Four strangers in the midst of difficult life transitions find friendship, purpose, and perfect pitch in in this heartfelt comic novel.
In the small English village of St. Ambrose, the members of the Bridgeford Community Choir have little in common. But when their singing coach dies unexpectedly before a big contest, the motley group must join forces -- and voices -- in pursuit of an impossible-seeming goal. Featuring an eclectic cast of characters -- including a mother suffering from empty nest syndrome, a middle-aged man who has just lost his job and his family, and a 19-year-old waitress who dreams of reality TV stardom -- ALL TOGETHER NOW is a poignant and charming novel about small town life, community, falling in love, and the big rewards of making a small change.

Today I am super excited not only to be sharing my review of All Together Now but to also be hosting a giveaway! So if you want a copy of this amazing book then look no further!

Review:

This was the first time I ever picked up a book by Gill Hornby, an author I’ve been meaning to read for ages. And I was delighted by this book. I fell instantly into the story and felt so invested in the characters, Annie and Tracey especially, that I felt part of the story and that really I should be going to choir!

I did enjoy the fact that the story was told from different points of views, but it was a bit disconcerting. Because different points of views can change mid chapter. It would have been nice to have different chapters for each character. Because while each character is distinctive and clearly different, this did flummox me the first time.

I did like that there was a song list at the end of the book, because if I’m honest I had no clue what the songs were that they were singing, except that they seemed very nice and the words were easy to make a tune up to.

And I loved the community vibe and how everyone rooted for one another and was supportive. I loved that despite some people’s reluctance they still went back to the choir. Because there is something quite addictive about belonging to a community.

From start to finish I had a happy feeling and a big smile on my face. It was cheesy and cute and funny. All Together Now managed to brighten my day and I was so sad when I finished.

This was a fun uplifting book. Perfect for the summer hols 🙂
