Have a look at pgpool-I or pgpool-II in replication mode.
Pgpool proxies SQL requests, so that requests on one server are replayed 
on the other. pgpool-I is limited to two nodes, whereas pgpool-II is not. 
Latency is important for write performance. You can do failover, you just 
need to detect by yourself when one node is dead.

There is also PITR recovery, but as it batches the transaction logs you 
may lose a bit of data (up to a configured data size / duration).
