Reading: The Postmistress
"In 1940, Iris James is the postmistress in coastal Franklin, Massachusetts. Iris knows more about the townspeople than she will ever say, and believes her job is to deliver secrets. Yet one day she does the unthinkable: slips a letter into her pocket, reads it, and doesn't deliver it.
Meanwhile, Frankie Bard broadcasts from overseas with Edward R. Murrow. Her dispatches beg listeners to pay heed as the Nazis bomb London nightly. Most of the townspeople of Franklin think the war can't touch them. But both Iris and Frankie know better...
The Postmistress is a tale of two worlds-one shattered by violence, the other willfully naïve-and of two women whose job is to deliver the news, yet who find themselves unable to do so. Through their eyes, and the eyes of everyday people caught in history's tide, it examines how stories are told, and how the fact of war is borne even through everyday life."- Amazon

Dreaming about: Santorini
"Santorini's spectacular caldera is a vestige of what was probably the biggest volcanic eruption in recorded history, believed by some to have caused the disappearance of Atlantis. The island's violent volcanic history is visible everywhere you look - in black-sand beaches, earthquake-damaged dwellings and raw cliffs of lava plunging into the sea."- Royal Caribbean
Listening to: Chef Andrew Carmellini's Lafayette Playlist
" Chef Andrew Carmellini shares a groovy, moody French playlist of the sort you might hear in his latest Noho French restaurant Lafayette. For best results, open a bottle of crisp Rosè, don your best striped sailor shirt, and put on this playlist, which will transport you to St. Tropez or thereabouts." - Town and Country
