Filled with stunning parallels to today''s world, "The Postmistress" is a sweeping novel about the loss of innocence of two extraordinary women--and of two countries torn apart by war.
Annotation:
Iris Franklin is the postmistress in a sleepy Massachusetts town during World War II who makes a fateful decision to not deliver an important piece of mail. Frankie Bard is a female war reporter who provides America with narrative vignettes from Europe; but when she returns to Massachusetts she reveals that her reporting hasn't told the whole story. POSTMISTRESS deals with the complex ethics of truth and lies, and how missing information can change people's lives forever.

Praise

"Sarah Blake has coaxed forth a book that hits hard and pushes buttons expertly....[T]he real strength of THE POSTMISTRESS lies in its ability to strip away readers' defenses against stories of wartime uncertainty and infuse that chaos with wrenching immediacy and terror. Ms. Blake writes powerfully about the fragility of life and about Frankie's efforts to explain how a person can be present in one instant and then in the next, gone forever....[She] knows how to deliver tragic turns of fate with maximum impact." - Janet Maslin 02/08/2010

"There's both exquisite pain and pleasure to be found in these pages, which jump from the mass devastation in Europe to the intimate heartaches of an American small town." - Karen Valby 02/12/2010
