Summary

In a terrible accident, Rachel Yoder lost her husband, her son, and her unborn child. Now, Rachel leads a reclusive life with her young daughter. Her soul is troubled, and her eye-sight has mysteriously dimmed. But the discovery of an old postcard, hidden for years, is about to change Rachel's world.

Filled with vivid scenes of Amish life, The Postcard is a heart-warming and thought-provoking examination of the powers of faith and healing. Narrator Barbara Caruso's performance brings a gentleness and warmth to this moving story.

Best-selling author Beverly Lewis has inspired millions of readers with her tender stories set in the Amish country of rural Pennsylvania.

I loved it!

This book caught my interest right from the start. Good story line, a little predictable, but very enjoyable. The narrator did a supurb job with this one.

Narrator

The breaks between chapters was disturbingly abrupt. A few seconds pause would be more settling to listener.

Wonderful Novel

The mystery and love in the story held my attention. I did enjoy the narrator, however, when she read softly at the appropriate times, I would have to increase the volume only to lower it soon after.
What a wonderful story, though! I’m looking forward to reading or hearing the sequel.

MASTERPIECE

What a fabulous story! This is one to treasure. I will definitely be listening to this again. Beverley Lewis really outdid herself with this one. And Barbara Caruso brings a richness and quality to all she narrates that can be unmatched. You won’t be disappointed.

Performance Review of the Postcard

What made the experience of listening to The Postcard the most enjoyable?

I'm a big fan of Beverly Lewis and her writings and recently decided to reread some of the older series. By reread I mean listen to while I'm at work. Ms. Caruso had a nice voice- however when there was a transition into the next chapter I felt like it was rushed and wonder if I'm missing part of the story-line. It seemed that she would be reading the end of the chapter and right in the middle announced the next chapter. I'm not sure if it's a performance issue or lack of editing because there was also an area where she seemed to have stumbled over her words. Hoping The Crossroads is better!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Postcard?

Hearing the story of Gabriel Esh. (Sp?)

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Barbara Caruso?

Beverly Lewis herself!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It took me 2 work days.
