Book Review: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, by Mary Ann Shaffer

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie SocietyThe 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.
