    This is the second book in the victory sisters series. And yes I did read the first one. So what is the book about.It is about the Bond between sisters. It is about following your dreams.it is about thinking outside of the box . It is about betrayal.It is about forgiving and of course there is romance. And Even though I enjoyed the book and I mean a lot. The minus about this book was for me, it focused too much on the romance part and too little on the historical part.

Now the second in the Victory Sisters series by Molly Green, A SISTER'S SONG is middle sister's Suzanne's story as she fights against their staunch mother's resistance to her daughters opening themselves up to danger. It is also alluded to that Suzanne is their mother's favourite as she lives what appears to be her musical dreams through her daughter. While older sister Raine found her niche, Suzanne believes she has found hers in music. With her talent on both the piano and the violin, Suzanne dreams to study at the Royal Academy of Music in London and someday start an all-woman orchestra. Her mother, Simone, wants this for her also and even when they lost their money she paid for a private tuition so that Suzanne's dreams had the chance to become realised. When war broke out, Suzanne was still studying at school but now that she is 18, playing the violin in the village hall during an air raid somehow doesn't seem as important anymore. So when her friend in their local village's orchestra announces that she is joining ENSA - the Entertainment National Service Association - to entertain troops far and wide with music, comedy and song, she invites Suzanne along to see what it's all about. But in the early hours of the morning they were to go to London for Wendy's interview, a housefire claims the life of her dear friend. Realising that the people at ENSA would have no idea, Suzanne decides to travel to London to break the news to them herself...and ends up with an audition and job offer to travel and perform with ENSA herself! Suzanne, or Suzy as they have opted to call her, is delighted and feels that in this way she could really be helping bring cheer to the troops amidst the battle. There is just one problem - her maman (mother). Suzanne knows that there is no way her mother will allow her to give up her dreams of studying music professionally for a career. But what Suzanne didn't realise was a gift that came in the form of a letter that not only shattered her world, but gave her the strength to stand up to her mother. The women battle it out with Simone digging her heels in and resorting to emotional blackmail. And then suddenly, in a surprising turn of events, she changes her mind and signs the forms allowing Suzanne to join and travel abroad with ENSA. During the course of events leading up to this, Suzanne had met a charming young man who was standing in as an ARP warden for the usual warden who was ill. Introducing himself as James Mortimer, she later learns that he is a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy and is currently on leave. By chance she meets his mother, Beatrice, who is just simply delightful and the two women form an unlikely friendship...much to the annoyance of Simone who believes that Suzanne already has one mother and she does not need another. Personally, I would much prefer Beatrice to have been Suzy's mother as Simone is just horrible. I found her to be controlling, overbearing, selfish and manipulative. But even when Simone has reduced Suzanne to tears, the secret her mother makes her promise not to reveal to her sisters or anyone else but having already disclosed it to James, it was he who appealed to her to try and not be so hard on her mother as she doesn't know the circumstances which lead to such a shameful secret. Still Suzanne finds forgiving her mother to be difficult and leaves to travel with ENSA with barely a word goodbye. Travel destinations with ENSA are kept top secret and the troupe do not know where they are going to until they get there. The find themselves travelling by coach, train, ship and finally plane to their final destination. Suzy meets Betty and the two become firm friends, though Suzy still thinks of Wendy often and how this had been her dream originally. During the sea voyage on a naval ship, Betty takes ill and spends most of the eighteen days in her bunk while Suzy embraces the beauty from the deck. When finally they reach their destination, Suzy is singled out to sing at the Governor's residence alongside famous jazz singer Adelaide Hall. But when their pianist falls ill suddenly, a stranger steps in to play for Suzy's performance. With his blonde hair and strange lilt to his accent, Suzy is shocked to hear him use the German diminutive "Ja" when she asked him if he knew a certain piece of music. But why would a German be here? Amongst the British? When Suzy takes to the stage to perform she discovers a love for it in a way she never thought possible. While she would dearly love to perform the jazzy numbers, her forte has become to crooning melodies of ballads and focusing on the crowd before her, she likes to imagine that James is somewhere there hearing her sing for him. Although she hasn't seen him since he shipped out just prior to her leaving with ENSA, the two have corresponded frequently though mail can sometimes take months to get through, depending where they are or where he may be also. Although Suzy is thoroughly enjoying herself performing for the troops, she continues to struggle to keep the secret her mother bargained her joining ENSA with. She hates keeping secrets from her sisters but she promised her mother, although she remains at odds with her over it. Then when the ENSA troupe find themselves under attack, a decision is made to move on. However, Suzy has been given a lot to think about during her time in the Mediterranean and this last air raid attack made it that much clearer to her. She decides she needs to make her peace with her mother and to find James. But will she get the chance before it's too late? And will she ever see James again? I enjoyed A SISTER'S SONG and learning more about Suzanne in the face of such adversity that is her mother. That despite the prospects and aspirations taken from her she finds other hopes and dreams to take their place. And the unexpected love she finds in James who I simply adored along with his delightful mother. A SISTER'S SONG is more than just a story of wartime and entertainment of the troops through ENSA...it is about people. It's about love, secrets and family. And it is about the inseparable bond between sisters and their unwavering support of each other...no matter what. I look forward to reading the third book "A Sister's War" which undoubtedly follows the youngest of the Linfoot sisters, Ronnie. I would like to thank #MollyGreen, #NetGalley and #AvonBooks for an ARC of #ASistersSong in exchange for an honest review. This review appears on my blog at https://stinathebookaholic.blogspot.com/.

