Praise for Cartes Postales from Greece

“Hislop’s passionate love of the country breathes from every page.”

“Hislop’s love affair with Greece continues, bringing the country triumphantly to life . . . [her] imaginative and compelling stories paint a remarkable portrait of Greece and its history.”
Viv Groskop, Sunday Express

“A lavish love letter to Greece…”

“Hislop has woven colour photographs of the stunning Greek landscape into her narrative. I enjoyed being transported to Greece on Hislop’s wings of words and vivid descriptions … Cartes Postales From Greece contains all the elements of a classic Hislop…”

“When it comes to tales about Greece, Hislop is an undisputed queen – and this is easily her best novel yet.”
