Silver Travel Book Club
We know you love travelling, and we also know that many Silver Travellers are just as passionate about books. So what could be better than combining both?
One of our regular writers, Andrew Morris, has introduced us to TripFiction, a wonderful website focusing on books with a strong sense of place, allowing you to see a location through an author's eyes.
Imagine reading Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises as you sip a cold beer in a Pamplona street, just before the running of the bulls for the Festival of San Fermin. Or Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile, as you slowly wend your own way through Egypt, waiting for the dinner gong on board a cruise booked with one of Silver Travel Advisor's trusted partners. Or perhaps you just want to explore exotic Italy from the comfort of your own armchair, following the devious antics of The Talented Mr. Ripley through the pages of Patricia Highsmith's psychological thriller.
Each month, we'll find out what Andrew is reading .and the location he's visiting. You can join him and - thanks to TripFiction and their publishing contacts - two lucky Silver Travel Book Club readers can even win a free copy of the book.
Andrew's Book of the Month
This month Andrew is reading Rosanna Ley's latest novel The Little Theatre by the Sea. The author whisks you off to sunny Sardinia, with an enchanting tale of intrigue and romance, whilst immersed in local food, wine and culture. And travelling with Silver Travel Advisor partner Sardatur Holidays, Andrew is planning to visit sunny Sardinia to follow in the footsteps of Rosanna's principal character, interior designer Faye.
He will visit the real town that becomes fictional Deriu in the novel, the location of the mystery-laden Little Theatre by the Sea. He'll visit the walled Catalan city of Alghero, which Faye explores with her father on a road-trip while they both mark time at important times in their lives. And he'll force himself to try some of the Sardinian food and wine that Faye enjoys whilst working on the historic theatre.
We’d love to know about your own adventures in Sardinia.
