The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

This Book Will Warm Your Heart

I’m not much of a fan of reading a book because everyone else is, but if I would have skipped this one, I would have missed out on a true gem.

Juliet Ashton is awash in indecision; she has just finished a very impressive newspaper series and is looking for a new book adventure. Since WWII has just ended and everyone is still uncertain she just doesn’t know what to do. That is until she is introduced to the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and learns about their trials and fortitude while living under the ruling thumb of the Germans on Guernsey.

Told in a back and forth letter and telegram style, this book brings you the joys and tears of some truly memorable characters; people that have always lived together but truly learned to love together when an incredibly brave woman and a delightful little girl keep their spirits up during a devastating time and its aftermath.

This book will warm you heart and have you laughing out loud.
