Week after week, the postcards arrive, addressed to a name Ellie does not know, with no return address, each signed with an initial: A. With their bright skies, blue seas and alluring images of Greece, these cartes postales brighten her life. After six months, to her disappointment, they cease. But the montage she has created on the wall of her flat has cast a spell. She must see this country for herself. On the morning Ellie leaves for Athens, a notebook arrives. Its pages tell the story of a man’s odyssey through Greece. Moving, surprising and sometimes dark, A‘s tale unfolds with the discovery not only of a culture but also of a desire to live life to the full once more. Victoria Hislop is the best-selling author of four novels, all inspired by her love of the Mediterranean. Cartes Postales from Greece is fiction illustrated by  photographs  which she will be showing on the night. This journey around Greece will bring a few hours of sunshine to an autumn  evening in Ely!

PLEASE NOTE, THE VENUE FOR THIS EVENING HAS CHANGED SINCE FIRST ANNOUNCED. VICTORIA WILL NOW BE SPEAKING AT ST.MARY’S CHURCH.
