Blake brings history to life in her powerful portrayal of three American women caught up in WWII. Frankie Bard has gone to England to broadcast the war to the U.S., where Iris and Emma wait on Cape Cod for news of the ones they love. Orlagh Cassidy's talent shines in this excellent production. She produces a convincing English accent and nails the clipped and taciturn New England twang. When postmistress Iris makes a critical decision about the delivery of a letter in her keeping, narrator Cassidy keeps listeners engaged with the unforeseen consequences of that act. Throughout the novel Cassidy portrays each character with dead-on emotions. D.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2011 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
