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!
