The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
The entire book is written in the format of a series of letters (how very Jane Austen!) but was written about the World War II time period. Juliet is a writer who is looking for her next subject when she receives a random letter in the mail from a man in Guernsey who found one of her books. He asks her for a simple favor and a long correspondence springs up between them. Juliet is smitten with the story of the German occupation of this small island and the delightful people who endured through the war.
The books was so charming, so witty, so packed with the full range of what makes humanity so utterly delightful. The sense of humor and warmth of the authors was woven into a masterful writing style and a beautifully crafted story that made for an incredible read!
