The Chilbury Ladies' Choir

Harmony. There were many places in the debut novel titled, The Chilbury Ladies' Choir, by Jennifer Ryan where she could have veered into soap opera. Instead, this story of World War II life in an English village stayed focused on developing interesting characters and developing an engaging plot. Part of Ryan's structure involves letters from individual characters, and I found that approach fresh and interesting. There's a harmony in this novel beyond the vocal talents of the choir members in the title. Village life during the Battle of Britain drew me into the story and led me to care about every character. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Chilbury Ladies' Choir from amazon.com.
