Attention all: The Guernsey Literary and potato Peel pie society has come to order!

The we had our Literary meeting at Katrina's cute house yesterday, and boy, was it Baby central. We had Marilyn's, Libby's, Mine and surprise... Aileen brought her brand new twins. They were so adorable and cute and tiny and everything else adorable. We all loved having them.
Aside from the baby fun, we had amazing food. Briony roasted pork tenderloin and made parmesan asparagus couscous. Lydia brought homemade Jams and applesauce and Katrina made delicious chocolate chip cookies. We were eating like Kings, probably like the Guernsey literary society themselves that great day. No Germans, you can't have any.
We all thoroughly enjoyed this book. As we talked about the style of writing, our favorite characters, and of course the love plot. We overall connected very well to the small town islanders of Guernsey and felt, like Juliet, at home with them. Our hearts broke with each story from their experiences during the occupation and were sad for the loss of a main character. I believe the story was an overall heart warming success. Thank you all so much for your participation.
