This book sounded like a perfect summer holiday read and I was really excited to take it with me on our boating holiday.
The Postcard promised so much: “Secrets. Sisters. The summer that changed everything”. The question is – Does it deliver what it promises?
I have so many mixed feelings about this book. The story was confusing but yet very promising. I really wanted to like this book. Description of little village called Pendruggan made you want to live there. You could close your eyes and imagine seaside nearby…
I struggled to like main characters: Penny and her sister Suzy. Penny’s negativity and rudeness really put me down reading the story. Her husband, vicar Simon didn’t help it either and her sister Suzy just a very greedy and miserable person. I understand that all this was about very complicated family dynamics, mental health issues and just general characters, but I would appreciate if I did not need to read such misery throughout all book (four hundred odd pages!). The main characters seemed to change their personalities so quickly. If you were behaving like a whiny little bitch through all the story, do not expect me to sudden like you in the end of the book. It just will not happen.
I honestly did not understand the ending of this book. It gave no answers just more questions about what happened next. I was left wondered if that means that there could be a sequence of this book as it was left hanging?
