Sarah Blake: The Post Mistress

1940 and the world is living through the horror of the Second World War, but America still believes it is safe from the bloodshed. In a small Cape Cod town, Iris, the postmistress, believes her job is to keep and deliver people's secrets, pass along the news of love and sorrow that letters carry. But one day she does the unthinkable: she doesn't deliver a letter and instead slips it into her pocket.

Every night Iris and Emma, the young doctor's wife, tune into Frankie Bards radio dispatches; anguished bulletins sent from the air-raid shelters and Underground stations of London during the Blitz. One night in a bomb shelter, Frankie meets a doctor from Cape Cod with a letter in his pocket, a letter Frankie vows to deliver.

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 .
