Funny, sad, heartwarming all in one. There will be at least one thing in here you will be able to relate to or you are not human!

Guernsey Potato Peel Society

This was a fun, easy, and quick read. The book is written during WWII and a writer is looking for her next book subject. Juliet starts to correspond with a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb….

As Juliet exchanges letters with this man she has never met she is drawn into his world. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society—born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island—has charming, funny, deeply human cast of characters.

Juliet begins a remarkable correspondence with the society’s members, learning about their island, their taste in books, and the impact the recent German occupation has had on their lives. Captivated by their stories, she sets sail for Guernsey, and what she finds will change her forever.

Written with warmth and humor as a series of letters, this novel is a celebration of the written word in all its guises, and of finding connection in the most surprising ways.
