About the Author:

Elizabeth Jane Howard was the author of fifteen highly acclaimed novels. The Cazalet Chronicles - The Light Years, Marking Time, Confusion, Casting Off and All Change - have become established as modern classics and have been adapted for a major BBC television series and for BBC Radio 4. In 2002 Macmillan published Elizabeth Jane Howard's autobiography, Slipstream. In that same year she was awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List. She died, aged ninety, at home in Suffolk on 2 January 2014.

From AudioFile:

The pleasure of hearing this lavish novel is enhanced by the promise of two more to follow. This first volume of the Cazalet Chronicle introduces three generations of a fascinating family at home in England in 1937. The peacefulness of the years between the wars sets the stage for an admirable reading by Jill Balcon. Her reading ensures that each character will be recognized. Whether it's the author's pen or the narrator's art, the listener is engrossed with the work. J.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
