Notes:
It is 1932, and the losses of the First World War are still keenly felt. Violet Speedwell, mourning for both her fianc and her brother and regarded by society as a `surplus woman' unlikely to marry, resolves to escape her suffocating mother and strike out alone. A new life awaits her in Winchester. Yes, it is one of draughty boarding-houses and sidelong glances at her naked ring finger from younger colleagues; but it is also a life gleaming with independence and opportunity. Violet falls in with the broderers, a disparate group of women charged with embroidering kneelers for the Cathedral, and is soon entwined in their lives and their secrets. As the almost unthinkable threat of a second Great War appears on the horizon Violet collects a few secrets of her own that could just change everything. Warm, vivid and beautifully orchestrated, A Single Thread reveals one of our finest modern writers at the peak of her powers.

I listened to this as an audiobook on RBdigital and loved its gentle narrative and slow pace (really good if you need to get lost in something soothing). You can tell Chevalier has done a lot of research for this novel but it is handled with such a light touch and as always with Chevalier great depth of character. A wonderful calming read.
