Publisher's Summary

The sunlit days of the childish games and family meals are over, as shadows of war roll in to cloud the lives of one English family. At home Place, the windows are blacked out and food is becoming scarce. And a new generation of Cazalets takes up the story.

Critic Reviews

"Her saga offers an engrossing look at a unique period of history as experienced by a 'typical' English middle-class family whose shared adventures are engaging, sometimes heroic, and always authentic." (Library Journal)

Yet another lovely story in the Cazalet chronicles

I was transfixed reading each the 4 books and now can listen to them as well. All the stories are a good reflection on the living during the periods 1930's - 1950's. It is lovely hearing the characters growing up, in the first book some of the children are born, By the last book, Casting Off they are all grown up and married. It is worth listening to them in chronological order to get the best value.

Very disappointing

After listening to the superb Radio 4 dramatisation of the first part of the Cazalet Chronicles I could not wait to find out more about the lives of the Cazalets so downloaded this abridged version. Unfortunately the reader does not bring the story or the characters to life in the way that the dramatised version does. After reaching the halfway point I felt very little for any of the characters and had little interest in continuing with their story. I will stick to the Radio 4 version and I would advise other listeners to do the same.
