The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society: A Novel

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer Wonderful -- I was interested in Juliet (the writer), her circle (Sidney, her publisher, Sophie her friend, Sidney's sister, not so interested in the boyfriend Markham), the people on Guernsey (Elizabeth in absentia, especially her 4 year old daughter Kit, Dawsey, Isola, and almost all the characters on the island), and the interplay of the stories. I became interested in the history of the Channel Islands during WWII and have started reading some on that, as well as requesting a BBC DVD dramatization of Island at War about this. Pulls in love of reading /transformational power of reading, weariness of the war (but how can you put it aside?), a great love story, references to Pride and Prejudice. Everything to love.
