This short novella is really two stories, one past and one present, and perhaps that is why neither is explored or developed to any depth. Rachel experiences a great tragedy in her life. She meets a journalist who finds an old postcard in the desk at her parents bed and breakfast. In researching the sender and the intended recipient of the postcard, these two people connect with each other and a much older one. The story has an interesting plot, but there is hardly any development of the characters and tale drifts toward the conclusion without any real ending. ( )
