Sunday Stroll/September 7


For my Sunday Stroll this cool, rainy September day, I'm going to stay inside, sit in a comfortable chair, and stroll through my current book, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

  2. How lovely to hear from you! I'll be writing a book report when I finish, but the basic story is told in letters about Guernsey, and its people during the German occupation and the year following the end of the war. It is warm, witty, literary, poignant, and very, very perfect. If you type the title into google's blog search you will find many reviews. I'm quite, quite sure you would like it.

  3. I am looking forward to your opinion on this, Nan. I hope you love it as much as I did. I see that the US cover is not the same as ours in the UK. Shame, I think we got the better deal.

  4. Nan, I think reading inside if the weather is rainy sounds like a good idea. I have put this book on my wish list. Enjoy!!

  9. I look forward to your opinion of this story, I've read so many already. Haven't yet visited Guernsey, but have been to its neighbour island Jersey many times, where we toured the German bunkers and encampments, and heard many a fascinating tale of the occupation.

    So this book is obviously on my list, though when exactly I'll get round to reading it, heaven only knows.

    Enjoy!
