I rarely blog book reviews, but this lovely book has a World War II theme and I adore a good love story with some deeper historical contexts.
Plus, we just watched the recently-released Netflix movie and to my joy the movie was wonderful and very much in keeping with the book.
Until I sat down to write this, I hadn’t realized that the author, Mary Ann Shaffer, died before the book was published and that her niece helped her finish it.
The added poignancy made the story feel that much sweeter.
This isn’t a book review. Just a recommendation to read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society AND watch the movie. You’ll be glad you did.

Thanks for sharing. I’ve yet to see the film but intend to.
I saw the movie and loved it too, Cindy. It also helped that I had seen an earlier movie of the Nazi occupation of the Channel Islands, though I can’t recall the title.
