London and Sussex, 1942. The English family in turmoil... The long, dark days of struggle provide the poignant background to the third book of the Cazalet Chronicle. As the war enters its fourth year, chaos has become a way of life. Both in the still peaceful Sussex countryside, and in air-raid-threatened London, the divided Cazalets begin to find the battle for survival echoing the confusion in their own lives...

Elizabeth Jane Howard is the author of fourteen highly acclaimed novels, most recently Love All. The Cazalet Chronicles - The Light Years, Marking Time, Confusion and Casting Off - have become established as modern classics and were adapted for a major BBC television series. In 2002 Macmillan published her autobiography, Slipstream. In that same year she was awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

This third in the superb 'Cazalet Chronicle' moves from March 1942, through the last three years of WW II, to VE Day, charting the war's social and emotional effects on a very stoic, well-bred, English country family, subtly and graphically portraying the crumbling of their world, and often perturbing discoveries about themselves. Undoubtedly a classic. (Kirkus UK)
