The Chilbury Ladies' Choir
During the war, most villages and cities were devoid of men. Chilbury was no exception. While the women were more than capable of taking over most of the duties, the vicar of the village church decided he would disband the choir. When the new music tutor declared they should have an all-ladies' choir, not all were so sure it would work. What developed was so much more than a choir.
This book is about survival, community and diligence in the face of dire circumstances. Told in a series of letters and notices, reminded me of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. In my opinion it wasn't quite as good as that one but still worth the read if you like historical fiction.
