A runaway New York Times bestseller that was named one of the ten best books of the year by Time and USA Today, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society has captivated readers around the world. Told with warmth and humor in a series of letters, this is a tale of finding connection in the most unexpected places.
 
January 1946: As London emerges from the Second World War, writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she’s never met, a native of Guernsey, the British island once occupied by the Nazis? As Juliet begins a remarkable correspondence, she is drawn into the world of this man and his friends, all members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a book club formed to protect its members from arrest by the Germans. Through their letters, she learns about their island, their taste in books, and the powerful, transformative impact the Occupation has had on their lives. Captivated by their stories, she sets sail for Guernsey. What she finds there will change her forever.

I really enjoyed this book. It struck a good balance of showing the painful, heavier issues of wartime life while creating generous, good-hearted characters. This book reminded me of a Jane Austen novel set in a World War Two occupation.

I absolutely loved this. The characters were so wonderful I felt that I was there on Guernsey Island myself with them. I actually enjoyed the way the story is told through a series of letters sent just after the liberation of Guernsey Island.
