The Postmistress
The Postmistress | Sarah Blake
The New York Times bestseller- "A beautifully written, thought-provoking novel." -#1 New York Times bestselling author Kathryn Stockett. In 1940, Iris James is the postmistress in coastal Franklin, Massachusetts. Iris knows more about the townspeople than she will ever say, and believes her job is to deliver secrets. Yet one day she does the unthinkable: slips a letter into her pocket, reads it, and doesn't deliver it. Meanwhile, Frankie Bard broadcasts from overseas with Edward R. Murrow. Her dispatches beg listeners to pay heed as the Nazis bomb London nightly. Most of the townspeople of Franklin think the war can't touch them. But both Iris and Frankie know better... The Postmistress is a tale of two worlds-one shattered by violence, the other willfully nave-and of two women whose job is to deliver the news, yet who find themselves unable to do so. Through their eyes, and the eyes of everyday people caught in history's tide, it examines how stories are told, and how the fact of war is borne even through everyday life. Watch a Video

My Gran spoke of Victory Gardens and aluminum drives but I never pictured it like this.
Historical fiction makes history more tangible.
It‘s so odd to think of the difference between war then and conflicts now.

#OverBookedClub

Crazeedi Every citizen was invested in the war effort. We have lost our ability to do the same, maybe because a war has been going on for way way way too many years, sadly 2d

This is the Boondock Saints definition of nowhere. Cause where‘d this book go??? Absolutely nowhere! 342 pages of life ... gone.

Which is such a shame cause the raw materials for fantastic were all there.

Though on a positive note, #ReadWithMrBook #tearjerker prompt done! Pretty sure this is not what he meant, be he‘s so nice he‘ll probably say, « it‘s your library. You can cry if you want to! »

Next up in audio.
I don‘t usually do book club books on audio but I‘m getting anxious about closing out current reads before #MiddleGradeMarch. I usually carry books over but want to focus on middle grade next month.
So I‘m switching over to audio on this one #OverbookedClub.

Today marks the halfway point of the book. Heading into the third week. I‘ve noticed some have finished and reviewed, some may have bailed.
What do you think about the question above from this week‘s reading?
#OverBookedClub

Chrissyreadit I‘m about half way- the characters have been hard for me to like and I‘m not sure why. Although in a couple lines I loved Maggie‘s family. It was odd. I think Will was trying to redeem himself and prove he was not bad- while simultaneously running away out of guilt. And being thoughtless about his own wife. 1w
Crazeedi Yes I had to finish as it was an ebook, and I absolutely loved it. So different from a ww2 book you normally read. It does take a bit to get used to her writing style. But well worth reading! 1w
Crazeedi And Will had leftover guilt from his fathers downfall, so his failure made him run, just so happened when they listened to radio each day, I think that's what came to mind. He might be redeemed if he went 1w
See All 6 Comments
Readswithcoffee I agree with @Chrissyreadit. I think his guilt was overwhelming. And since he was in a small town, he couldn‘t really hide from it. I think he was running away from his guilt and hoped to gain a sense of redemption. 1w
sblbooks I agree with everyone! Will was guilt-ridden, and was trying to make up for it somehow. 7d
kspenmoll Yes, so guilt ridden about her death & he was so sure he would make up for his father‘s “sins” in town then suddenly he was, in his eyes, like his father. He was looking for redemption. Maggie‘s love was not enough. @Crazeedi @Chrissyreadit @Readswithcoffee @sblbooks 7d

#radio #LindonBlitz #FrankieBard #Overbookedclub

This may be hard to read but it‘s worth the effort. Frankie Bard, an American radio broadcaster in London, recounts German bombing in London streets, now a way of life. “Keep calm and carry on” the new motto. She speaks to a new definition of a hero- those everyday people who weep, then pick themselves up and keep going.

I like when a book doesn't follow the normal build up to an expected outcome. The book is set in 1941, before America enters the war.Blake writes the story of the tragedy of war. Frankie, a reporter for a NYC paper broadcasts from Murrow's microphone in England. She then experiences first hand what happens when people are forced from their homes and are fleeing for their lives ahead of atrocities. Meanwhile Iris, the postmaster in a small

Crazeedi town on the coast of New England, makes sure the mail is cared for every day. Her job is part of the lifeblood of a town (before technology changes everything), she watches as the cost of war takes a toll on the people of her town, even before America has entered it. Dr Will flees to London to atone for his perceived mistake, and leave a pregnant Emma behind. Their daily letters are all that connect them across the seas. 2w
Crazeedi The course of each character in this story inevitably collide. War affects more than the soldiers in the battles. I highly recommend this book. 2w

Mehso-so

A third of this book was fascinating - female war correspondent working in London for ER Murrow captures stories of civilians in wartime. Unfortunately, that story was secondary to the premise of the book - the quandary of when compassion trumps responsibility. It‘s a valuable discussion, the writing is beautiful, but I thought the delivery was lacking.