    I read this book during the Bank Holiday weekend VE celebrations (albeit in lockdown). The cover is just glorious and I did imagine Suzanne to be a little like the singer Katherine Jenkins in my mind. I loved the characters and the story and it was nice to see how ENSA worked entertaining the troops. Also loved the story running alongside with Simone. I found myself looking up all the songs featured too as I wasn't around at the time.

    I truly enjoyed listening to this audible. It is book 2 in this series. The first book was amazing and this book fell right in place with Suzanne, the second daughter. She wants to go on stage and do performances for the British Troops, but of course, her ma maw opposes this The mother of these girls is a real trip. Will Suzanne find her way? It ended rather abruptly but I hope that near the ending of the third book, it will all come together.

    A lovely, uplifting story set during world war two. Suzy is determined to join ENSA against her mother's wishes, she discovers a talent for singing and embarks on an adventure. There's romance, danger and family complications, an easy five stars from me. Well written, a very enjoyable read. A lovely, uplifting story set during world war two.

    I confess. I love Molly Green's novels, and there was an added poignancy to this particular one: the book blurb (above) also states: "A gripping tale of love, courage and camaraderie, perfect for fans of Nancy Revell, Donna Douglas and Vera Lynn." I started reading on the day the news announced that our beloved, and much honoured, Dame Vera Lynn passed away. So another confession: I shed a few tears as I read. I am slightly too young to remember Dame Vera during the war years, but I grew up with I confess.

I am slightly too young to remember Dame Vera during the war years, but I grew up with Mum singing along to the wireless (as we called it back then - and no that wasn't modern wi-fi - it was the radio!) Ms Green has a knack of taking her readers out of the 'today' and placing them very firmly in the period she is writing about. Partly, this is because of her excellent writing ability to create realistic characters, events and situations, but also because her research is meticulous. The wartime conditions, and Suzanne’s discovery of her strength and courage, is expertly portrayed – a young, quiet girl who has her hopes and dreams taken from her, but finds other dreams and hopes to take their place. Along with the heartache and trauma of wartime love, of course. It was also a delight to meet Suzanne’s sister Raine, from the first book in the series, A Sister’s Courage. This is not just a story about the war, and ENSA, of entertaining the troops and survival during difficult times, it is a story about people – fictional people, yes, but written so convincingly that I almost found myself wanting to search out their autobiographies. It is a story of friendships, of loyalty, of courage. It has laughter and tears, fears and bravery, and it has music and song. I defy anyone reading this not to be humming "We'll MeetAgain" or "White Cliffs Of Dover" as they read. In short, an utterly marvellous book to read! Reviewed for Discovering Diamonds

    Sisters and War Suzanne, or Suzy as her sisters Raine and Ronnie call her, has her future planned out. She wants to study at a music school and someday start an all woman orchestra.

