If you’d like a review copy of The Postcard in exchange for a short honest review (I think people think they need to write an essay but a two line review can be helpful for readers when deciding) please let me know! Just send me a mail, tweet me, or pop your address in the comments below and I’ll get back to you. The book is kindle format only at the moment but I will be looking at getting it into all the various e-formats in the future … till then I can send the book directly to your kindle app/device as a gift.

“I rarely read such a beautiful writing style as this.” Isabel Homfeld, Dreaming with Open Eyes reviews.
“A beautifully written and truly moving book, that had my eyes well up on several occasions. The writing is tender and emotive, the story sweet and whimsical, and the characters loveable …” Paris Baker, Paris Baker’s Book Nook.
When Ivy Everton, a children’s book illustrator, moves to Cornwall to start a new life with her husband Stuart, she’s given her mother’s old writing desk, a bittersweet token from a mother who made childhood magical.
When she clears it, she finds that the desk holds an unexpected surprise; one she wishes, in a way, that she hadn’t found, as wedged in the corner is a blank, faded postcard addressed to her, in her mother’s hand. At first, the postcard serves only to haunt her; as she can’t help but wonder what unwritten secret lies unsaid.
Yet, as the days pass mysterious things begin to happen, odd items go missing from her studio, only to reappear, ethereally transformed in the seemingly empty desk.
Soon Ivy realises that the postcard was never really blank, it was simply waiting … waiting for her to find it.
Part ghost story, part romantic tale set around Christmas time, The Postcard is about finding hope, even in the darkest times, and about the kind of love that transcends time and space to heal.
