Read in December, 2011

I was sorry to have The Postmistress end - I would have loved to follow the characters further. Such as radio journalist Frankie Bard, who met and interviewed Jewish refugees on the train to their death in Europe. Or Emma, who married a doctor who leaves for London to save lives after having lost one in Franklin, Massachusetts. And at the center, The Postmistress of Franklin, Iris, who knows everything that is going on in the town, but chooses to keep some of it secret. Sarah Blake put much research and personal feeling into these intersecting stories and I found her novel a fascinating read, beautifully written and one I still think about. I've come late to reading this book, after many other more detailed reviews, so I won't go on and on about the themes and plot. But I will say, if you're also coming across this book now, don't pass it up.
