I stumbled over this neat little book, The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Society, quite by accident – and found a little gem. As the title suggests the book is set in Guernsey during WWII. The book was published in 2008.
It was written by Mary Anne Shaffer and her niece Annie Barrows who did the final edit as a result of Schaffer being extremely ill.
It is a book in letter format, which doesn't always work. But I liked this one. It is a quick read with a lot of humor in the darker setting of the German occupation of Guernsey. It has been made into a film but I haven't seen it so don't know if it is any good.
Be warned, if you read the book, you will want to go to Guernsey. I haven't managed it yet but hope to one day.
