I finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society yesterday. It's such an amazing book. It's all letters written back and forth to an author, Juliet, after WWII from the island of Guernsey to London. It tells of the Occupation during that time as well as of the love of reading.
I love how the letters let you into the lives of these people. I always know when it's a good book because I didn't want it to end. I want to know what happens next! I had a few surprised moments, but I'm very happy with the way in which the book ended.
It's a love story, a story of friendship, a story of grief, and a happy tale all rolled into one.
If you have never read it...do so!
