Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society"

Isn't that a delightful name? It's actually the name of an historical fiction by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. It's set in England and the Isle of Guernsey, one of the Channel Islands, directly after World War II. The main character is an author, Juliet Ashton, who begins a correspondence with several people on the island after one of them wrote to her when they had purchased a used book that once had belonged to Juliet. The story is told through all the letters. (Remember when people wrote letters?)

I don't want to give any of the story away because it is very charming. It was one I didn't figure out along the way. Maybe I was enjoying it too much to try.
