'Jubilee Violin' is a collection of three short stories from the author of the 'Sing with the Choir' series. The first, 'Jubilee Violin', is a poignant story about generosity and the passing of time- a sweet song for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. 'Turning Point' and 'Dolls' House' explore what happens when things go wrong in family life.
We meet a host of characters who are mercilessly sent up by the author; all is sharply and wittily observed in a delightful mix of romance, music and humour.
'Strawberry Thief' opens with a cutting from a local newspaper telling of the discovery of a young child's skull and other small bones from at least a hundred years ago. The second story, 'Peacock and Dragon', portrays a young woman facing an age old dilemma. 'Love is Enough' is about jealousy and the dark consequences it can lead to.
Jenny Worstall has turned to crime - of the cosy variety.
The first story introduces us to Miss Rosie Peach, a young teacher keen to sort out other people's problems. In 'Best Song in the World', Celia tries to intervene between her son and daughter-in-law; she has to revisit sad events in her own marriage in order to help the young couple. The heroine in 'The Lady with the Funny Hair' has had enough - after all, even a worm will turn in the end.
The stories deal with everyday family situations and their sometimes surprising resolutions. In the first story, 'Old School', we meet an interfering mother-in-law who is due for a shock. The second story introduces us to an 'Infant Barbarian' spoilt by an indulgent parent. Justice is again dispensed in an unexpected way .
'The Funny Business of Life' is a not entirely serious murder mystery and is the second book by Jenny Worstall in the 'Sing with the Choir' series.
