Our pick for the May book box was The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir, by Jennifer Ryan @jennifer_ryan_author
I’m a big fan of epistolary-style books, where the story is told through letters and journal entries, and The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir takes it to another level - there are so many different voices here, young and old, writing innocent “dear diary” pages and conspiring letters, and they all manage to come together beautifully.

This is a book about women doing their best to survive the worst of times, with that great British keep-calm-and-carry-on attitude we all love.

Uno de mis géneros favoritos es la ficción histórica, me encanta conocer el pasado de una forma diferente y entretenida y mas si es con personajes tan entrañables.

Come ogni fine mese, arriva sul blog la recensione per il #dominoletterario 😊 la lettura di questo mese è stata “Il coro femminile di Chilbury” di Jennifer Ryan, un romanzo storico ambientato nel Kent del 1940! In piena seconda guerra mondiale questa storia descrive la speranza e il coraggio di un gruppo di donne pronte a farsi valere di fronte alle difficoltà di un conflitto che ha influenzato anche il “fronte interno“. Un libro interessante, realista di fronte alle difficoltà del periodo ma anche estremamente dolce 😊 insomma, un libro tutto da leggere!

Book reveal time! Our choice for the May book box was The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir, by Jennifer Ryan @jennifer_ryan_author

In Chilbury, as in all English towns during WWII, all the able-bodied men have left to fight, and so the vicar decides to shut down the choir (no men = no male voices to fill out the choir). The women, however, decide that the choir is exactly what they need to keep morale up, so they find a way to keep going alone.

Told in a series of diary entries, telegrams, and letters, this is a feel-good, uplifting story about strength and community.

What did you all think of the book? Did you enjoy it?

Happy Saturday beautiful friends! We’re headed out for a Parent Day Out in an hour or so. A little Top Golf, a few cocktails and lots of shenanigans. Do you have any fun plans today?

I’ve been itching for a good historical fiction read. These three are at the tip top of my list. Have you read any of them? Any recommendations on what I should read first?

It’s like Call The Midwife meets The Sound of Music meets just trust me, you won’t put it down. Also, if you’re listening to the #audiobook but your phone’s sound is misbehaving so you visit the Genius Bar where your Genius must fix old trucks or fight crime between appointments, and he asks to check the phone’s speakers, so you bloom into the audiobook app, hit ▶️, and it’s MISS EDWINA PALTRY ranting on 2x speed TO HER SISTER CLARA in a LETTER on full volume, then the mask of professional restraint on the Genius’s face will be a memory to treasure forever... Just saying.🎵🎼🎧📚

I started this one a few nights ago, and I can already tell I’m going to like it! An epistolary novel set during WWII with a group of opinionated characters. Perfect! I got this recommendation from someone on a precious post! ❤️ What good recommendations have you gotten from fellow bookstagrammers?

The Chilbury Ladies Choir
Jennifer Ryan `The writing glows with emotional intelligence. This atmospheric debut...had me sniffing copiously' Daily Mail

IN WARTIME, SURVIVAL IS AS MUCH ABOUT FRIENDSHIP AS IT IS ABOUT COURAGE.
Kent, 1940. In the idyllic village of Chilbury change is afoot. Hearts are breaking as sons and husbands leave to fight, and when the Vicar decides to close the choir until the men return, all seems lost.
But coming together in song is just what the women of Chilbury need in these dark hours, and they are ready to sing. With a little fighting spirit and the arrival of a new musical resident, the charismatic Miss Primrose Trent, the choir is reborn.
Some see the choir as a chance to forget their troubles, others the chance to shine. Though for one villager, the choir is the perfect cover to destroy Chilbury's new-found harmony.
An uplifting and heart-warming novel perfect for fans of Helen Simonson's The Summer before the War and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Kniha Jennifer Ryanové je důmyslně konstruovaným románem s tajemstvím, zasazeným do bouřlivého údobí začátku druhé světové války, kdy na Británii útočilo německé letectvo. Autorka svůj čtivý příběh zasadila na anglický venkov, a prostřednictvím hlasů několika žen líčí střet tradičního života a velkých dějin. Román dovedně poskládala z dopisů a deníkových záznamů, které umocňují intimitu líčených příběhů, a okořenila jej vášnivými i osudovými střety postav, které musejí překonávat válečné útrapy, předsudky i sociální přehrady.

Viděla jsem kamarádku, že tuto knihu čte a tak jsem nemohla odolat a v knihovně si ji půjčila. A bylo to na úplně jiném levelu, než jsem čekala! Postavy nebyly povrchní, opravdu měly charakter a já se do nich vciťovala jak nejvíc to jde, navíc některé z nich jsme mohli poznat lépe prostřednictvím jejich deníků nebo dopisů. Některé se zase v průběhu příběhu různě vyvíjely, což bylo zajímavé. Celé vesnice je vám navíc líto, protože vy víte, že válka bude pokračovat ještě dalších pět (!) let. Já se osobně zajímám o téma druhé světové války a tato kniha ho v daném prostředí vystihla jak nejlépe mohla. Mě, jako správnému anglofilovi neskutečně imponuje prostředí anglického venkova, které se mi snad nikdy neokouká a v této knize bylo vystiženo vskutku skvěle. Knihu si určitě budu muset pořídit, poněvadž tu si přečtu ještě nejméně stokrát, než mě omrzí (a navíc ta obalka🤗).

Čekala jsem vcelku dobrou knihu, ale tohle předčilo všechna moje očekávání!

After my 4th Guernsey re-read, somehow this wasn’t at all what I thought it would be - less a cozy, warm tale; more a quirky, somewhat dark, yet very satisfying at its conclusion, WWII village story told through letters and journals and summoning up characters and memories based on what the author’s grandmother used to share. #bookstagram #bookworm #thechilburyladieschoir

My shift that started at 2 pm yesterday is finally over and I decided to have breakfast at home whilst finally beginning to read The Chilbury Ladies' Choir, which is long overdue. My mil was here while I was at work and left this shawl she's knitted for me, bless her, so I'll be warm and snug while reading. 😃
