“That's what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you to another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It's geometrically progressive - all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment.” ― Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society Peel Pies, Books Online, Books Club, Books Worth, Pies Society, Potatoes Peel, Guernsey Literary, Anne Shaffer, Mary Anne
"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer. A tremendous book recommended to me Michelle Steffes.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows weaves together letters and story lines from the 1940s to tell the story of a quirky society against the backdrop of a dark war.
A friend's Bookclub rated this a 9. A rather sad story told from the point of view of Ernest Hemmingway's first wife, Hadley. It was like riding a tiger; you didn't want to stay on but couldn't get off. She and Ernest agreed on at least one thing; he was meant to be worshipped. Still, it was a very interesting description of life in the fast lane; the beginning of what was known as the Jazz Age. (most of it set in Europe). I liked The Paris Wife.
