"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Letters, it all started a letter. The war was over in England but the memories of "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" remain. Juliet Ashton had no idea what this "society" was, but through correspondence with its members, she found a camaraderie and kinship like no other. While nothing can take away the sting of having a foreign army occupy your town and take control of everything, the book discussions gave way to personal interactions and hope that kept them all sane. Come read the letters and uncover the wonders of "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society."

I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to everyone. While it can be confusing to follow the letters at times, that quickly dissipates as the story unfolds.
