The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Juliet Ashton becomes famous during WWII writing humorous and "sunny" anecdotes during and after the war under nom de plume, Lizzie Bickerstaff. Juliet receives many letters from readers but one letter, describing the formation of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society from the German occupied island of Guernsey in the English Channel. Juliet begins writing back and forth with members of the society on Guernsey.

Guernsey is written in letter form between Juliet, townspeople on Guernsey, Juliet's editor Sidney and his co-workers as well as her best friend Sophie. This was a wonderful book. I loved the story and loved the characters. I highly recommend it.
