The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Bibliophile810, January 30, 2013

This novel consists of letters written back and forth between a newspaper columnist, her editor, and a group of quirky characters on a lonely island during WWII. The story unfolds with humor and charm as we discover the unique residents on the island and how they endure the German occupation. Their individual memories weave a story that concenters around a brave young woman eventually sent to a concentration camp. Although a work of fiction, I found the characters believable and their lives a reflection of the indomitability of the human spirit.
