For the Cazalet family the war has brought tragedy. Rupert has been missing since Dunkirk and only his daughter Clary refuses to believe he is dead, whilst her stepmother, Zoe, devotes her energy to bringing up their daughter Juliet. Sybil has lost her battle with cancer leaving Polly bereft and trying to comfort her father, Hugh. Even Edward seems wracked with doubt over whether he should give up his mistress, Diana, who is carrying his child, and try and make a go of things with Villy.
The younger generation seems equally confused - Louise makes a hasty marriage to society painter Michael Hadleigh, whilst Polly and Clary finally convince the family they can move to London. But the girls soon discover that independence and adulthood brings heartbreak of its own.
Confusion is the third of four compelling Cazalet novels by Elizabeth Jane Howard. Dramatised by Sarah Daniels. Produced and directed by Sally Avens and Marion Nancarrow. Download and start listening now!
