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 cease. But the montage she has created 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. Its pages tell the story of a man's odyssey through Greece. Moving, surprising and sometimes dark, A's tale unfolds with the discovery not only of a culture but also of a desire to live life to the full once more. Beloved, bestselling author Victoria Hislop's 'Cartes Postales from Greece' is fiction illustrated with photographs that make this journey around Greece, already alive in the imagination, linger forever in the mind.

The latest by Victoria Hislop as usual set in Greece. Ellie living in London receives a series of postcards from all over Greece intended for the previous occupant. She becomes fascinated with the places and decides to take a holiday to see them all for herself. On the day of departure a journal arrives, a cathartic chronicle of the end of the senders relationship. Each place he travels has a Greek legend/myth associated with it. Frankly I got bored, I was more interested in knowing more about Ellie and her journey. I have to admit to skipping the last few stories to read the end when it reverts back to Ellie's story, (should have been several chapters sooner). Does she track down the author of the journal? read and find out. Unfortunately underwhelmed, IMHO VH has never quite lived up to her first The Island which is by far my favourite.
