Sarah Blake’s The Postmistress (signed) Donor: S. Krishna’s Books
According to the publisher The Postmistress is about:

“Those who carry the truth sometimes bear a terrible burden…

Filled with stunning parallels to today’s worl, The Postmistress is a sweeping novel about the loss of innocence of two extraordinary women and of two countries torn apart by war.

On the eve of the United State’s entrance into World War II in 1940, Iris James, the postmistress of Franklin, a small town on Cape Code, does the unthinkable: She doesn’t deliver a letter.

In London, American radio gal Franke Bard is working with Edeward R. Murrow, reporting on the Blitz. One night in a bomb shelter, she meets a doctor from Cape Cod with a letter in his pocket, a letter Franke vows to deliver when she returns from Germany and France, where she is to record the stories of war refugees desperately trying to escape.

The residents of Franklin think the war can’t touch them bur as Franke’s radio broadcasts air, some know that the war is indeed coming. And when Franke arrives at their doorstep, the two stories collide in a way no one ould have foressen.

The Postmistress is an unforgettable tale of the secrets we must bear, or bury. It is about what happens to love during wartime, when those we cherish leave. And how every story of love or war is about looking left when we should have been looking right.”

Minimum Bid: $15
