Another Manx-based novel

THE Island has once again shown it is a source of inspiration as it is the setting for a new romance novel.
Amandine: Amour. Glamour. On Tour, written by Elena Scialtiel, is set in the Isle of Man and Dublin.

The self-published ‘chick-lit’ novel follows hotshot French travel and fashion journalist Amandine Avantoux, who is trying to deal with the crisis of her impending 40th birthday. Amandine travels to the Island for the first time in 2003 to attend Tynwald Day and seems to find love.

Elena said: ‘Having visited the Isle myself in July 2008, the book indulges in descriptions of its natural beauty and historical monuments although all characters and brand names are strictly fictitious.’
