A hilarious and heart-warming new novel about a small-town singing group, by Sunday Times bestseller Gill Hornby
The small town of Bridgeford is in crisis. The high street is half empty, businesses are closing and the idea of civic pride seems old-fashioned to the commuters rushing home from work. Somehow, it seems to have lost its heart.
But there is one thing that might just bring the town together: music. The Bridgeford Community Choir has a chance of winning the county championship. First though, the small band of singers must find a lot of new members and a whole new sound. Enter Tracey - one of life's soloists, and hiding a secret past; Bennett - a church choir refugee, baffled by the modern world. And Jazzy - who sees her voice as her passport straight out of town to a future of fame and fortune. Can they really fit in with dependable old regulars like Annie? Can they learn to work together, save their singing group and maybe even their community?
All Together Now is a funny, sharply observed and moving novel about the joys of singing, about living in harmony, about falling in love... and about the importance of finding your own, true voice.
This was an enjoyable read. I took the book on holiday for me read so it helped to pass time on the sunbed!!!
It was an idea read for holiday, it was a fairly easy plot to follow, that flowed well. There were a few bits that struggled to keep interest but I kept reading.
The book has a great group of characters that were very likably. If you are looking for a light hearted fun summer read then this is the book for you.
