What does that mean, things that end in ville? coolsville? that kind of thin..."

Yes Sarah that's exactly what I meant, I didn't remember it but my mom who was only 19 in 54 remembers that.

46432 Hi Sarah, thanks for hosting this. I first read The Postmistress as a part of the First Look group at B&, unfortunately they have disbanded that forum but hopefully will come up with something similar in the future.
I loved The Postmistress and I have to admit that Harry's death effected me deeply, but I also understood the timeliness of it and the response that Iris had made perfect sense to me. I now moderate the General Fiction Book Club at B& and at the end of a featured read I often ask the members to fast forward and tell what they think the future holds for the characters in the novel. I ask that question because of the amount of emotion it took to read your novel and it's the first time I ever wondered that. I also host my own blog and The Postmistress was one of my top 20 of 2010 picks. It's one of those epic tales that just really stays with you long after the last page has been read and is a definite re-read too.
