Book Review: The Postmistress

I just got done listening to the audiobook of The Postmistress by Sarah Blake.

It was so good! It was a historical fiction mainly about World War 2 In the eyes of a female news reporter.  The storytelling was so vivid. There are several parts that made me want to cry: death, loss of love, separation of family,  mass deportation of Jews, the naivety of small town America.

It did not have a happy ending so to speak, and it left you wondering about how some of the characters turn out. Regardless, the major loose ends are wrapped up in the end.

I love how I can get free audiobook downloads from my public library.  They download right to my Android phone!  These days, it's so much easier to just listen to books than to read them - which just seems absolutely impossible.  So I can still get my book fix even with 3 kids!
