Something in Disguise

Elizabeth Jane Howard

From the lauded, bestselling author of the Cazalet ChroniclesSomething in Disguise paints a candid picture of a family in crisis, from the ever witty Elizabeth Jane Howard.

May's second marriage to Colonel Herbert Brown-Lacy is turning out to be a terrible mistake. Her son, Oliver, leaves home only to drift from one affair to another; his sister Elizabeth follows him, yearning for some kind of secure relationship. While even Alice, Herbert's meek daughter, is driven into marriage to escape her father's sinister behaviour...

At once a candid depiction of a post-war family on the cusp of change and a touching love story, Something in Disguise embodies the startling truth, wit and daring that Elizabeth Jane Howard is renowned for.
