Postcards From a Stranger Kindle Edition
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.
“A poignant page-turner about the devastating effects of abusive relationships and the ripples that can impact future generations…Postcards from a Stranger drew me in from the beginning and didn’t let me go until its final pages…Clark doesn’t offer any easy solutions yet the book is filled with hope and the possibility of second chances.” —Emily Cavanagh, author of This Bright Beauty and The Bloom Sisters

I’d genuinely hate to occupy a world like the one the author has so unwittingly shown to be her view of the world and motherhood.
Interesting Cara was able to forgive and still care for her father when he was so cruel to them growing up.
I truly enjoyed this book.
It is the kind of book that burns slowly, yet I couldn't wait to get five minutes peace so I could read a few more chapters.
And the story doesn't sugar coat anything, especially the highs and lows of marriage, and the loneliness of caring for an elderly parent.
Most of all, the writing is great. I love it when authors take every day situations and weave a tale around them, without resorting to cliches and dramatics. It brings back memories that are long forgotten and makes you think and reminisce.
And the epilogue was a nice touch.

The story of a family with its own history, trials and challenges, but one which develops a deep emotional connection from the reader. The journey through time and people weaves a complex path, but one that is ultimately unifying. It's an emotional meandering, much like life itself. The novel takes us through ups and downs, possibilities and disappointments, calling on us to reassess what we think we know about our own lives and how we engage with those we hold most dear.
Thought-evoking and expertly written, 'Postcards' is far more than a simple story. It invokes such feeling and emotion that, whilst hard to put down, causes the reader to pause and reflect for themselves.
What an amazing, emotional, powerful book this is. Wonderfully written, it was simply a pleasure to read that will make you smile, laugh & cry!
