The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer,Annie Barrows Book Summary:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A NETFLIX FILM • A remarkable tale of the island of Guernsey during the German Occupation, and of a society as extraordinary as its name. “Treat yourself to this book, please—I can’t recommend it highly enough.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love “I wonder how the book got to Guernsey? Perhaps there is some sort of secret homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers.” January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she’s never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb. . . . As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends—and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society—born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island—boasts a charming, funny, deeply human cast of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature lovers all. Juliet begins a remarkable correspondence with the society’s members, learning about their island, their taste in books, and the impact the recent German occupation has had on their lives. Captivated by their stories, she sets sail for Guernsey, and what she finds will change her forever. Written with warmth and humor as a series of letters, this novel is a celebration of the written word in all its guises and of finding connection in the most surprising ways. Praise for The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society “A jewel . . . Poignant and keenly observed, Guernsey is a small masterpiece about love, war, and the immeasurable sustenance to be found in good books and good friends.”—People “A book-lover’s delight, an implicit and sometimes explicit paean to all things literary.”—Chicago Sun-Times “A sparkling epistolary novel radiating wit, lightly worn erudition and written with great assurance and aplomb.”—The Sunday Times (London) “Cooked perfectly à point: subtle and elegant in flavour, yet emotionally satisfying to the finish.”—The Times (London)

Miri is the non-twin child in a family with two sets of them--older brothers and younger sisters.

But when Miri gets sent to her room after accidentally bashing her big brother on the head with a shovel, she finds herself in the same room . . . only not quite.

Turning

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Turning by Jessica J. Lee Book Summary:

'The water slips over me like cool silk. The intimacy of touch uninhibited, rising around my legs, over my waist, up to my collarbone. When I throw back my head and relax, the lake runs into my ears. The sound of it is a muffled roar, the vibration of the body amplified by water, every sound felt as if in slow motion . . .' Summer swimming . . . but Jessica Lee - Canadian, Chinese and British - swims through all four seasons and especially loves the winter. 'I long for the ice. The sharp cut of freezing water on my feet. The immeasurable black of the lake at its coldest. Swimming then means cold, and pain, and elation.' At the age of twenty-eight, Jessica Lee, who grew up in Canada and lived in London, finds herself in Berlin. Alone. Lonely, with lowered spirits thanks to some family history and a broken heart, she is there, ostensibly, to write a thesis. And though that is what she does daily, what increasingly occupies her is swimming. So she makes a decision that she believes will win her back her confidence and independence: she will swim fifty-two of the lakes around Berlin, no matter what the weather or season. She is aware that this particular landscape is not without its own ghosts and history. This is the story of a beautiful obsession: of the thrill of a still, turquoise lake, of cracking the ice before submerging, of floating under blue skies, of tangled weeds and murkiness, of cool, fresh, spring swimming - of facing past fears of near drowning and of breaking free. When she completes her year of swimming Jessica finds she has new strength, and she has also found friends and has gained some understanding of how the landscape both haunts and holds us. This book is for everyone who loves swimming, who wishes they could push themselves beyond caution, who understands the deep pleasure of using their body's strength, who knows what it is to allow oneself to abandon all thought and float home to the surface.

Finding Mother

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Finding Mother by Anne Allen Book Summary:

“Prepare to be swept away by a heart-warming tale of family relationships and love.” Reader This romantic drama is the second of The Guernsey Novels, a series of stand-alone books by the award-winning author Anne Allen. It will appeal to fans of the best-selling novel The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Three women. Three generations. Sacrifices for love… Who is she really? Nicole is about to find out as she searches for her real mother; the woman who gave her away at birth. With her marriage in tatters, she sets out from England: travelling to Spain, Jersey and Guernsey before the extraordinary story of her real family is finally revealed. Nicole becomes an unwitting catalyst for change in that family. Two women are forced to reveal long-buried secrets. One going back as far as the Second World War. Lives are transformed as choices have to be made and the past laid to rest… Book reviews "A sensitive, heartfelt novel about family relationships, identity, adoption, second chances at love… With romance, weddings, boat trips, lovely gardens and more, Finding Mother is a dazzle of a book, a perfect holiday read." Lindsay Townsend, author of The Snow Bride. "I first encountered Anne Allen when I read Dangerous Waters: Mystery, Loss and Love on the Island of Guernsey and if you've read that book you'll notice a glancing reference to Jeanne, the heroine, in Finding Mother. I felt nicely grounded! In much the same way that Allen wormed Jeanne into my heart, I really found that I cared for Nicole and willing her on to make the right decisions and a success of her life. Allen has a real talent for her female characters. The men don't come off the page quite as well, but that's a minor quibble. Tracing a birth parent when you've been adopted is a sensitive subject and Allen handles it well, recognising the insecurities of the adopting parents who wonder if they're going to be supplanted and the worries of the mother who gave up the child soon after her birth. Will she be judged for her relationship with the child's father and for the fact that she made no attempt to bring the child up herself? There's an added complication here in that Nicole will also find out about her birth father - giving her more parents than any girl should decently want! It's neatly, elegantly done and the story is a real page-turner." The Bookbag **** The Guernsey Novels will appeal to lovers of the works of Joanna Trollope, Maeve Binchy, and the best-selling book The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Nothing

