The Postmistress

By: Sarah Blake

In the years preceding the United States' entrance into World War II, radio journalist Frankie Bard broadcasts from London during the air raids. Among her listeners are several residents of a small Cape Cod town. Writing in starkly descriptive prose, novelist Blake (Grange House) offers a revealing and intimate look at this moment in history, moving back and forth between small-town America and war-torn Europe and intertwining the narratives of three unique women along the way. Actress/narrator Orlagh Cassidy (The Piano Teacher) does a superb job of rendering this quietly powerful story.
