See the Amalfi Coast - Frances M. ThompsonSee the Amalfi Coast tells the story of Martin, a 50-something year old Yorkshireman with a penchant for swearing and making model aircraft in his shed. Martin is in love with Naples and Campania, a corner of Italy famous for Pompeii, pizza and the mafia. But with a family to provide for and his redundancy to deal with, Martin never made the journey to this part of the world he was so fascinated by. Until now...

Readers have described See the Amalfi Coast as "funny, evocative and moving", "witty, clever and so honest" and "a wonderful read". Find out why Martin and his loyal, loving wife have finally made the journey to see the Amalfi Coast and travel with them as a number of twists and turns give new meaning to their "holiday of a lifetime".

See the Amalfi Coast is part of the Shy Feet: Short Stories Inspired by Travel collection.

You can download the book for free to read on your Kindle, ePub reader (e.g. Nook, Kobo, iBooks etc) or as a pdf for tablets or a pdf for your desktop.
