The Postcard by Fern Britton

Into the Wild

Read The Postcard Online Free - 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.

Set in the beautiful Cornish village of Penduggan, the area and community are brought to life in this novel - warts and all! My main problem with this story was that I really didn’t like the main character for most of the story - she’s such a negative person! However, if you persevere like I did,...

Mixed reviews about this book. While i really did enjoy the story, I found the character Penny and her negative behaviour put me off reading. I normally finish a book in a day or so, but this book took me 3 weeks to read! Should have been a great feel good story. Just couldnt take to the character...

All reviews can be found on my blog at I need to confess something. I am actually quite disgusted with myself. Promise you won't hold it against me? -breathes- Until 'The Postcard', I had never, ever picked up a Fern Britton novel. I don't even have a good reas...

The Postcard by Fern Britton is a contemporary story surrounding two sets of siblings and secrets from the past. It was a wonderful entertaining read that had my pulse rising as I read towards the conclusion. Families can be messy affairs - a melting pot for jealousy, hurt feelings and sibling riv...

This is the second book by Fern that I've read, and based on this I'd still happily read others. I find Fern's writing engaging and easy to read, and her characters realistic - this book is no exception. I enjoyed the setting very much, as well as the very real things that happen to the character...
