really liked it

Historical novel set in 1940-41, before Pearl Harbor. 3 women main characters ...2 in small town on Cape Cod and 1 reporter running around London and Europe collecting first person accounts of Germany blitzing England, taking over countries and beginning the Holocaust. Yes, the postmistress and the reporter have letters they hold back from the other woman but what kept me coming back to the book was the naive denial...of the war coming to America, of the stories coming out of Europe, and finally the fate of the ...whoops, that would spoil it for you. Should be filmed in black and white and star Meryl Streep.
