"Vivid and compulsively readable." (Sunday Telegraph)
When I finished reading this first book I had to go on line to buy the next and the next! I was thrilled to find them in Audible. This first book sets the family and the time before the war, characters are born and by the later books they are adults. Elizabeth Jane Howard has certainly studied characters well, and she puts them across! I think these books help to show how life has changed now, then there were staff, Nannies, Cook, housekeeper, maids, chauffeurs. The lady of the house had no hard work and she had to know how to speak to her staff so the house ran smoothly. Highly recommend these chronicles.
