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!
