Last day with my folks and I made the mistake of picking up The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society whilst I was wallowing in the tub.
Cursing the authors, Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, as all I want to do now is curl up for the rest of the day with this book. Normally that would be a good thing, but not on my last day at home with the two people I love most in this world. So why not wait until tomorrow? I can’t. Dad warned me when he saw me pick it up that Mom had yet to read it and as such I could not take it with me. #@%$#^!@%@#$ To make it worse, I have been searching for months for a novel that had the right voice and felt inspirational enough for me to finish my first novel and there is no doubt in my mind that this is it. I really hope that this is not the only novel of the now deceased Mary Anne Shaffer. I’d love to read more of Miss Juliet Ashton and I would really love to read some of her character, Izzy Bickerstaff.
Okay, painfully tearing myself from this delightful book and to the lovelies in my live. Will tear apart the airport bookstores tomorrow in search of this book. Really do need to have my own copy of it on one of my many bookshelves after all.
Love and light,
