Once I picked up this book it was very hard for me to put down. I could not get enough of reading about the people of Chillbury. While this book is about how certain women of the village start up an all women choir (as most of the men have gone off to fight in the war) it also shows how those women all grow and become stronger.
Normally I would have been annoyed that this was written as journal entries and letters but for some reason that really enhanced the story for me. I enjoyed getting to read from multiple points of view. While certain characters did annoy me from time to time (Kitty and Miss Paltry) getting to read about their growth made me end up liking them in the end.
After reading this book I would be interested in reading more from this author.
