Cartes postales from Greece by Victoria Hislop 

PAGE 36 cartes-postales

Week after week, the postcards arrive, addressed to a name Ellie does not know, with no return address, each signed with an initial A.

With their bright skies, blue seas and alluring images of Greece, these cartes postales brighten her life. After six months, to her disappointment they cea-se.  But the montage she has cre-ated on the wall of her flat has cast a spell. She must see this country for herself.

On the morning Ellie leaves for Athens, a notebook arrives. It’s pages tell the story of a man’s odyssey through Greece and a desire to live life to the full once more.

Illustrated with photographs that make this journey around Greece, already alive in the imagination, linger forever in the mind.

The library has more of Victoria Hislop’s previously published no-vels and they are all a thoroughly good read.
