The story jumps ahead several years. World War I has come to an end and of the older generation, only Uncle Timothy remains. Jon has an interest in farming and his parents agree that he should go live with his sister Holly and her husband Val Dartie. June is running an art gallery - for her lame ducks, as Jolyon calls them - and quite by accident, Jon meets Fleur Forsyte, Soames' beautiful daughter. They soon realize that they are cousins of some sort but know nothing of the family feud as no one will tell them what happened all those years ago. Fleur has another admirer however, Michael Mont, though she is so caught up with Jon that she doesn't pay much attention to him. As for Jon, his father suggests that he accompany his mother on her forthcoming trip to Europe.
