Product Description

Review

‘This book… is about growth and change – and I would cheerfully ‘prescribe’ it as required reading for any woman fed up because her husband forgot to take out the rubbish, or she’s spotted a grey hair, or she wishes she had a bit more cash… A truly heartwarming present for any woman, of any age.’ Daily Mail

About the Author

I bought the kindle version of this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have no direct connection with the Military but the wives of Chivenor and Plymouth had willingly showed us, the British Public, something of their lives, vulnerabilities and emotions in the TV programme and I guess they became “virtual friends”. This book comes across as the annual “catch-up” on news between friends and becomes very good reading by providing the inside story of the exciting events in 2012 from their perspective.
It also illustrates the extra pressures on some of the women (Louise – a submariners wife) but focuses largely on the fun and excitement the choir has brought them.
Stories of the better known ladies are included (such as Nicky Scott, Michelle, Katherine, Kelly and Kerry – I like Kerry’s comment on military rank “There are no pips on a handbag”). The very notable exception is Sam who is not included. These are the faces you subconsciously look for in any of the national performances and it is a disappointment when anyone is missing. This is particularly true of Sam because her story and wonderful voice played such a large part in gaining initial public support.
It’s also good to hear news from the ladies of other choirs but it would have been a little more helpful to include photographs of the women within the context of their stories rather than grouped at the end.
I can thoroughly recommend this book for anyone interested in the Military Wives Choir but, in hindsight, I wish I’d bought the hard copy to go alongside Gareth’s book on the subject in my bookcase.

it was secret santa, and my aunt told me that her husbands mum (who'd i'd secret santa'd (not like thAT!)) wanted it (not like that). so i got it for her (like that ) and the smile on her face stretched from one side of her face, alllll the way to the other, or near enough.

there is little pleasure as great as receiving exactly what you knew you would get when youre 80 years old. next year i'll knit her something crappy so she knows what it feels like. she's a lovely woman ( not like that)

Very true to life in the forces, my father was in the forces and I watched my mother go through similar emotions that they spoke about and the wives do support each other in good and bad times it is like any typical community except these men and women are fighting a war to protect our freedom and I do wish more people would recognise that and purchase the book to understand there emotions and support their cause.

I thought that the book well represented all the women who were in the quoir. The two who I thought ought have to be in it Sam Stevenson and Suzy Brady did not make a contrbution and were missed for it? I admire there guts for the job that they do supporting there husbands. It was nice to read some of there personal reflections and they all played a major part in bringing the Military wives quoirs to the forfront for the future. They were simply outstanding Dave Bogg

As a military wife I thought I would give this a go but after no more than a third of the way in I got bored. Too many of the stories were just normal problems that are faced everyday by military families/wives. Maybe it is because I am used to this life, it may seem a lot more interesting to someone who has never experienced the trials and tribulations of being married to the forces. I'm probably being a bit harsh but we do the easy bit and most of the stories I did read really did not warrant being published.

a must read this book took me their with them and it was a surprise read ,but a real life story and what these women had to endure along the way ,which was quite amazing as we do live in the 21st century ! but its no surprise they had a up hill struggle ! .
but the reliance of these women pulled them through the other side with pride they told us how it all panned out and what we need to do to help ! one thing is buy the book for kindle or hard back its a must read !.
