ConfusioneBook - 2016
World War II casts a long shadow over the lives of a British family in the third volume of Elizabeth Jane Howard’s Cazalet Chronicles, a family saga perfect for fans of Downton Abbey In March 1942, as the world reels in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, the Cazalets are dealt another tragic blow. Eldest son Hugh’s wife, Sybil, has just died. Determined to make a future away from memories of the past, Sybil’s daughter, Polly, and Polly’s cousin Clary, leave the security of Home Place, their Sussex summer estate. But in London, their close relationship is put to the test when they fall in love with the same man. Meanwhile, nineteen-year-old Louise, middle son Edward’s eldest daughter, marries older, sought-after bachelor Michael Hadleigh, but life with the charming naval officer isn’t what the young bride expects. And Zoe, youngest son Rupert’s second wife, despairs of her MIA husband ever returning from war—even as she’s drawn into an affair with a divorced American airman and photographer. The turbulence of their own lives mirroring the unrest throughout the world, the Cazalets will be faced with a looming question when Confusion concludes on VE Day in May 1945: Will the end of war bring peace and happiness to their family?
