This compelling story is the perfect answer to that request, 'I want a really good book I can get lost in!' This WWII story of three memorable women has a strong sense of place -- from the shores of Cape Cod to war-torn London. The reader will relish every word and then want to pass it along to a friend. -- Elizabeth Merritt, Titcomb's Bookshop, East Sandwich, MA
It is 1940. While war rages in Europe President Roosevelt promises he won't send American boys to fight. In the small Cape Cod town of Franklin postmistress Iris James firmly believes that her job is to deliver and keep people's secrets. Meanwhile seemingly fearless American radio gal Frankie Bard is reporting from the Blitz in London imploring listeners to pay attention to what is going on. The Postmistress is a tale of lost innocence.
