    If you could sum up In the Land of the Long White Cloud in three words, what would they be?

    I have read the Outlander and the Wilderness series and this one is right there with them.

  • The Forsyte Saga

    • UNABRIDGED (42 hrs and 38 mins)

    Story
    (96)

    The three novels that make up The Forsyte Saga chronicle the ebbing social power of the commercial upper-middle class Forsyte family through three generations, beginning in Victorian London during the 1880s and ending in the early 1920s. Galsworthy's masterly narrative examines not only their fortunes but also the wider developments within society, particularly the changing position of women.

    Kay in DC says: "A delight"
