Publisher Description

The Cazalet Chronicles continues with the third in the series, Confusion, set in the height of the Second World War and where chaos has become a way of life for the Cazalet family.

It's 1942 and the dark days of war seem never-ending. Scattered across the still-peaceful Sussex countryside and air-raid-threatened London, the divided Cazalets begin to find the battle for survival echoing the confusion in their own lives.

Headstrong, independent Louise surprises the whole family when she abandons her dreams of being an actress and instead makes a society marriage. Polly and Clary, now in their late teens, finally fulfil their ambition of living together in London. But the reality of the city is not quite what they imagined, and Polly is struggling to come to terms with the death of her mother and manage her grieving father. Clary, meanwhile, is painfully aware that what she lacks in beauty she makes up for in intelligence, and is the only member of the family who believes that her father might not be dead.

With cover artwork exclusively designed by artist Luke Edward Hall, this is the heartbreaking and heartwarming third instalment of Elizabeth Jane Howard's bestselling series. It is followed by the fourth book, Casting Off.

Gripping story

This third novel in the Cazalet series continued to hold my attention from first to last The girls are beautifully depicted as they mature into young women against a backdrop of profound social change that everyone is forced to take in their stride. It was a pleasure to read, I found myself looking forward to when I would get to rejoin their world, always an indication I am enjoying a book very much.

The Cazalet Chronicles

If you have not read this quartet you are in for a rare treat. The pre war years and the war years are brought to life through the experiences of the Cazalet family and their friends, relatives and servants. Novels of realism, social history and compassion for human frailty. Perfect reading.
