The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a lovely book, much like an old classic. One friend described it as a "modern-day 'Jane Eyre.'" I think it more like a 1940s-era "Wuthering Heights," written or edited by Jane Austen with a heroine pulled back in time from 2009.
Whatever it is, it's great.
Written in the form of letters, it tells the story of a writer .... I'll go no further.
I was educated to the history of the German occupation in the Guernsey Island. I was taught about these Channel Islands off the coast of England.
And I was reminded of what a good book is all about.
