Wanted to close the book lie back and "just think about it And even now I still do not want to clutter up this story with "think about it And even now I still do not want to clutter up this story with own words So I will begin by adding the opening of the book as the beginning of what kept me reading through the night long into the beautiful Day Outside With In Between A Uick Return To Reality outside with in between a uick return to reality answer the phone and do some work I was impatient to get back to it Honestly THERE WERE YEARS after it appened after I d returned from the town and come back La photographie au reflex numrique pour les Nuls, grand format, 6e dition here to the busy blank of the city when some comment would be tossed off about the Second World War andow it Paha Mulus dan Indah had gone some idiotic remark about clarity and purpose and I d resist the urge to stub out my cigarette and bring the dinner party to a satisfyingalt But these days so many wars are being carried on in full view of all of us and there is so much talk of pattern and intent as if a war can be conducted like music well last night I couldn t Salvage the Bones help myself What would you think of a postmistress who chose not to deliver the mail I askedIn the very last paragraph of the author s notes in the book she explains the inspiration for the book and the message we can take away For me it is a perfect blurb as well Here is the war story I never filed I began it at the end of the forties when I could see uite clearly and charged myself with getting it right getting it sharper all this while What I knew at the time is pieced togetherere with the parts I couldn t ave known but imagine to be true And the girl I was Frankie Bard radio gal lives on these pages as someone I knew onceHow Iris and Frankie come to betray everything they stand for that mail must be delivered that truth must be reported is the war story I oped to tell It is the story that lies around the edges of the photographs or at the end of the newspaper account It s about the lies we tell others to protect them and about the lies we tell ourselves in order not to acknowledge what we can t bear that we are alive for instance and eating lunch while bombs are falling and refugees are crammed into camps and the news comes toward us every The Winter's Tale hour of the day And what in the end do we do I loved the integrity of the prose the balanced portrayal of all the characters and the deeply touching story it was all centered around Absolutely RECOMMENDED This books leaves way too much to be desired Blake s book is purportedly a gripping glimpse into the lives of three women whose experiences during the second world war become interconnected Unfortunately the only thing gripping about this book was the overwhelming sense of confusion that envelopes the reader inis or Gusto ko ng Pansit Ngayon her attempt to understand why this woman s book was actually published The attempted interconnectedness between the three main characters is contrived forced and unconvincing Blake seems to spend so much time trying to to tie these disparate stories together that she fails to create characters that deserve attention or encourage the reader become the least bit invested in where the character ends up My lasting impressions of the book were 1 Why is it called The Postmistress when the postmaster is never referred to thusly 2 Why must all the men die and 3 Why does this book claim to be centered around the postmaster ander act of withholding mail when she does that but once and 34 of the way through the book Overall I felt uite angry that I wasted my time on this book There are tons of great stories set during WWII This is not one of
