It is written in letter form and based just after WWII has ended. When one writes in letter form it is slightly more challenging to read, but so much more interesting! Incase any of you read this (and I highly recommend it!) I won’t give too much away other than to say it does involve a move from the mainland to the isle of Guernsey. Two very different cultures. It also challenged my views of ‘typical writing styles’.
My dear friend and mentor, Naomi, recommended it to me and it was good enough that when/if we manage a summer vacation this year I want to take it with me again! That says a lot in my book.
