It's a blue sky golden day here on the Maine coast. My husband and I are going to take a motorcycle ride to visit friends at Lake Sebago so don't know how much reading time I'll have.

What a treasure this book is! I don't think I've ever read such a beautiful book about the Nazi atrocities.

It's a series of letters from some of the inhabitants of Guernsey to a writer in London. They're mainly supposed to write about the Occupation but their daily lives and quirky, wonderful personalities shine through.

I so want to be their friend!

Sounds like a good book. Have fun on your bike ride

Sounds like you have a beautiful day stretched out in front of you, Linda! It promises to be a nice one on my side of the country today as well.

I love books of letters and add to it the Second World War--I'm there! I will have to keep my eye out for this one.

I hope you have a great week!

Linda, you and your husband have a wonderful day-sure sounds like something nice to do on a beautiful day.

I have heard so many good things about this book. I have it on reserve at the library but may end up being bad and buying it instead.

This looks like a wonderful book. I'm anxious to read it.
