The Light Years Summary

The Light Years by Elizabeth Jane Howard

Home Place, Sussex, 1937. The English family at home . . .

For two unforgettable summers they gathered together, safe from the advancing storm clouds of war. In the heart of the Sussex countryside these were still sunlit days of childish games, lavish family meals and picnics on the beach.

Three generations of the Cazalet family. Their relatives, their children and their servants - and the fascinating triangle of their affairs . . .

The Light Years is the first volume in The Cazalet Chronicle. The next novel in the series is Marking Time.
