I previously blogged about The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, a novel that has truly deserved its popularity. Here is a copy of that entry.
“Did you know that the Germans occupied the British island of Guernsey for five years during WW II? In this epistolary novel, through the eyes of Juliet, the authors tell the stories of islanders of all ages and backgrounds. The characters are portrayed with a deft touch as their foibles and humanity are explored. There is even some romance. It is trite to say but the characters felt like friends with whom I wanted to spend lots of time. Highly recommended! Enjoy finding out what the pie is and why it was created.”
The Truth…is the next novel written by one of the authors of the Guernsey book. I have not as yet read it but am looking forward to doing so. Right now it is $1.99 for the e-book.
Have any of you watched Queen Sugar on the OWN network? There have been several engaging series of this story about an extended African American family who live in Louisiana. I looked forward to it each week. Important issues were explored while always keeping the watcher engaged. Now you can read the book (for $1.99) that the series was based on. The book is not exactly the same as the series in all aspects but the two complement one another. It will be worth your time.
