    Kindle Edition ´ The Postmistress ePUB Ì postmistress kindle, The Postmistress KindleThere are tons of great stories set during WWII This is not one of them It's not even much of a story it just sort of meanders and then peters out The main characters aren't much than plot devices or symbols; in fact the only people worth caring about are the mostly nameless refugees fleeing the Nazis and the Londoners living through the Blitz The sections of the book focusing on them are actually great But if you want a book about a fascinating female character during the war read Charlotte Grey If you want a book about a small town affected by

    Kindle Edition ´ The Postmistress ePUB Ì postmistress kindle, The Postmistress KindleThis was such a moving story I just wanted to close the book lie back and just think about it And even now I still do not want to clutter up this story with my own words So I will begin by adding the opening of the book as the beginning of what kept me reading through the night long into the beautiful day outside with in between a uick return to reality to answer the phone and do some work I was impatient to get back to it Honestly THERE WERE YEARS after it happened after I’d returned from the town and come back here

    Kindle Edition ´ The Postmistress ePUB Ì postmistress kindle, The Postmistress KindleThe year is 1941  Bombs are falling on London shattering buildings followed by a silence that is almost deafening  Folks huddle in underground shelters waiting for the next explosion reeking of fear despair hanging heavy in the air  All of them waiting for the All Clear siren to sound so they can venture outside to discover who and what has been destroyed with this latest blitz  Meanwhile life goes on as usual in a small town in Massachusetts  Most who live here hold firm in the belief that the war will not touch them  But it will  It doesThe absurdities of life the change in perspective as losses are sustained leaving other lives in pieces  The sense of orderline

    Kindle Edition ´ The Postmistress ePUB Ì postmistress kindle, The Postmistress KindleSnooze fest I had a difficult time finishing this book And in the end I never really got it I wanted of an emotional punch Three storylines wove together in the small Cape Cod town of Franklin in the months leading up to the US's involvement in WWII So there were 3 opportunities for catharsis I had zero Blake managed to draw things out

    Kindle Edition ´ The Postmistress ePUB Ì postmistress kindle, The Postmistress KindleI found this to be a gripping read exploring the emotions of several people mainly radio reporter Frankie Bard as they see the impact of war and struggle with their own responses to what they see The sections describing the beginning of radio reporting with Edward R Murrow and the confusion and chaos of Jewish refugees trying to escape the Nazis are powerful and riveting The title is misleading as is the premise that this story is mainly about a postmistress who chooses not to deliver the mail That does happen but neither that incident nor the postmistress are the central focus of the story at least not for me Frankie Bard on the other hand is a character not soon to be forgotten

    Kindle Edition ´ The Postmistress ePUB Ì postmistress kindle, The Postmistress KindleThis book has the potential to be great but it's not I had to force myself to finish it This book read like a rough draft With some major editing and workshopping it COULD have been good Unfortunately it was almost unreadable for me I was interested in all of the main characters but because the author jumped from different points of view so often I felt like none of the characters were actually very developed We only got a glimpse of each one Also there were many scenes that felt the same way Maybe the author tried to rush this book to the press or something but I think it would have been much better with some rewriting Also the dialogue all sounded
