Well, what can I say other than I loved this book. Set in Guernsey in the aftermath of World War II the inhabitants tell, in a series of letters, about life on the Island during that war. This the author has done brilliantly, showing the resilience and bravery of the islanders in the face of loss and depravation and, at the same time, conveying their wit with her eccentric characters. A book that will brings a tear to the eye at times, but is also uplifting. It’s definitely one that I will keep on my shelf to read again.
