About the book
A year after the kiss that brought them together in a snowy train-station doorway, Maya and James are embarking on another journey – this time around the world. The trip starts promisingly, with an opulent and romantic Indian wedding. But as their travels continue, Maya fears that ‘love at first sight’ might not survive trains, planes and tuk tuks, especially when she realises that what she really wants is a baby, and James doesn’t feel the same. Can Maya and James navigate their different hopes and dreams to stay together? Or is love at first sight just a myth after all…The Postcard continues the once-in-a-lifetime love story that readers so took to their hearts.
I feel like I’ve been talking about this book forever. I’m so excited that it’s finally here! I absolutely loved The Note and I so badly wanted to know what became of Maya and Train Man. Thankfully, there are these things called sequels and I’m very much here for this particular one!
To say I loved The Postcard is a huge understatement. It is bubbling over with charm.
As I mentioned above, The Postcard is a sequel to The Note but it can very much be read as a standalone.
Zoë writes characters that are so easy to connect with. We’ve got Maya and James and also Nena and Tom. They’re flawed and they’re all imperfectly perfect humans.
This book is full of a really good mix of laughter, friendship, tears and realistic characters. It makes for a very easy and fun read.
I can’t vouch for the back-packing stories in the book as I never did that myself (although these stories are everything I imagine it to be and then some!) but I can speak from the heart when it comes to having a new-born and needing your best friend. I’m so glad the book featured a storyline like that of Nena.
I feel like the book world needs a male lead like James right now. I’m reading so many books of late where the male lead just isn’t very pleasant for varied reasons and, for me, Train Man has come along just in the nick of time!
Thanks so much to Vicky at Head of Zeus for my copy of this book in return for an honest review. I loved every, single page!
