I am a big Joanna Trollope fan and have loved all of her books, but this one is still my favorite. The characters feel like people you could actually meet, the plotline about a cathedral school boys' choir is fascinating, and as always with this author, there is a satisfying ending. Highly recommend! The PBS miniseries and CD of the music are great too.
Joanna Trollope also wrote as Carolyn Harvey - historical fiction, also very good!

I own all of Joanna Trollope's books and I love every one. They are all written in such a lovely voice and while they are all very different in tone, each is a joy to read. This was one of her first books. The character development is excellent and it may be hard to believe, but you really end up caring about a boy's choir in England! Definitely buy all of her books - you won't regret it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The book has lots of characters moving to its conclusion, and it sometimes feels so detail oriented that it seems to droan. Yet, I am very glad that I stayed with the book because it gives lots of insight into human nature. I understand that the story is also part of a PBS series, so I hope that I am able to view it in the future.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
