Cartes Postales from Greece by Victoria Hislop

Cartes Postales from Greece by Victoria Hislop

Illustrated with photographs, the book brings Greece to life with vivid colour, picking up on themes of love, escapism and redemption.

When Ellie starts receiving mysterious postcards signed by ‘A’, she can’t resist the images of blue skies, sparkling seas and charming squares and decides that she must go and visit these places herself.

On the morning of Ellie’s adventure, a notebook arrives, containing the story of A’s journey through Greece, with stories he’s picked up along the way. And so we set sail and join them on this trip of life-affirming discovery and travel, reminding us to live life to the full.
