內容簡介


1940年肯特郡的小村莊Chilbury,因為英國捲入二次大戰的緣故,村裡的成年男子都被徵召上戰場去了。村裡的婦女違抗教區牧師關閉唱詩班的決定,自行組成了Chilbury女子合唱團。團裡有五位女性,正為著各自的生命而掙扎:

一個害羞、膽怯的寡婦,因為獨子上戰場而傷心欲絕
一個望族後代的大女兒受一個神祕的藝術家所深深吸引
她的妹妹卻因為無望的迷戀而悲慟
來自捷克的猶太難民藏著一個家族的秘密
一個狡詐的助產士正在謀劃逃離她骯髒的過往

Chilbury婦女在黑暗時刻所需要的就是聚在一起歌唱,詩班裡有些人想藉由唱聖歌來忘卻煩惱,有些人想趁此閃耀,然而有一個人想利用唱詩班作為掩護,來破壞這個剛剛才建立的和諧。

小說既振奮人心又深沉感人,故事從小村的密謀到浪漫的愛情,更涉及令人心碎的生死議題,它點亮的是女性的堅韌與深刻的友誼。

The village of Chilbury in Kent is about to ring in some changes.
This is a delightful novel of wartime gumption and village spirit that will make your heart sing out.

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.

Uplifting and profoundly moving, THE CHILBURY LADIES’ CHOIR explores how a village can endure the onslaught of war, how monumental history affects small lives and how survival is as much about friendship as it is about courage.
