A wonderfully entertaining and well written historical fiction tale of love, loss and courage.
It is the story of Adelaide Greaves; her young son Danny, her maid and friend Nelly, who are living in Maiden’s Creek where Adelaide is the town’s Postmistress. Adelaide has created a new life, a new identity and a new future but the arrival of Caleb Hunt, a handsome American who is reeling from the horrors of the American civil war changes Adelaide’s life.
Adelaide’s past is always on her mind and Danny is a constant reminder but he is her life and when her past catches up to her in Maiden’s Creek Adelaide turns to Caleb for help.
The Postmistress is a journey into an Australian gold mining town in 1871. The descriptive dialogue in the book gives you a real sense of life and the dangers of living in the bush.
I really enjoyed getting to know Adelaide who grew to be a very strong independent woman in a man’s world. 4/5
