The Postmistress

I have just finished reading The Postmistress by Sarah Blake.  This was a book that I found difficult to get into in the first few pages, but I am so glad that I persevered and continued reading, rather than putting it aside.

The book tells the story of three women whose lives are linked by events during the Second World War and the Blitz.  News of the wartime bombing comes over the radio and the stories of human tragedies touch the hearts of those listening.

As I got further into the book, I didn't want to put it down and that is for me, the sign of a great read.  The story is beautifully written and I would highly recommend this book.
