Don't let their childhood go by without knowing these great characters and places. These are the books that have deeply impacted us as children and adults; these are the books that made us fall madly in love with reading. These are the books that every home should own.
Sarah Blake - The Postmistress. Pinner writes: "Alternating between an America still cocooned in its inability to grasp the danger at hand & a Europe being torn apart by war, The Postmistress gives us 2 women who find themselves unable to deliver the news, & a 3rd woman desperately waiting for news yet afraid to hear it. Through their eyes, and the eyes of everyday people caught in history's tide, it examines how stories are told, & how the fact of war is borne even through everyday life."
