Sweet Book

If you want to read a book that will make you laugh, cry, and feel good all at the same time, try the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. A friend on a forum recommended it and it is everything that she said.

I will warn you that it is solely a book of 'letters' sent back and forth between friends. I don't usually like these sort of books, but this one drew me right in and I loved reading it. It is set on the Island of Guernsey, after WWII. The book, though fiction, delves into the problems that this tiny island suffered under German occupation. I learned a lot of things from this book!
Check it out from the library, borrow it from a friend, or buy it used on Amazon.

Have a great day!


  1. Hi RM,
    I will look about that book whn I go to the library. I was just there a few days ago and got three books. I love reading.
    Put a picture on my site of the white tin pitcher I have. I have a coffee pot too. I like your white tin ware bowl.
    Been in the 70's for the last few days, such a treat from all that muggy hot weather.
    Hope all is well in your world.

  2. This was one book I had to wait for on reserve at the library and it was worth the wait...a great read :)

  3. Sounds fun, Rose Mary! I'll see if the library has it!
