Margaret Dickinson - Sing As We Go

review written by Maggie Perkovic and read live on the bookshow 17th July 2015

Kathy Burton longs to escape the drudgery of her life  as an unpaid labourer
on her father's farm. Finally she decides to make the break and with her
mother's encouragement goes to live in the city with an aunt Jemima Robinson
who finds her employment in a dept. store which she thoroughly enjoys. She
falls in love with the manager Tony Kendall and he reciprocates her love,
but his mother a bitter and possessive woman manages to ruin their chances
of happiness together, and when Tony is called up as the War begins Kathy
starts her life singing with a Concert party which she loves having an excellent
singing voice although behind her performances she is breaking her heart.
Through tribulations she and Tony are reconciled though not before the war
brings suffering and heartbreak to the stalwart people of Lincolnshire.
Very good and enjoyable, quite a page turner.
Recommended. Maggie Perkovic.
