  1. Hi Kim,
    Welcome home. Hope your holiday was relaxing.
    I too am reading this book right now, as I was spurred on by our upcoming trip to the British Isles.
    One of our stops is St. Peter Port.
    A good read.

  2. You’re going there? I do hope you take lots of pictures and post about it on your blog – my curiosity is totally piqued now.

  3. Kim, I also really enjoyed this book — far more than I thought that I would! I had heard good things about it, but feared that with that title, it would be horribly sweet. Instead, I found it fascinating!
    Hope you had a wonderful, restful trip. Five books in five days is quite a feat! If you have any other recommendations, I’m trying to gather a few books for my trip.

  4. I enjoyed it also. I like how the story evolved. It was almost like peeling an onion. I’ve recommended it several other people.

  5. Kim – I agree with you – this is definitely a book to recommend to many people! It is well written, and treats the subject matter in an nteresting and creative fashion. I read this book a few months ago and loved it. The author did such a great job giving each of the characters a unique “voice”. And the WW II history integrated into the story line was fascinating. We were hoping to visit Guernsey in September, but it didn’t work out with our schedule.
