The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a really fun book, told in letters, that it seems everyone loves. Although it's like a light and fluffy story with a little twist of romance thrown in, Shaffer deepens it through first-person accounts of Holocaust survivors and details from post-war reconstruction and its effect on so many people--details that we don't really think about anymore.
I enjoyed spending time with these characters that became quite real to me. This is more of the book I was expecting Ella Minnow Pea to be, and so I was a bit disappointed when I read that. But no disappointment here after my trip to Guernsey! Highly recommended.