#OverBookedClub @megnews

marleed About this pic! Some 40+ years ago I found this cigar box in the trash. It contained letters my dad (mostly) wrote to my mom when he was a young WWII soldier and she a college student. She died when I was a toddler and he must have decided it was finally time to let those letters go. 2w
marleed Well I found them when I was 12 or 13, retrieved them, hid them from everyone, even took them to my out-of-state college. I probably had them 15 years before I told him or my sisters about them. And even then, they were in Montana and the letters were safely in Kansas. Seemed fitting to own up to that with the reading of this book. I still think I did the right thing!
2w
Chrissyreadit That‘s a lovely piece of family history. Perhaps helped you to know your parents better. 2w

marleed @Chrissyreadit Oh yes, I have no memory of my mother - just stories. This box is a treasure. I wish I had the letters she had written! One letter is the response from another guy to her Dr John letter when she chose my father over him - lucky me! 2w
Megabooks That‘s such a cool story!! I‘m so glad you have those memories of your mom. 💕💕💕 I think you meant to tag @megnews though. 2w
marleed @Megabooks Oh Geez, I‘m sorry! I‘ll edit. Haha - thanks for reading my story! 2w
wanderinglynn What a neat treasure! ❤️ 2w
marleed @wanderinglynn Years later those letter created a trail allowing us to piece together bits of stories and other objects of her past. It was even of great interest to the grandchildren she would never know! ...That Dear John letter went to a soldier turned pro baseball player and manager of the NY Yankees. We found a baseball from his before famous days in my brothers possessions at my brother‘s passing. 2w
wanderinglynn Wow! What a beautiful story. You should take those letters and write a narrative to make them into a story about getting to know your mom. ❤️ 2w
marleed @wanderinglynn Lol. A sister and I have fun thinking up our piece of fiction inspired by those letters. BTW, the coaster in front is the signature my dad developed as a young soldier. I was so use to seeing it that I was 15 before I saw the soldier in his name. I had it printed on coasters for my sisters on his 100th Birthday. 2w
wanderinglynn I think it sounds like an excellent novel. Y‘all should write it! And that is so cool. What an artistic signature. 2w
megnews I‘m similarly focused on one aspect of the story. So glad you shared this story and pics. I have a stack of letters my grandfather sent my grandmother when he was a mechanic in the Air Corps during WWII. Glad you salvaged those. Such a treasure! 2w
marleed @megnews it wasn‘t until I finished the book that I realized I had my story with WWII letters. Oh very cool you have letters written by your grandfather! 2w
kspenmoll What a treasure trove! I am so happy that you have the letters, and that they have given you a sense of your mother. 1w
marleed @kspenmoll Oh thank you. I do love them. I sometimes think about my 12-13 yr-old dumpster-diving self and wonder if I could have ever known that I would treasure that stealthy act some 40+ years later! 1w

I didn't like this one as well as I'd hoped. I didn't care about most of the main characters, they were not developed enough. What do you think? Agree or disagree?
Pros
The cover is beautiful.
Frankie's time in Europe, on the train.
Cons
The rest of the book.

megnews I‘m halfway through. Reserving judgement til I finish and I‘ll post a review. I‘m enjoying the Frankie storyline and it‘s going by pretty quick for me. I do have a reservation about the book though. 2w
Coleen Agree. I was disappointed in this one. 😕 2w
MellieAntoinette I‘m about 80% in. It‘s definitely not as compelling as I‘d hoped. A shame given it started off strong. 2w

I think she is extremely old fashioned. And I think she must be socially isolated or awkward to not have a better grasp on male/female relationships. You could say it means she‘s religious but I haven‘t picked up that vibe in any other way. Your thoughts?

Readswithcoffee I am also enjoying Frankie‘s character. She is a high energy person & a go getter with a passion. Iris‘ character seems inconsistent to me.

Bailedbailed

I feel so guilty lately for bailing on so many books this year. I think I'm in a reading slump. I've noticed that when a new library hold comes in for the Alex Cross series by James Patterson, I get super excited and then incredibly bummed when I can't read the next book. But anyway, I bailed on Blake's book. #imsorry

SaturnDoo Although I liked this book, it's totally ok to bail on something you aren't enjoying. Reading slumps happen to all of us, I just recovered from one myself. Just keep reading whatever is making you happy. 🤗❤ Maybe the books you are bailing on right now, may peak your interest again when the mood is right. Good luck to you. 9mo
Sweettartlaura I have a higher number of DNFs this year already than any before. But I feel less & less guilt about it: the more I read, the better I am at discerning what works for me. Feel no guilt - life‘s too short to read boring books 😉 9mo

I‘ve had this book on my shelves for almost 9 yrs, & it finally called to me. A WWII novel which takes place in 1940 and 1941, before the U.S. enters the war. We follow a few characters in a small Cape Cod town, including the titular character, as well as an American female war correspondent reporting on the Blitz in London. Their lives intertwine in unexpected ways. Explores themes of duty and loyalty, & whether one trumps the other.

I run a community book club at the school where I teach. It's for students, parents, grand-parents, siblings, alumni, staff or anyone connected to our school. Tonight a parent gave me three file boxes of books for my classroom. Actually, one box will go to my classroom and two will go to the used bookstore. I'll get credit and buy books my students will actually read. These are ones I've pulled out to read before they go on my classroom shelves.

Sills I love this idea I'm always looking for ways to share books and inspire my students and families to read. What grade do you teach? 2y

Mehso-so

This story was a parallel view of 3 different women's experience during WWII, A reporter, the postmaster and the wife of a doctor who went to Europe to support the cause. Sadly, I found this story to be meh... While I enjoyed the reporter's part, especially her experience around the plight of refugees and victims, everything else fell flat for me. the title was based on the postmaster character, but I felt her character was the least developed.

Mdargusch Nice! 👍🏼 2y
