"1932. After the Great War took both her beloved brother and her fiancé, Violet Speedwell has become a "surplus woman," one of a generation doomed to a life of spinsterhood after the war killed so many young men. Yet Violet cannot reconcile herself to a life spent caring for her grieving, embittered mother. After countless meals of boiled eggs and dry toast, she saves enough to move out of her mother's place and into the town of Winchester, home to one of England's grandest cathedrals. There, Violet is drawn into a society of broderers--women who embroider kneelers for the Cathedral, carrying on a centuries-long tradition of bringing comfort to worshippers. Violet finds support and community in the group, fulfillment in the work they create, and even a growing friendship with the vivacious Gilda. But when forces threaten her new independence and another war appears on the horizon, Violet must fight to put down roots in a place where women aren't expected to grow. Told in Chevalier's glorious prose, A Single Thread is a timeless story of friendship, love, and a woman crafting her own life"--… (mais)

I love when I find a book that surprises me. I knew nothing about the world of the embroiders and it was truly fascinating.
The author transported me to Winchester Cathedral 1932 and made feel a part of this world. It was a very challenging time in England as so many were still hurting from WWI and as the beginning rumblings of Nazi Germany were just beginning.
I could not put this one down and highly recommend.

I really liked the parts that took me into the world of women who embroider the choir seat cushions and kneelers and alms bags for churches, and into the skill and challenge of church-bell ringing, and into the risks and rewards of cathedral-to-cathedral holiday walks. So I liked it up until about page 150 or 175. After that, it felt like all the plot developments came from the perspective of 'hmm, we need to get some action and controversy in here.' I thought it was fine the way it was going, exploring unfamiliar places and talents and the friendships and family relationships. In the end-of-the-book credits, I was tickled to see that the character with the wonderful name of Louisa Pesel was a real person, a real church broderer. ( )

La première guerre mondiale a décimé les hommes et nombreuses sont les femmes célibataires. Parmi elles, Violet tente de se libérer du joug de sa mère, des regards compatissants ou ironiques de ses collègues et des préjugés de son chef par l’art et la beauté. Le roman d’une quête de soi, de liberté et d’indépendance, peut-être un peu facile et moins historiquement documenté que d’autres récits de l’auteur, mais une jolie balade dans une campagne ”so British”.

Tracy Chevalier writes very well and although she writes the kind of books I don't read much, this is actually my third book by her. I enjoyed it although with some caveats. It was also strange to read it so soon after reading "Ann Veronica" because it has the same plot! Woman leaves controlling family to do her own thing, finds some independence, has romance and concludes. I've been to Winchester Cathedral so that was interesting and the background to the embroidery etc. Pretty enjoyable all around. ( )

I really love the way Tracy Chevalier writes. She is one of my favorite novelists and this novel, A Single Thread ",does not disappoint. Violet faces the conventions of her day as a "surplus woman", with spunk and with embroidery for a local cathedral. Chevalier takes such a simple thing like needlepoint and makes a compelling and dramatic story from it. I quote another review that says it so well "As always, Chevalier's strengths emerge when she writes about an obscure historical artifact or topic."
Well done !! ( )
