Penny is a TV producer who, when filming in Cornwall, met and fell in love with the local vicar. Now, five years and a small child later, life is not treating her well. Coupled with her present hopelessness is her back story of sibling jealousy and childhood trauma. Then her sister turns up again and despite appearances, seems not to have changed. We end with a cliff-hanger, albeit for a peripheral character, so a sequel seems almost inevitable. I do hope so for this is a charming read. It is a most enjoyable foray into the Cornish scene of small villages, gossip and real characters, like a Cornish cream tea, utterly predictable but thoroughly enjoyable and very satisfying. There is lots of action, lots of plot and plenty to keep you on tenterhooks. Highly recommended. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

The Postcard by Fern Britton

The new witty and warm novel from the Sunday Times best-selling author and TV presenter, Fern Britton. 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.
