Not really a review, more a brief description of the main thrust of the story line of this highly readable book, by our own resident book reviewer, Angela Galvin.

The Postcard by Leah Fleming

Starting in Adelaide with the death of her father, an inheritance box of letters and keepsakes, Melissa embarks on a journey to the UK. The story follows her quest to fill in the gaps in the deathbed story she was told.

Essentially this is a story of Mothers and Daughters and family history.

Flipping between the present day and Melissa’s settling in to study and the pre-war Scotland, London and wartime Egypt of Callie and Phoebe it evolves quickly drawing you in.

This is a terrific book. A well crafted story – good research – and written well. Thoroughly enjoyable.
