The Lost Letter - Jillian Cantor

A good story that was easy to get lost in.  Told in two story lines, in 1989 when Kate's life is changing and she is dealing with her aging father who is losing his memory.   She is looking after his stamp collection and wonders about a fifty years old letter that was never sent.

In 1939 we meet Kristoff who is taken in by an Austrian stamp engraver and his young daughters.  With the Nazis approaching the Jewish family do not feel safe.

A unique spin  on a second world war novel.

That one looks like one I would enjoy.

I love stamps; they were one of my first introductions to history. This sounds like a similarly interesting book.
