A natural storyteller, Ella Griffin has a real skill, moving seamlessly between the most painful of truths and laugh-out-loud comedy, and is a must for fans of Marian Keyes.

Synopsis

The Heart Whisperer by Ella Griffin

At thirty-three, Claire's mother had everything to live for. But she died in a tragic accident. And it was her daughter's fault. Now Claire is the same age. A floundering actress with a broken heart. Her life is going nowhere in the company of her gorgeous best friend, ex-rock star, Ray Devine. Her estranged brother, Nick, is back from America with his perfect wife. But Dublin is full of dark memories and he is already planning his escape. What will happen when another accident throws brother and sister together and a lifetime of secrets come to light?

Reviews

'A brilliant debut novel' (4 stars) HEAT

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

'A touching story that reminds us all that love's never as simple as it sounds.' WOMAN

'This thrilling story of romance and deceit is too good to put down.' CLOSER

'As debut novels go this is one stomping entry into the world of storytelling. Like all good romcoms, Postcards from the Heart is a love story with a twist, but its also got the added element of wit, humour and the odd tear here and there. A fabulous read.' RTE GUIDE

'A smart portrayal of four friends efforts to find a path through the undergrowth of thirtysomething life. DAILY TELEGRAPH

'Following the lives of four thirty-something friends, it has all the elements of great chick-lit: think the humour of Marian Keyes, the warmth of Cathy Kelly, with just a sprinkling of Jackie Collins naughtiness thrown in for good measure.' IRISH INDEPENDENT

'Ella Griffin's hugely enjoyable debut ... deftly mixes light and shade, humour and conflict ... like Allison Pearson in I don't know how She Does It, Griffin puts a fresh spin on the having-it-all conundrum of juggling relationships and caring from children and parents with the demands of a career.' IRISH SUNDAY INDEPENDENT

'A brilliant read which I found it hard to put down.' SOUTH WALES ARGUS

'packed with characters, plot twists and humorous incident ... a journey on which many readers will be happily swept away' IRISH TIMES

'A funny, zany romp through the glitzier side of Dublin' IRISH EXAMINER
