The Chilbury Ladies' Choir by Jennifer Ryan is called like that because the story is centered on the choir of the town and the idea of destroying it considering that no other men are around because of the last second world war, it is in fact 1940, and so who can sing without men in a choir? Just women?
The arrival of Primrose Trent from London and the promise of keeping alive the choir will make everyone more happy.
The stylistic style the epistolary one and that's why I picked up this book.
Another reason why I picked up this book? The cover, one of the most relaxing one I have ever seen around.
If you fall in love for letters, journals, the old modality of communication, if you love history and you find fascination for the fact of the last Second World War this book is for you and I guess you will find fascinating to discover how many facts can be reported thanks to the old ink thanks to these ladies!
The stories of the town's people and of the historic moment live thanks to the various "letter-writers" of Chilbury and thanks to them we will discover joy and sufferance, also very heavy of the various people of this British village.
British books about war or other difficult moment experienced in the country are never negative or depressing because characters, in this case women portrayed always strong and able to carry on every possible problem. An example for everyone.
Many thanks to First to Read for this book!
