‘The House On Willow Street’ by Cathy Kelly

Danae Rahill had long since learned that a postmistress’s job in a small town had a lot more to it than the ability to speedily process pensions or organize money transfers.

She’d run Avalon Post Office for eighteen years and she saw everything. It was impossible not to. Without wishing to, the extremely private Danae found herself the holder of many of the town’s secrets.

I guess that like the majority of small shopkeepers, Danae has an almost intimate knowledge of all the local people in the area. A great source for local gossip, although not so good if you want to keep yourself to yourself, or you have something to hide! I don’t think that I would want to live somewhere quite as small and intimate as ‘Avalon’ sounds, what about you? Although I am looking forward to listening in on a few conversations, to find out what the locals are up to!

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
