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.

Jennifer Ryan provided an interesting way to look at the town, Chilbury, during World War 2 in this novel. A small town setting, near Dover, England, mainly women, older men, and children remain due to the number of eligible men going into military. Ryan provides each of the main characters a voice either through letters or a diary entry. Each of the town's members have a story-from dealing with war torn England, secrets that townspeople have, loss of family members, and more. The local women start up a choir and find they are quite good. This tactic helps the author show multiple sides of the characters throughout the story; and the letter/diary approach allows the reader to see how the town setting is part of the story.
