The tangled lives of three generations evoke a vanished world in this, the first volume of the Cazalet Chronicle.

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 played out their lives - with their relatives, their children and their servants - and the fascinating triangle of their affairs....

    " I'm reading my way through India Knight's list of cozy reads. This one was too dark in places to count as "cozy" for me, but I got interested in the characters and now I'm obsessed with reading the whole series. "

    " There are a lot of characters but ironically it is that quirky complexity that is part of its delight "

    " British upper class family and their servants during WWII. I watched the Masterpiece series on dvd and decided to try the books. The Light Years is the first in a series of four. Interesting look at everyday life during the early years of the war. "

    " So glad to find this is a series. Just order Volumes 2 and 3 from Amazon. Story of well-to-do English family just before the outbreak of WWII. "

    " Escape to the late 1930s, a golden time, if you were wealthy in England, just before the war. Interesting attitudes toward servants. Does anyone ever imagine herself as a servant when reading one of these books about class? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 1/30/2010

    " One of my favorite British family sagas...I always get in the mood for this sort of thing around Christmas...apparently, I got this one 10 years ago and have re-read the series periodically ever since. "

    " The Cazalets - a marvelous series of books about an English family in the late 1930s and 1940s. The numerous family members live through WWII each involved in their own way. I could hardly wait to get to the next book and hated for the series to end. "
