Nestled in the heart of bookish Bloomsbury, this Luxury London hotel is the perfect place for relaxing, unwinding and escaping the city stresses. With 174 stunning rooms, a sumptuous restaurant serving fine wines and seasonal dishes, and the British Museum only moments away, you are guaranteed a romantic getaway.
Within the pages of The Postmistress it is 1940, and bombs fall nightly on London.
In the thick of the chaos is young American radio reporter Frankie Bard. She huddles close to terrified strangers in underground shelters, and later broadcasts stories about survivors in rubble-strewn streets. But for her listeners, the war is far from home.
Listening to Frankie are Iris James, a Cape Cod postmistress, and Emma Fitch, a doctor’s wife. Iris hears the winds stirring and knows that soon the letters she delivers will bear messages of hope or tragedy. Emma is desperate for news of London, where her husband is working – she counts the days until his return. But one night in London the fates of all three women entwine when Frankie finds a letter – a letter she vows to deliver . . .
A story of hope and love – The Postmistress is sure to melt your heart. Curl up with a coffee in the book snug and get lost in 1940’s London. And, as always, if you love the book you get to take it home!
