Through a series of letters and journal entries, the reader learns about the lives and struggles of the women of a small village in England during WW2. Due to the lack of male chores members ,because of the war, the women decide to form the Chibury Ladies’ Choir. This is done over the objections of many as it is a radical idea for the time period. The story highlights five of the women as they adjust to the war conditions and find inner strength to cope and “carry on singing”.
I truly enjoyed this book.
