THE POSTMISTRESS, by Sarah Blake
In Maine, the Postmistress of a small harbor town views her almost-sacred calling as if the wheels of the universe would stop turning should she not do her job right. When the local doctor, to expiate a sin, goes to London, the full circle of the story begins. Compelling, heart-rending, evocative, the London bombing and French railway scenes will grip you until you can't breathe. Buy tissues. It's a 4.
