Holding On (by Marcia Willett)

'Holding On' is a novel by Marcia Willett, the second in the 'Chadwick' series.

Freddy's grandchildren are now grown up. Fliss must go abroad with her rather insensitive husband; Mole is in the navy; Susanna falls in love.

Other children are introduced, and adult life is well-portrayed through their eyes. Moving and realistic.

(For more information, there's a much longer review of 'Holding On' written in 2007 when I re-read it)
