Home Place, Sussex, 1939. The English family at war . . .

The sunlit days of childish games and familyn meals are over, as the shadows of war roll in to cloud the lives of one English family.

At Home Place, the windows are blacked out and food is becoming scarce as a new generation of Cazalets takes up the story. Louise dreams of being a great actress, Clary is an aspiring writer, while Polly, is burdened with knowledge and the need to share it.

Marking Time is the second volume in The Cazalet Chronicles. The next novel in the series is Confusion.
