All Change: Cazalet Chronicles Book 5 (The Cazalet Chronicle)
All Change: Cazalet Chronicles Book 5 (The Cazalet Chronicle)
Price: 2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars So sad to have finished!, 1 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have just finished this, the last of the Cazalet saga. It is like saying goodbye to old friends. I could not stop reading even though I wanted to savour this, the final book. I haven't enjoyed any books so much for a very long time. Just devastated that there will be no more, I would have loved to follow the next generation growing up.

Another lovely tale from Trisha Ashley. Beautifully written and very touching. I feel as if I know the good folk of Sticklepond!

I wasn't sure if I could get into this book but am so glad I did. A lovely romp through love, friendship, loyalty and fun. A delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read, 24 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book fascinating, recalling my mother's tales of her war. She was a similar age to May and somehow it brought back her stories. Having spent a lifetime in teaching I found May's diary riveting. She was obviously a feisty character and her words are powerful and humorous. I was sorry to reach the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am bereft!, 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I cannot bear that I have finished the saga. I have come to know and love the Cazalets and their wider circle having read the four books in close succession. They are a modern classic, beautifully written with warmth and tenderness. Funny, insightful, poignant and utterly addictive. I cannot wait until the next one is published.

This review is from: A Winter's Tale (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this and was sorry to finish it. Having already read the other two in the series, I was only sorry I didn't read this first, though it didn't matter that much. Pure escapism!

A beautiful story with believable characters. The book is clever and funny with a warm glow like melted chocolate. It made me laugh, despite also being sad. I was very sorry to finish it.
