I am glad I listened to this book! I loved the voices and the accents and I think I would have skimmed the letters instead of truly hearing them.

This book is all letters back and forth between the characters and though at first I wasn’t in love with this idea, it came together so nicely and developed the characters into people I would love to know! It was an enjoyable listen and I was kind of sad that it was over!

Loved it! Absolutely delightful. Great characters and well told. And learned something about the Guernsey occupation during WWII along the way. I will read this one again and again.

Charming, informative book of letters between a London writer and the citizens of the Isle of Guernsey about German occupation of the island during WWII and its affect on the islanders. Very poignant and personable tale.
