rave reviews.

recently i finished one of the most captivating books i have picked up in quite some time. a perfect combo of love, history, charm, and relationships.
 it's set in london and on the channel island of guernsey in 1946. a writer, juliet ashton, receives a letter from a complete stranger, who just so happens to be a founding member of a remarkable society- the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society. thus begins a fascinating story, which unfolds through letters, of this tiny island during the German occupation and the members who began this unique group. 

rave reviews:
i can't remember the last time i discovered a novel as smart and delightful as this one, a world so vivid that i kept forgetting this was a work of fiction populated with characters so utterly wonderful that i kept forgetting they weren't my actual friends and neighbors. treat yourself to this book please. i can't recommend it highly enough.
-Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

mary ann shaffer and annie barrows have written a wondrous, delightful, poignant book- part jane austen, part history lesson. the letters in the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society aren't addressed to you, but they are meant for you. it's a book everyone should read. an absolute treasure.
-Sarah Addison Allen, author of Garden Spells

are there any great books you've read lately?
happy beach/summer reading! -J
