History shapes those who travel through it
Determined to save the antiques store she has inherited from ruin after the unexplained disappearance of her parents, Sarah Lester discovers a jumbled collection of vintage postcards which lead her on a journey through time.
Unprepared for the story the postcards weave about their reclusive former owner, Sarah’s life is thrown into disarray as she is transported to Victorian London, colonial New Zealand and to the British Raj in nineteenth century India.
Sarah’s journey through time could solve the mystery of her parents’ disappearance. But one impossible question remains: what will staying in the past do to her future?
Fifteen Postcards is the first book in The Old Curiosity Shop trilogy.
For many years Kirsten McKenzie worked in her family's antique store, where she went from being allowed to sell the 50c postcards to selling $5,000 Worcester vases and seventeenth century silverware, providing a unique insight into the world of antiques which touches every aspect of her writing.
Now a full time author, her historical time slip series – The Old Curiosity Shop series, has been described as 'Time Travellers Wife meets The Far Pavilions', and 'Antiques Roadshow gone viral'.
Her gothic horror novel Painted was released in June 2017, followed by her medical thriller Doctor Perry in 2018.
