A character-driven story about life in England in the aftermath of World War1. Chevalier weaves a story around 'surplus' women, the paths of their lives interrupted by the war when they find all their plans derailed. With too many women and not enough men, they are forced to reinvent their purpose by creating new ways to provide for themselves emotionally and financially.
Violet Speedwell has lost the vital men in her life, her brother, and fiance to the war, her father right after. Stuck with a mean-spirited and bitter mother, she leaves home to take a job as a typist. Lonely, and bereft, she discovers an interest in the needlepoint cushion in the Winchester Cathedral and joins a sisterhood of embroiders who help her navigate her new world.
Linked by the threads of the embroidery, their lives entwine, creating new patterns that rock the existing social conforms. The bonds Violet makes give her a network of support and friendships. She learns many men's lives have been ruined by war as well. Instead of embroidery, these men have found comradeship through the ringing of the bells in the cathedrals. The church unwittingly provides succor for those who are desperate but unable to find it, showing the power of congregation and the need for people to have human contact. Perhaps the single thread of the story is the church and community that links people and their lives giving both purpose and a place to belong. While not my favorite of Chavalier's books, it was still authentic and meaningful.
