over the River.

Judge and Jury - A Short Story Collection Audiobook

Judge and Jury - A Short Story Collection

Author: Bram Stoker, Charles Dickens, John Galsworthy Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Richard Mitchley Release Date: August 2018

Law is a pinnacle of human society. The phrase 'Be you ever so high the law is above you' inspires us all to believe that before it all are treated equally. But in the imposing wood panelled courts, in front of the beady eyes of wig decked judge, delivering justice tempered with mercy, our vision twists and falls prey to the mind.For Charles Dickens his story mixes deliberations of the jury with a supernatural varnish. Bram Stoker conjures up life in a house previously owned by a distinctly malevolent judge. For John Galsworthy the pursuit is rather gentler but still unsettling. A juryman must help decide whether an attempted suicide is punished..... Perhaps in our lives we all become both judge and juror. This volume comes to you from Miniature Masterpieces, a specialized imprint from Deadtree Publishing. Our range is large and growing and covers single authors, themes, and many compilations.
