Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

One of our Debuts of the Year 2011.

September 2011 Debut of the Month.

Gorgeously grown-up romantic comedy from a brilliant new Irish voice. Postcards from the Heart is a book about four friends in their thirties. It's about love, lust, life, death, balloon rides and missing hamsters. But most of all it's about figuring out how to stop saying 'I don't' and how to start saying 'I do'. Ensure a box of tissues is close at hand for it's likely to make you laugh hysterically and cry in equal measure.

If you like Ella Griffin you might also like to read books by Allison Pearson, Cathy Kelly and Marian Keyes.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Postcards from the Heart by Ella Griffin

Life is looking up for Saffy. She has a great job, a gorgeous flat in the most desirable part of Dublin and - after six years - it looks like her boyfriend, Greg, is going to propose. Greg (just voted the 9th most eligible man in Ireland) is on a high, too - he's about to swap his part as a heart-throb in an Irish soap for a break in Hollywood. His best mate Conor wakes up every morning with Jess, the most beautiful woman on the planet but, even after seven years and two kids, she won't marry him. He spends his days teaching teenagers and his nights writing the book he hopes will change everything, including Jess's mind. But their happy endings are playing hard to get. It seems everyone's keeping secrets - one night stands, heartbreak, grief and loss are all in the mix. It's going to take some tough questions and even tougher answers before anyone's being honest - even with themselves.


'A fresh, funny new voice. Ella Griffin can make you laugh and then cry in the turn of a page.'
Marian Keyes
