The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Written by Mary Ann Shaffer
Fiction

This story, co-written by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, is told in letters between writer Juliet Ashton and Guernsey Island residents who formed the society from which the book gets its name during the German occupation in World War II. Islanders started the society as a way of meeting, and getting around regulations imposed by their Nazi occupiers. Reminiscent of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, I liked that this book helps the reader understand many aspects of World War II, but without being too jarring.
