A great read!
I really enjoyed The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. The characters were wonderful and while the letters format seemed a bit boring at first, it did get good fast. I have been on a World War II kick lately, I read Defiance (after really enjoying the movie. I loved Daniel Craig, but I also was fascinated at the story of 1200 Jews surviving in the forest for 2 1/2 years during WW II). I also had the Rape of Europa on my "to read" list but instead saw the documentary on our netflix view on demand (I love our Blu-Ray player!) and was fascinated about the art that was stolen during WW II. When I visited the Hermitage with my mom, stepdad, and sister in 1996 (I think it was 1996), we saw the Hidden Treasures exhibit, and I was amazed at all of the impressionist pieces that Russia had stolen from the Germans who had stolen them from .... many nameless folks.
