Shelley When Will There by Good News by Kate Atkinson

Kate Atkinson is a good writer - I enjoyed the characters very much and will probably seek out and read the first two books in the series. The difficult part for me was the storyline. The tale is split into so many different threads that are woven together at the very end, I found it hard to keep track of it all, or plausible for that matter. I loved Reggie and the dog Sadie!

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

I have been looking forward to reading this book and I wasn't disappointed. Not literary by any means, just an enjoyable escape into post-WWII times. The characters were charming, and I couldn't help casting them in a future movie. Kate Winslet would be perfect as Juliet! I wonder if tourism to the Channel Islands has increased greatly - I've added Guernsey as a place I would love to visit.
