Cartes Postales from Greece

Praise for Cartes Postales from Greece

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

“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…”
Sunday Mirror

“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…”
Daily Express

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

“Victoria Hislop writes so vividly about the Med, you can almost feel the scorching heat.”
Good Housekeeping
