The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie SocietyBook - 2008
From Library Staff
Written in the form of letters (a lost art), this novel by an aunt-and-niece team has loads of charm and is an almost theatrical experience with a plethora of enthusiastic performances.

This is a wonderful book. If you like 84 Charing Cross Road, you will love this book. Funny, touching, lovely characters. Highly recommend this book

"That's what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you to another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It's geometrically progressive - all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment."
— Mary Ann Shaffer (The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society)
