Was yesterday Wednesday? Really? I totally spaced it! Partly because of this wonderful book I’m reading. Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, my wonderfully amazing cousin recommended it to me. I am loving it, so far so good. It is a breath of fresh air witty and charming.
Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
written by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
I can’t remember the last time I discovered a novel as smart and delightful as this one, a world so vivid that I kept forgetting this was a work of fiction populated with characters so utterly wonderful that I kept forgetting they weren’t my actual friends and neighbors. Treat yourself to this book please—I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
January 1946: writer Juliet Ashton receives a letter from a stranger, a founding member of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. And so begins a remarkable tale of the island of Guernsey during the German occupation, and of a society as extraordinary as its name.
