Heartwarming

If you could sum up A Little Love Song in three words, what would they be?

Heartwarming, wartime, romance

What other book might you compare A Little Love Song to, and why?

It reminded me of 'Part of the Furniture' by Mary Wesley (another excellent book). It had the same authentic wartime feel, many of the themes were similar and the style of the books were alike.

Which character – as performed by Michelle Magorian – was your favourite?

Mad Hilda. I thought her story, which runs parallel to that of the heroine, was desperately moving. Although fictional, I am sure that the author based Hilda's story on real life events as I have heard accounts of women suffering the same fate in the early twentieth century. It makes you realise how things have changed for the better in the last one hundred years.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely.

Any additional comments?

An easy to listen to, well written story with a strong sense of the period.

Honest and heartwarming, comfort read!

If you could sum up A Little Love Song in three words, what would they be?

Love in its complexities

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Little Love Song?

Rose's first dance is a hysterical story that will live long after the book as well as her hours in the bookshop.

Which character – as performed by Michelle Magorian – was your favorite?

That's a tricky one, I appreciate Rose's spunk and Alec's sensibility and openness.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Every moment is so honest, you cringe, blush, laugh and love with the characters, you move with them.

Any additional comments?

Delicious book, to be served as comfort. It isn't unpredictable or twisty just honest and lovely!
