WWII Family Sagas

Recommended Posts

Still wending my way through books written about the trials and tribulations of families dealing with wartime England, mostly dealing with the bigger cities which got targeted during the heavy bombing.  The problem I have is that with large extended families I have a hard time keeping track of the characters, especially when I'm a bit tired, and I find myself paging back to identify who I'm reading about.  Some of the writers are good and weave good plotlines then there are the others.  Quite a change from my mysteries and thrillers.

I've read some WWII family sagas that I have really liked too:

 

- all for nothing by Walter kempowski 

- her father's daughter - Marie sizun

- suite francaise - Irene nemirovsky (the second section)

- the mussolini canal - Antonio penacchi

 

Those are the ones that come to mind for me.

Have you read the Cazelet chronicles by Elizabeth Jane Howard, Momac?  If not, I think you'll love them (having an idea of your reading tastes from your posts over the years!) There are lots of charecters but I had no problem in following who was who as she creates her personalities so well.

Iff - found that I had All For Nothing in my Kindle archives, will have another look at it.

 

Thanks Viccie for the Cazelet chronicles, have not read them but will certainly see if they are on Amazon.ca for Kindle.
