In the latest issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine, the June 2018 issue, there is a sweet pattern called 'Heart Scissors Pocket' by Nicoletta Farrauto of Nikyscreations that I would like to offer as a giveaway. This will just be two pages torn out from the magazine, folded and placed in an envelope. This giveaway is open to all of my followers anywhere in the world. I will draw a winner on Friday May 4th.
For readers of Lilac Girls and The Nightingale, The Chilbury Ladies' Choir unfolds the struggles, affairs, deceptions, and triumphs of a village choir during World War II.
As England becomes enmeshed in the early days of World War II and the men are away fighting, the women of Chilbury village forge an uncommon bond. They defy the Vicar’s stuffy edict to close the choir and instead “carry on singing,” resurrecting themselves as the Chilbury Ladies’ Choir. We come to know the home-front struggles of five unforgettable choir members: a timid widow devastated when her only son goes to fight; the older daughter of a local scion drawn to a mysterious artist; her younger sister pining over an impossible crush; a Jewish refugee from Czechoslovakia hiding a family secret; and a conniving midwife plotting to outrun her seedy past.
An enchanting ensemble story that shuttles from village intrigue to romance to the heartbreaking matters of life and death, Jennifer Ryan’s debut novel thrillingly illuminates the true strength of the women on the home front in a village of indomitable spirit.
Have a super weekend my friends! Thank you for stopping by.
