Format: Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I’d heard part of this on the radio and wanted to read the story. It is brilliant, some of the family structure is a little complicated and it feels like a huge number of people are involved in the Cazalet family but everyone is involved in something.

The writing is exquisite, is varied, engaging and gives enough detail to let you build a picture in your mind but not so much you’re bored by it. I now can’t wait to get all the books in the series and read from the start.

Chapters are short and the text is broken up inside by relationship or event so you can read and keep reading or stop at a change, be distracted and restart.

I’d not read the earlier books but this really didn’t present a problem. I did not need to know about the past details to enjoy the unfurling present of the 1950s and while a little knowledge of that decade helped me appreciate mentions of the Suez crisis or Campbell’s speed records history isn’t greatly important either. Just read about the family and you’ll want to visit Home Place yourself.
