About The Book

The much-anticipated follow-up to the Radio 2 Book Club-favourite The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman

Twenty-two-year-old Tania has moved to Montreal to study, fine-tune her French and fall in love. Finding work as a waitress in an unpretentious down-town restaurant, she meets Bilodo, a shy postman who spends his days perfecting his calligraphy and writing haiku. The two hit it off. But then one stormy day their lives take a dramatic turn, and as their destinies become entwined Tania and Bilodo are led into a world where nothing is as it seems.

A charming standalone work that reunites readers with the touching and much-loved characters first found in The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman, The Postman’s Fiancée is an enchanting, poignant and bittersweet love story that will move readers, young and old alike.

Praise for The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman

'Enchanting, philosophically astute and deeply poignant.’

– John Burnside

‘Quirky and charming with a well-executed denouement, this novella brings to mind nothing less than a giddily-lovesick Kafka.’

– Guardian
