Synopsis

Sing As We Go is a heart-rending wartime novel from the much-loved author of The Clippie Girls, Margaret Dickinson.

Kathy Burton longs to escape the drudgery of her life as an unpaid labourer on her father's farm. With only the local church choir and the occasional dance at the village hall for amusement, she yearns for the bright lights. Spurning Morry Robinson's proposal of marriage, Kathy goes to work in the city and is captivated by the sophisticated and handsome floor manager, Tony Kendall.

Kathy has fallen deeply and irrevocably in love and, even when the country is plunged into war, she can see no obstacle to their future. But she has reckoned without the devious mind of Tony's invalid mother, Beatrice Kendall.

Determined that the possessive woman won't win, Kathy plans her wedding, but the day is ruined when Tony is called up. Feeling deserted, Kathy is forced to face yet further heartache alone. At last, she finds solace in joining a concert party entertaining service men and women. But behind the songs and the smiles, her heart is breaking . . .
