With a good education and better luck with Elizabeth Jane Howard: Writer. Author of the four Cazalet novels who drew upon her unhappy childhood, social circle, and many love affairs. Elizabeth Jane Howard died last year at the age of 90 and this prompted me to buy 'The Cazalet Chronicles'.
Elizabeth Howard, Duchess of Norfolk (1497-1558), née Stafford, wife of Thomas Howard, 2nd Duke of Norfolk. Woodward Gentle said: "Elizabeth Jane Howard is an extraordinary writer, a highly skilled storyteller of understatement and deceptive simplicity. The novels are totally addictive with the ability to floor you with their turn of events.
