i adored this book.
i love any book that can make me laugh and cry. it was fun, interesting, sad, happy, romantic, insightful and addicting!!!
the story takes place in a nine month period shortly after the end of world war II. juliet ashton, a writer from london, receives a letter from dawsey adams, a founding member of the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society. juliet becomes friends with dawsey and the other members of the society through letters, and eventually moves to guernsey to meet them and gather their stories about the German Occupation of the island during the war. the entire story is told through letters, telegrams and notes.
it was a treat to read and i highly recommend it. it made me wish people still wrote letters instead of text messages and emails.
maybe i will start :)
have you read it? what did you think?
