The Guernsay Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a great read

I just finished reading a book that was an absolute delight and richly satisfying.  The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is told entirely through letters.  The plot centers around the German occupation of the Guernsey island during World War II.  I have to say this book has made it to my favorite list.  I highly recommend it.

My sister lent me this book and I fell in love with it. I was delighted to find it at Goodwill so that I could have a copy of my own. They are making it into a movie, by the way. :)

I can't wait to see the movie! Thanks for telling me.

Janene, I loved the book, too. I have given it as gifts to my daughters and sisters. I was really looking forward to reading more books by Mary Ann Shaffer, and I was SO sad to learn that she passed away in 2008, and that this was her first and only novel. I'm really excited to hear that a movie will be coming out, though!
