The Chilbury Ladies Choir
The Chilbury Ladies' Choir: A Novel - Jennifer Ryan
I listened to this on audio which carried a deep accent. I liked that these women at first thought they couldn’t carry on because their men were off fighting in the war (WWII) but later decided, heck yeah…. we can do it! A thought erupts about forming a choir but the women contemplate how they can do that without the men? A choir with just women? What shall they sing without the men’s voices? I had to laugh as they pondered this idea.
 
The novel is told using a variety of transcripts from journals to letters to newspapers clippings. These women were determined to carry on in life without their men. I liked how the women bicker, how they encourage one another and how they still keep their separate opinions. There was Mrs. Tilling who kept her nose in everything and I liked her. This was an interesting and fun novel to listen to.

The Chilbury Ladies' Choir: A Novel - Jennifer Ryan

I received this book for free through Bookstr’s (formerly The Reading Room) giveaways.

 

I really liked this book. It is told entirely in letters and journal entries which I absolutely love. Plus it even has a map of the town which was super helpful to have.

 

I loved how the book showcased the women and how their lives were impacted by the war. It told such a range of stories, from the good times to the really bad times, without ever losing its optimism.

 

Overall, it was a book with a lot of heart.
