Spine and cover creases, light edgewear. Page edges pale yellow; interior pages clean, none loose.; A young woman and her family leave London for what they hope will be an idyllic life in Cornwall. It doesn't *exactly* turn out like that. In this humourous and warm-hearted first memoir she shares her turbulent first year working with the Royal Mail and her transformation from outsider to 'posh postie'.
"She starts in the bitter darkness of midwinter, faced with the perils of the Christmas rush, a van with a mind of its own and a host of unfamiliar routes, local characters - and their animals, large and small. But, day by day and month by month, she meets and learns to love a wonderfully colourful cast of characters until her second Christmas in Cornwall is entirely different from the first, as the community goes out of its way to thank her with small gifts and other tokens of their affection."; Image is actual copy on offer.
