In 1937, the extended Cazalet family get together for their annual six week summer holiday at the family seat, Home Place, in Sussex. Patriarch Wiiliam Cazalet, affectionately called "The Brig", travels down from London to be with the family.
It's summer 1939 and war is now seen as inevitable. The children are sent from London to the safety of the countryside. Edward and Diana Macintosh continue their affair, but realise it will be more difficult for them to see each other.
Zoe gives birth to a baby girl, and after a while learns that Rupert has been listed as missing in action. Louise comes home from drama school in trousers, leading to a major row with her mother.
At Villy and Duchy's urging, Zoe agrees to visit some of the RAF officers at a nearby hospital. There, she meets Roddy, who was badly burned in a crash.
It's now the fall of 1941. Christopher is hospitalised in a psychiatric institution and is uncommunicative. He's had a complete breakdown, and his overbearing father is unsympathetic.
Sybil's condition finally causes concerns, although Diana and an unexpected visitor have some alarming news as well.
