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


What a great book. I recently finished and I’m still thinking about the characters. The epistolary style (written in the form of a series of letters exchanged among the characters of the story) conveys a warmness so great you feel like you’re a friend of theirs too.

The story follows Juliet around London and later Guernsey where she befriends Islanders just after the end of the German Occupation. Through letters, Juliet learns about life on the island and its deprivations while occupied. She becomes so fond of the people there that she moves to the island temporarily and decides to write a book based on their experiences. Check catalog for availability.
