Historical novel about the German occupation of Guernsey Island during World War II. The history in this book was fascinating and I'm certain will be brand new information to almost any reader, and the love story had me biting my nails. I'm often annoyed by the way romance is written in books, but this one captivated me, especially because it wasn't too lovey-dovey (in other words, it in no way resembled a Nicholas Starks novel). Don't misunderstand--this is not a romance novel, it is a historical novel written in letters--but the love story was one of my favorite parts.

This book also made me want to brush up on my British literature. It was much more fun to read when I new the poets/authors being discussed.
