The Good Book Guide Review

In Ragley-on-the-Forest village school in 1984, life goes on against the backdrop of real events – the Brighton bombing, the miners’ strike and the Band Aid single. The choir has been invited to sing in a televised carol concert in York, where one little girl’s angelic voice has dramatic consequences. Sheffield captures the ups and downs of school and village life, with a lightness of touch and tongue-in-cheek humour.
