July Books 13) The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, by Mary Anne Shaffer and Annie Bar

This is a lovely heartwarming novel, set in 1946 and told in epistolary form, about a young woman who uncovers the story of a small group of people in Guernsey who held together through the German occupation by setting up a book club. It had me captivated in the first few pages, which economically portray a traumatised small society coming to terms with the present and the future, and then develops into a more conventional but entirely pleasing love story. Strongly recommended.
