內容簡介

「清楚地反映了戰時日常,對於當時守在家園的女性們獻上致敬。」─柯克斯評論

一九四零年的倫敦被戰爭的烏煙瘴氣所壟罩,那年二十二歲的艾咪有個夢想,那就是成為一位記者,一位專門報導戰事的女性戰地記者。

因此當報社登出徵人廣告時,艾咪毫不猶豫地抓住這個機會,也順利得到了這份工作,原本以為夢想中的生活就要開始了,沒想到實際的工作內容居然是打字工!

艾咪的老闆是個難搞的婦女,大家都稱她為柏德太太,艾咪的工作內容就是把讀者寄到報社的信念給柏德太太聽,並且幫他回信。

柏德太太有個原則,只要是聽起來不開心的信全部都丟進垃圾桶就好,但艾咪卻常常深陷在這些信件中,跟著信件一起流淚、一起憤怒。

倫敦持續承受著德軍的轟炸,艾咪無法忍受將這些信扔掉,最後她冒著丟掉工作的危險,開始祕密地回覆這些信件……

本書是作者的出道作,風格清新、讀來令人心情愉悅,收到許多媒體、讀者的好評,英國每日快報將之評為小說中的寶石。

London, 1940. Emmeline Lake and her best friend Bunty are trying to stay cheerful despite the Luftwaffe making life thoroughly annoying for everyone. Emmy dreams of becoming a Lady War Correspondent and when she spots a job advertisement in the newspaper she seizes her chance – but after a rather unfortunate misunderstanding, she finds herself typing letters for the formidable Henrietta Bird, the renowned agony aunt of Woman’s Friend magazine.

Mrs Bird is very clear: letters containing any form of Unpleasantness must go straight into the bin. Emmy finds herself dismissing problems from lovelorn, grief-stricken and morally conflicted readers in favour of those who fear their ankles are unsightly or have trouble untangling lengths of wool. But soon the thought of desperate women going unanswered becomes too much to bear and Emmy decides the only thing for it is to secretly write back . . .

Irresistibly funny and enormously moving, Dear Mrs Bird by AJ Pearce is a love letter to female friendship, Blitz spirit, the kindness of strangers and the art of letter-writing itself.
