A hardcover book entitled One More River by John Galsworthy. This is a 1933 First Edition.
This is the third volume in the first trilogy of The Forsyte Chronicles. Originally the English edition was called Over the River, and the American edition was titled One More River. In this volume, Mr. Galsworthy brings to a happy conclusion the story of "Dinny" Charwell, the most charming and completely realized of all Galsworthy heroines. The novel is one of strong emotions, dramatic situations, and continuous action - from the beginning in which Clare, Dinny's sister, fleeing to England from her sadist husband, falls in love and becomes hopelessly compromised with a penniless young Englishman; through the brilliant dialogue of the sensational divorce suit that follows; to the conclusion when Dinny "comes to shore on the far bank of her river" and gains contentment. The contrasting romances of the two sisters, each working out of the shadows into the light, are set against the background of modern English society that the author knew so well and portrayed with so much sympathy.
John Galsworthy (1867-1933) devoted virtually his entire professional career to creating a fictional but entirely representative family of propertied Victorians- the Forsytes. He made their lives and times - loves and losses - fortunes and deaths so real that readers accused him of including as characters in his drama real individuals whom they knew. He was the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932.
