Summary

A secret lies buried at the heart of her family - but it can’t stay hidden forever.

When Cara stumbles across a stash of old postcards in the attic, their contents make her question everything she thought she knew.

The story she pieces together is confusing and unsettling, and appears to have been patched over with lies. But who can tell her the truth? With her father sinking into Alzheimer’s and her brother reluctant to help, it seems Cara will never find the answers to her questions. One thing is clear, though: someone knows more than they’re letting on.

Torn between loyalty to her family and dread of what she might find, Cara digs into the early years of her parents’ troubled marriage, hunting down long-lost relatives who might help unravel the mystery. But the picture that begins to emerge is not at all the one she’d expected - because as she soon discovers, lies have a habit of multiplying....

Revised edition: This edition of Postcards from a Stranger includes editorial revisions.

Spoilt by the reader

Once again I have bought an audiobook and been unable to listen to it because the reader grates on me. People who can't do accents should not try to do them. It would be better just read in a straightforward fashion.

Mothers and Children

It's a dual narrative having to do with mother's upbringing and subsequent unhappy marriage. Then the grown designer's current life with dad who has Alzheimer's. They bring in a nurse who we suspect all along is the mother. However, there is a twist at the end. It was an engaging story but I roundhouse the twist was handled to be confusing.

This was a great book.

It is a family story without the usual trappings of gooey emotion or impossible situations.

Instead, it was very grown up and thought provoking. And it moved me because of it. The main character is as she should be, not irreparably damaged and unable to cope. She is a well rounded product of her life and has very reasonable reactions to her changing situation. Thank goodness for a well written book with no victimhood, global warning or left winged PC BS mucking up the story.

I think I'll change the 4 stars to 5, I liked it more than I realized.

The narration was excellent.
