If you take out the French phrases that aren’t translated and the sex scenes and unbelievable meetings, there is not much here. If you want to read about WWII, there are much better nonfiction accounts.

Awesome read! I couldn’t put it down. I’m glad the Sarah Blake included (at the end) her list of sources that helped her imagine details of her story. I read this right after

The year is 1941 and war is tearing apart Europe, the Blitz is destroying England, while in America the news is about something happening somewhere else. What has it to do with them? We watch three interrelated stories with three women, one a correspondent Frankie whose voice enters the small Cape Cod town on the radio, another the town’s postmistress Iris and the third, the young doctor’s wife Emma who sees her husband idealistically go to help those suffering in London. This is an intriguing well-written tale. It is a story of war through the lens of those on the edges of action. It is the story that took many a long time for many to hear, that of what was happening to the Jews of Europe. It is what you say or don’t say and how or when that makes all the difference. Highly recommended.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. EmilyEm did an excellent review. The story about the Blitz in London was descriptive yet believable. The sex scenes in the entire book are about 10 sentences long and subtle.
