£0.77 “The Postcard: A Novella” by Lily Graham
Genre: Chick-lit, Contemporary Romance
“She always said she’d find a way to let me know that death wasn’t the end …”
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 hidden inside 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 Christmas tale, The Postcard is about finding hope, even in the darkest times, and about the kind of love that transcends time and space to heal.
