The Light Years is the first novel in Elizabeth Jane Howard's bestselling Cazalet Chronicles.

Home Place, Sussex, 1937. The English family at home . . .

For two unforgettable summers they gathered together, safe from the advancing storm clouds of the Second World War. In the heart of the Sussex countryside these were still sunlit days of childish games, lavish family meals and picnics on the beach.

Three generations of the Cazalet family. Their relatives, their children and their servants - and the fascinating triangle of their affairs . . .

Read the next books in the series, Marking Time, Confusion, Casting Off and All Change.
