The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
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.
That’s what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you onto another book, and another bit there will lead you to a third book. It’s geometrically progressive–all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment.
Although I am only about halfway through The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society novel, I am enthralled. It is an excellent read!
