A book based on a 40-year-old mystery set in Weston-super-Mare has been winning rave reviews.

Author Andy Paulcroft grew up in Weston and has included some of the town’s famous landmarks in his novel, Postcards From Another Life.

The book is set in the summers of 1977 and 2017 and the story follows the relationships of two young men.

Andy, who attended Lancaster House School, said: “Key to the story are dreams which revolve around a mystery, from 40 years before.

“Weston beach and the area around the old church at Uphill are wonderful locations for a mystery.

“I know Weston, and my professional life has been involved in catering. Hence, the story is set around a hotel in the town during both periods.”

It took Andy nine months to write the book which he has now self-published and he has already started penning his second novel.
