Today’s Tuesday Teaser is from The Light Years by Elizabeth Jane Howard. The novel is set between WWI and WWII and tells the saga of the Cazalet family. It is well written, as this teaser from where my bookmark lies will prove.
” Every morning when she woke up , Angela stood by the window [of the] bedroom she now had to herself. By leaning out she could just see the blue smoke that came out of the kitchen chimney of Home Place (her grandmother’s summer home) three hundred yards up the hill…” Both the descriptions and the characterization in this novel are admirably handled. I plan to use this book with its red color in my upcoming “Celebration of Color challenge…stay tuned.
