The shadow of war – past, but still deeply felt, one really is inevitable – crashes on Chevalier’s astounding new novel. A moving and thoughtful examination of femininity in a turbulent 1930’s England, A Single Thread resonates with discreet power and delicate beauty. It is 1932, and the losses of the First World War, are still very much felt. Purple Speedwell, mourning for her boyfriend and his brother and considered by the company as a `surplus woman’ unlikely to get married, decides to escape his suffocating mother and strike out alone. A new life that awaits you in Winchester. Yes, it is one of the kindness of the staff, pensions and glances sideways at her naked ring finger from younger colleagues; but it is also a shining life with independence and opportunity. Purple falls with the broderers, a disparate group of women that is charged with embroidering kneelers for the Cathedral, and is soon intertwined their lives and their secrets. As the almost unthinkable threat of a second Great War appears on the horizon, Purple collects some of the secrets of his own that just might change everything… Warm, lively and well-orchestrated, A Single Thread reveals one of our best modern writers at the height of his powers.
