Imani Jade Powers narrates the bulk of The Postmistress of Paris, a tale set in 1940s Vichy France and inspired by the true story. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile contributor Sandi Henschel discuss Meg Waite Clayton’s captivating story of Nanné Gold, gutsy American heiress, who serves as a French Resistance postmistress, delivering messages to artists and writers hiding from Nazis. In contrast, Graham Halstead adopts a gritty, sorrowful voice for surrealist Jewish photographer Edouard Moss who, having escaped a Nazi work camp, dreams of reunion with his young daughter and escape from France.
