The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society – Mary Ann Shaffer – 9/10

GLPPPS Written in epistolary form (new for me), this sweet novel records an unlikely correspondence and friendship struck up after a Guernsey pig-farmer buys a second-hand book once owned by a London-based authoress, and the authoress’ ensuing trip to Guernsey which rescues her from her creative doldrums.

Fittingly, I picked it up myself as a second-hand book and loved it. I thought it was beautiful, sincere, poetic and generally an excellent read.
