The Light Years by Elizabeth Jane Howard
This is the kind of novel that you can actually live in. The Cazelets are so real that they begin to feel like the wealthy family nearby. This beautifully written novel discussed issues such as homosexuality, contraception and incest. I was going to write that it was ahead of its time, but it was published in 1990 so I am not sure about that! However, actually having a gay character in the book was probably unusual in 1990.
This is the third time that I have read this book and I never fail to enjoy it. It made me want to watch the excellent TV series again as well.
