Its wonderful...

Its a beautiful and tragic story set in Guernsey, one of the channel islands that was occupied by the Germans for 5 years during WWII. This is set after the war and revolves around a literary society that sprung up as a cover during the Nazi occupation and continued because of a shared love of books that took them away from the horror around them. One member forms of relationship through letters with an author living in London and she also wracked by survivor guilt and grief feels a kinship with these people, eventually travelling to the island to interview them for a possible novel. Lot of lost souls , shared grief and some of the warmest most sincerely lovely characters that you will find, you'll want to take them home with you. Theres laughter and sadness with heaping spoonfuls of heart, deep bonds of friendship like family and plenty of romance as well. You will adore every moment.
