    The small town of Bridgeford is in crisis. Downtown is deserted, businesses are closing, and the idea of civic pride seems old-fashioned to residents rushing through the streets to get somewhere else. Bridgeford seems to have lost its heart. But there is one thing that just might unite the community - music. The local choir, a group generally either ignored or mocked by most of Bridgeford's inhabitants, is preparing for an important contest, and to win it they need new members and a whole new sound.

    It's the start of another school year at St. Ambrose. While the children are busy in the classroom, their mothers are learning sharper lessons. Lessons in friendship. Lessons in betrayal. Lessons in the laws of community, the transience of power...and how to get invited to lunch. The Hive is a wickedly funny and brilliantly observed story about female friendship, power plays, and the joys and perils (well, mainly perils) of trying to do one's part.

    The small town of Bridgeford is in crisis. The high street is half empty, businesses are closing, and the idea of civic pride seems old-fashioned to the commuters rushing home from work. Somehow it seems to have lost its heart. But there is one thing that might just bring the town together: music. The Bridgeford Community Choir has a chance of winning the county championship. First, though, the small band of singers must find a lot of new members and a whole new sound.
