Every once in a blue moon, a novel comes along that reminds you why it is you are obsessed with books. This is that book. It may be as close to perfection as a novel can get.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society tells the epistolary story of one Juliet Ashton, a columnist and new author living in post-WWII London. Through her witty, insightful letters we are introduced to the delightful inhabitants of Guernsey, an island in the English Channel occupied by Germans during the war. A much larger tale emerges and we, along with Juliet, are drawn into their world.

Think of savoring a meal at your favorite restaurant. You want to relish every bite and each bite tastes better than the last. That is what it is like to experience this novel. Each letter, each paragraph, is delicious.

Do NOT miss reading this book. Go out and get your hands on a copy right now and then set aside the next couple of days to read it. You will not regret it.
