2 stories – 2 good reads

Both of the above books are ‘good reads’ — both set before or during WWII — each very different, but both are definitely good reads.

THE WINTER GARDEN:  — a story of the years lost due to a misunderstanding, the love between mothers and daughters,  the strength of the human spirit — and woven thru it all is a fairy tale.  At times, this was also a very ‘difficult read’ — but, in the end — worth it.  

THE POSTMISTRESS:  Although I enjoyed ‘The Winter Garden’ — this book was, by far, my favorite.  From opening pages and Edward R. Morrow’s reports of the Blitz of London —  to daily life in a small New England coastal village, untouched by war — this story pulled me in and held me tight.  Each day I could not wait to crawl between the pages of this book — and, now that I’ve finished it (by staying up way too late one night) — I still think about the characters and miss them.  Can’t think of a better recommendation than that.
