If you’re looking for a fun summer read, this is your book. It’s a story about a writer who stumbles upon the stories of a group who lived through the occupation of Guernsey island during the second world war. She comes to love the people after a visit that turns into a longer stay.
The whole story is told through correspondence, which at times felt a little contrived. If key people were in proximity, then new people were found with whom to correspond. Often correspondence happens between people living down the street.
I listened to the book as an audio book and I think that helped separate all of the different letters from different characters.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was surprised by all I learned about the WWII occupation of the island.
