The Chilbury Ladies' Choir Reviews

  • Dale Harcombe

    The year is 1940. The majority of men are at war, so the vicar decides to abandon the choir. Heaven forbid they should have a choir without male voices! When a newcomer suggests an all-female choir, there are cries of outrage. And some come from one or two of the women. But eventually common sense prevails and the Chilbury Ladies choir is formed. The story of this choir, and some of its members and the goings on in the village in Kent is told through letters or diary entries by various people. I ...more

    A novel that unfolds via letters and journals? Yess!! I am a sucker for this type of book so snatched it up. And what a fabulous book it was. Jennifer Ryan’s “The Chillbury’s Ladies Choir” sits right up there with my other favorites written in this style. The letters and diaries truly felt authentic.

    “There is a way of life here that I don’t believe any war can crush, that will endure long after we’re gone.”

    This story begins in an English village in the early days of World War II after the men of

    Three and a half stars for a lovely story of woman who find their inner strength during WW 2. With the men all gone to war, the ladies step up and find that they are able to do everything the men had done. In their newfound abilities, they find an ability to see themselves in totally different lights. They are not the docile meek woman anymore but acquire the wherewithal to be what was needed.

    3.5 Stars.

    A bit heavy handed and soap opera-ish at times, but enjoyable. The writing is solid and the characters, for the most part, likeable.

    It follows the lives of several English women, living in a small village in Kent, during the early months of World War II. There is choir practice, intrigue, scandal, secrets, romance, tragedy and a few bombs. No jam making though and only one child evacuee. The ending seemed a bit open, with years of the war left and some unresolved story lines, hinting a

    "The Chilbury Ladies' Choir" is an epistolary novel providing a snapshot of the experiences of a group of mostly women during World War II over the time period from March-September 1940. Able bodied men have joined the war effort and the Vicar has decided to disband the choir saying that only a mixed chorus will do! Enter Primrose Trent, music professor. Prim restructures the choral music for women's voices only, the Vicar concedes defeat, and The Chilbury Ladies' Choir is born. Music is the sal ...more

    Notice pinned to the Chillbury village hall noticeboard, Sunday 24th March, 1940: As all our male voices have gone to war, the village choir is to close following Cmdr Edmund Winthrop's funeral next Tuesday - The Vicar

    Lovely book! For the really good and relaxing read, great story, five stars! Sort of a feel-good book with both sad and happy events.... Great and colorful story buildup with each chapter written from the point of view of one of the book's main characters. Central roles for a numbe

    "Its us women in charge now," she said in more of her old cavalier style. "The Chilbury Ladies Choir will rule the world."

    After the majority of the men leave to fight in the war, the town of Chilbury is left primarily with women. The vicar, believing that the choir will not work without men, disbands it despite the womens objections. That is until a newcomer to town rallies the women together and asembles the Chilbury Ladies Choir, the first women-only choir. While not everyone is in agreement,

    3.5 stars.

    The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir is an endearing, uplifting and refreshing story about five members of The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir who are left behind as the men go off to fight in the war. It's a story of grief, deception, struggles, romance and hope as the threats from the Nazi’s reaches their village and shattering lives.

    Through journals and letters we see how the women grow and change, forge a bond and draw strength from togetherness.

    Even though I found there to be some dramatic plot l
