When I first started this book, I thought it was a little boring. It took a bit to get used to the correspondence style in which the book is written, and the subject matter was a little dry at first. But once I got into it, I loved it. I was a squealing, giggling mess by the time this book was over. The characters are so cute and quirky, you can’t help but root for them.
The book takes place is post World War II Great Britain. The main character, Juliet, is a writer in her early thirties who spent the war writing a humorous column for the London Times. She begins to correspond with some of the residents on the channel island of Guernsey, who lived under German occupation during the war. They get to know each other through their letters, and their stories are profound and truly a pleasure to read.
I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a charming book to read! (As always, you can see my review of this book on Goodreads)
