Visit Guernsey (Shaeffer and Barrows) in an e-book bargain…movie coming soon!

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society: A Novel

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 book is worth reading and I am eagerly anticipating the movie which will star Lily James from Downton Abbey.