She wants to study at a music school and someday start an all woman orchestra. Than the war happens and Suzy decides she needs to help out somehow in the war effort. This is a tough sell because her mother has paid for private lessons so she could have a musical career. She is determined and joins a swing band who are members of the ENSA – the Entertainment National Service Association – to entertain the troops. Suzy does a good job entertaining the troops, but she struggles with a family secret she learned before she left to join the ENSA. She hates keeping secrets from her sisters and she is at odds with her mother over it. Suzy also has to come to terms with her growing attraction to the handsome Naval captain she met before she left. They have been writing back and forth as much as possible with the war going on. The book is about the war and the musical group that entertained the troops, the girls and guys that made up that group and Suzy's interaction with them, her friendships, finding out she would be singing instead of playing her violin. Learning how to sing on a stage in front of a group of people with help from other's in the group with more experience. The fashions they wore, the places they went and the appreciation they received from the audience. It is about family, communications and love between each other. It is about inseparable sisters and their support for each other. I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it.

But she can’t forget the young serviceman she met by chance in her hometown and who is now somewhere serving with the Navy. Though I had not read the first novel in the series, I did not find that to be detrimental to enjoying this story. It was refreshing to see WWII from a perspective not typically written about in novels; that of the entertainment groups who worked so hard to bring what enjoyment they could to the servicemen while facing danger themselves. The characters were diverse and the author did a good job of bringing them to life. I especially loved Ronnie, a character that anyone who has had a little sister, will find endearing. I will be reading the first novel in the series and look forward to the next one.

Oh! I had an adventure sailing that big ship with the ENSA group. I love Betty,Fern,Adelaide and Suzanne. This book needs to be made into a movie. The fast paced,attention grabbing, suspense filled pages were making my heart beats so faster. I couldn’t take a breath or a break while opening page after page. Molly Green writes well. I can’t wait to read more books by her. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Avon Books UK through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

I'm looking forward to Ronnie's story.

    Probably 3.5 stars. I did like this better than the first book. Perhaps because it suddenly occurred to me to consider these books as "Young Adult" novels, since the heroines are still in their late teens. Suzanne, the second daughter, is extremely musical, playing classical music on both the piano and violin. Her mother wants her to continue her training, but women musicians aren't allowed in orchestras, so she's not convinced she should. Especially not with the war on.

    This is book 2 in a series about sisters who lived during WW2. I have not read the first book but this story could easily function as a stand alone. This story is about entertainers during the war and the incredible risks that they took to bring uplifting encouragement and entertainment to the troops. A most interesting story with vivid descriptions of what life was like at that time. I most definitely will want to read the first in the series now.

    A Sister's Song (The Victory Sisters #2) by Molly Green is the second installment of an excellent trilogy of WWII historical fiction novels, each focusing on one of three of the Linfoot sisters. The first book focused on the eldest, Raine, while this gives the middle, Suzanne or Suzy, the spotlight. I have to admit I have already read the first book, which I loved, but I do not think one has to read the previous book to understand, and fall in love with, this book. I love the way Ms. Green write A Sister's Song (The Victory Sisters #2) by Molly Green is the second installment of an excellent trilogy of WWII historical fiction novels, each focusing on one of three of the Linfoot sisters. The first book focused on the eldest, Raine, while this gives the middle, Suzanne or Suzy, the spotlight. I have to admit I have already read the first book, which I loved, but I do not think one has to read the previous book to understand, and fall in love with, this book. I love the way Ms. Green writes her novels. The smooth, easy, flowing, and heartwarming way she weaves a tale of a family in a small village on the outskirts of London is totally enthralling. The concept of Suzy joining ENSA (the entertainment group that traveled abroad and throughout home to entertain the troupes) and learning more about what their experiences were like, was so unique and interesting. Her elder sister joined, and found success, with ATA, so it was so great to see Suzy shine in her own right. I loved her testing the waters, and going for it by signing up for ENSA, standing up to her mother, leaving the nest, and venturing into uncharted territory with singing and playing the piano vs just playing the violin the village group was just so great to follow. Suzy grew so much over the course of this book, and I truly was drawn to her loyalty, strong moral compass, personality, and gumption. I enjoyed her family, the friends she met at home and in ENSA, and I also loved her sweet romance with James. I also enjoyed some of the plot twists, and surprises! Some of them definitely threw me for a loop. I truly enjoyed this novel! 5/5 stars enthusiastically I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Linfoot family and am so glad there is still more to come with the next installment. Thank you to Avon/HarperCollins for this ARC and in return I am submitting my unbiased and voluntary review and opinion. I am posting this review to my GR and Bookbub accounts immediately and will post it to my Amazon and B&N accounts upon publication.
