The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

A book in letter format, containing the correspondences of Juliet Ashton, writer. Set in 1946, the book not only shows Juliet's life, but also introduces us to the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, formed during the Nazi occupation of the Channel Islands.

This is a truly heartwarming book and love story. Its a deceptively complex book, because its a book about people and relationships. I read it in one day, I couldn't put it down.. it is lighthearted, warm, sad, happy... its a book about love. All kinds of love, but nothing graphic! Its just a simple, refreshing book.
