Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

By: Shaffer, Mary Ann & Annie Barrows
Price: $14.00

Dial Press (Random House), New York, 2009. This a great fictionalized account of the WWII history of the Channel Islands between France and England, owned by England but occupied by the Nazis during the war. Told in the form of letters, with the binding thread being the writer who is researching a new book on the topic and becomes personally involved with the islanders just after the war. Another great book club book. Paperback, 288 pages.
