The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society: A Novel

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer Don't let the title of the book make you pass it by. While it sounds like a pure chick-lit novel, it is much more historical than the title reveals. Written entirely in the form of letters or (in one case) diary, the authors do an amazing job of telling a fully developed and very engaging story about the English channel island of Guernsey. For those who love literature, it has the additional draw of dwelling on great works of literature with affection and demonstrating how stories often help people make it through difficult situations and times.
