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
