Een must voor alle liefhebbers van 'Downton Abbey', dat zijn de 'Cazalet-kronieken' van Elizabeth Jane Howard. De nadagen van het victoriaanse Engeland en de eerste onzekere jaren na het einde van de oorlog vormen de achtergrond van deze vijfdelige serie die de periode 1937-1956 omspant. In ‘Bevrijding’, het vierde deel in de serie, is de oorlog voorbij, maar voor de Cazalets is het leven er niet
