Title: The Postcard
Author: Fern Britton
Blurb: Secrets. Sisters. The summer that changed everything . . .
Life in the Cornish village of Pendruggan isn’t always picture perfect. Penny Leighton has never told anyone why she’s estranged from her mother and sister. For years she’s kept her family secrets locked away in her heart, but they’ve been quietly eating away at her. When an unwelcome visitor blows in, Penny is brought face to face with the past. And a postcard, tucked away in a long-hidden case, holds the truth that could change everything.
Young Ella has come back to the place where she spent a happy childhood with her grandmother. Now she’s here to search for everything missing in her life. Taken under Penny’s broken wing for the summer, the safe haven of Pendruggan feels like the place for a fresh start. Soon, however, Ella starts to wonder if perhaps her real legacy doesn’t lie in the past at all.
Escape to Cornwall this summer with Sunday Times bestseller, Fern Britton.
Review: Fern Britton has done it again. The Postcard is perfect and highlights important difficulties in such a lovely way.
As we follow Penny’s journey through this story we discover that she is suffering from depression, I wont give away too much details here to the plot but what I will say is that Fern writes in her unique style that makes reading about this topic comforting giving hope. I suffer from depression and this was a comfort to read. I would normal stop reading anything that hints at something I find difficult but this was an exception.
Cornwall is one of my top favourite places to visit and Fern has captured the essence of Cornwall between the pages perfectly.
The story is left in such a way that I am looking forward to Fern’s next book which I hope revisits Pendruggan and more of Ella’s story.
I adore Fern Britton and her personality shines through her writing. Her books are perfect for anyone who loves reading about romance, hope, family and friendship’s set in idyllic parts of Britain.
