I really enjoyed this book which makes for a great and quick summer read. Focusing on an all-female choir created because men were at war, Jennifer Ryan's main characters come alive through their journals and correspondence. With the Second World War as a backdrop, it shows how good can come amidst the dreadfulness of combat and attack by the enemy. The story also shows how some individuals had to grow up quickly following their trials and tribulations. The author was also creative in weaving a story which takes place over a six-month period of time!
