Summary

With a song in your heart, soldier on....

Sing Them Home is a gripping wartime saga from best-selling author Pam Weaver

1943. A German aircraft crashes into a house in Worthing and causes complete devastation to the local community. Three strangers meet for the first time that day - Pip, Stella and Lillian. Lillian's little girl, Flora, has been hurt in the crash and is rushed to hospital. As she comes through her ordeal, she finds her mother and her two new ‘aunties’ by her bedside. 

The three new friends quickly bond over shared experiences; all their husbands are overseas in the fighting forces. They also have the same love of singing and soon form The Sussex Sisters, Worthing’s answer to the Andrews Sisters, to boost morale in in dance halls and canteens all over the south coast.

When D-day finally arrives, it’s the promise of a brighter future they have all been longing for. But the men who return home are altogether different from the husbands they waved off. How will they respond to their wives’ newfound fame? How will the women live alongside these distant, damaged men? With secrets, revelations and surprises on the horizon, the friends will need each other more than ever.

Such a warming story.

Absolutely loved this story. The narrator is the best. She brings each character to life. They become so real. This is a author I will be following.

Unlikely but special friendships

This was a lovely book. I found it looking for books narrated by Julie Maisey. She has a warm and engaging voice and great empathy for her women characters.

Three women meet because of an air raid in their seaside town it Britain during WWII. They are from differing backgrounds but all have husbands who are prisoners of war. They bond and form a singing trio much like the Andrews Sisters. As they perform at hospitals, air bases and canteens their friendship grows. The ending is somewhat sad, but also satisfying

The hardships suffered by civilians during this war were amazing and the resilience of the people was incredible. We can learn a lot from studying their lives and grit and toughness. I found this a delightful read, especially during a couple of days when I was tired and needed something nicely written but not overly disturbing. I'll check for other books by this author.
