I thoroughly enjoyed this continuation of the Cazalet family story. In the first of the series, the entire family was introduces and the story told from many points of view.....many of those young children. It was pleasant, yet sprawling in nature. This book starts to focus more and the story is told mainly through the three teenage girls, which is rather interesting as teens are coming to grips with Life and what it means and the world around them is at war....an additional stress & consideration for these young people.
While the three girls are most prevalent, the rest of the family members also tell their stories. Miss Millicent, the tutor, is such a wonderful character.
A wonderful group of people to follow.

The books in the Cazalet Chronicles are plagued by similar problems -- slow to get started, a lot of characters to keep up with -- but this second installment is at least aided by the fact that Howard chose to focus on fewer characters this time, making the narrative feel tighter. Lots of family drama and secrets during the early years of World War II, and it ends with enough lingering unanswered questions to ensure I'll be reading #3 as soon as possible.
