Review: THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

guernseySandy from You’ve GOTTA read this! recently posted a review of the audio version of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.  Here’s a snippet:

We are in London in the year 1946. The war just over, the world is struggling to find its footing again. Juliet Ashton is a young woman who has just hit it big with a recently published book, and she is looking for a new muse for her next project. Serendipitously, she received a letter from a Mr. Dawsey Adams, a native of Guernsey, one of England’s channel islands. Mr. Adams has come to possess a used book written by Charles Lamb, which he is quite taken with, and Juliet’s name and address is written on the inside of the front cover. How did it find its way from London to Guernsey? Since there are no bookstores in operation currently in Guernsey, could Juliet give him the name and address of one in London where he could order more books by this author? Juliet and Dawsey begin corresponding, finding much in common, and a wonderful tale unfolds.
