I should do a re-read of it to refresh my memory of it.

Someday I'll read her book The Spies of Shilling Lane

I see many good reviews for The Chilbury's Ladies Choir.

I have a print copy of it (I think) if you ever want to read it.

I read the graphic novel Arlo by Floor Denil (a Belgian artist) and I absolutely loved it. It's an autobiographical story about the loss of one of her best friends in high school and it's sad in the most beautiful way. Also the art is so simple and still powerful. I haven't read many graphic novels yet, but this one is my favourite by far.

Is it written in French too?

I looked up the images and I like how it's in black and white. I think it's harder to draw when something is only black/white.

regarding the story.

No it's written only in Dutch I think (otherwise I probably wouldn't be able to read it, my French is pretty bad ). The art is really beautiful and creative. Sometimes a drawing fills a whole page, sometimes it's in a cartoon-like format, very well done. I quite like sad stories, especially when there is a bit of hope in there too and I felt that in this story.

I wonder how long it took the artist to put the graphic novel together.

Same. It reminds me of She's Come Undone. It's depressing but the end has hope.