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Nothing by Annie Barrows Book Summary:

From Annie Barrows, the acclaimed #1 New York Times–bestselling coauthor of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and the author of the award-winning and bestselling Ivy + Bean books, this teen debut tells the story of Charlotte and Frankie, two high school students and best friends who don’t have magical powers, fight aliens, crash their cars, get pierced, or discover they are royal. They just go to school. And live at home. With their parents. A great read for fans of Becky Albertalli, Louise Rennison, and Adi Alsaid. Nothing ever happens to Charlotte and Frankie. Their lives are nothing like the lives of the girls they read about in their YA novels. They don’t have flowing red hair, and hot romantic encounters never happen—let alone meeting a true soul mate. They just go to high school and live at home with their parents, who are pretty normal, all things considered. But when Charlotte decides to write down everything that happens during their sophomore year—to prove that nothing happens and there is no plot or character development in real life—she’s surprised to find that being fifteen isn’t as boring as she thought. It’s weird, heartbreaking, silly, and complicated. And maybe, just perfect.

Parkland

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Parkland by Dave Cullen Book Summary:

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER On the first anniversary of the events at Parkland, the acclaimed, New York Times bestselling author of Columbine offers an intimate, deeply moving account of the extraordinary teenage survivors who became activists and pushed back against the NRA and feckless Congressional leaders--inspiring millions of Americans to join their grassroots #neveragain movement. Nineteen years ago, Dave Cullen was among the first to arrive at Columbine High, even before most of the SWAT teams went in. While writing his acclaimed account of the tragedy, he suffered two bouts of secondary PTSD. He covered all the later tragedies from a distance, working with a cadre of experts cultivated from academia and the FBI, but swore he would never return to the scene of a ghastly crime. But in March 2018, Cullen went to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School because something radically different was happening. In nearly twenty years witnessing the mass shootings epidemic escalate, he was stunned and awed by the courage, anger, and conviction of the high school's students. Refusing to allow adults and the media to shape their story, these remarkable adolescents took control, using their grief as a catalyst for change, transforming tragedy into a movement of astonishing hope that has galvanized a nation. Cullen unfolds the story of Parkland through the voices of key participants whose diverse personalities and outlooks comprise every facet of the movement. Instead of taking us into the minds of the killer, he takes us into the hearts of the Douglas students as they cope with the common concerns of high school students everywhere--awaiting college acceptance letters, studying for mid-term exams, competing against their athletic rivals, putting together the yearbook, staging the musical Spring Awakening, enjoying prom and graduation--while moving forward from a horrific event that has altered them forever. Deeply researched and beautifully told, Parkland is an in-depth examination of this pivotal moment in American culture--and an up-close portrait that reveals what these extraordinary young people are like as kids. As it celebrates the passion of these astonishing students who are making history, this spellbinding book is an inspiring call to action for lasting change.

A Dissertation upon Roast Pig

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Dissertation upon Roast Pig by Charles Lamb Book Summary:

A Dissertation upon Roast Pig This book include Charles Lamb’s biography and his works. A Dissertation Upon Roast Pig is a collection of food-related essays from the early 19th century, with a humorous bent. They're but a few pages each - a light read to bring a smile to your face, then on to the next little foodie treat. Charles Lamb's writing is playful and amusing. He'll have you chuckling away at his creation myth for the titular roast pig, then set your mouth watering with an enticing description of its succulence. It's not quite all-out food porn, but I would quite like some crackling, even though I'm full right now. Food might be the broad umbrella under which all his essays find themselves, but there's nothing samey about any of the offerings, whether it be the hungry chimney sweeps, metaphors of London fogs as food, or a pun-heavy conceit of the days of the year all coming to a feast. The only possible criticism is one that often applies to collections of essays or short stories: that it's all very well done and a pleasant read, but it's never quite substantial enough to really get your teeth into. Each piece does everything they set out to do - they're clever, engaging and evocative - but they're not so roaringly funny that you'll grab the nearest person and insist they read it, or delve into deep deep food fantasies. There's a sense of Very good. Next? Wonderful as a light snack, but lacking slightly as a main meal. Beyond the format (and that's not something that you'd want to change anyway), there's nothing to knock in 'A Dissertation Upon Roast Pig. It speaks to a modern audience as much as it did to its 19th century audience. Such is the quality of the writing that there's little to date it; it's as sparkling as it ever was. Timeless humour is particularly difficult to achieve, and this is greatly to Lamb's credit. If you're looking for a high quality yet relaxed read, with humour and food woven together, then A Dissertation Upon Roast Pig is an excellent choice. You might not head back for leftovers the next day, but that's by no means the end of the world. Warmly recommended.

Guernsey Vachak Mandal by Maryshaffer Ann Book Summary:

WHEN THE TITLE OF THE BOOK IS SO INTRIGUING, YOU EXPECT A LOT FROM THE BOOK ITSELF. ONCE YOU GET OVER THE INTRIGUE FACTOR OF THE TITLE, YOU FIND THAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT A BOOK CLUB FORMED IN THE TOWN OF GUERNSEY WHICH IS THE ONLY BRITISH LAND OCCUPIED BY THE GERMANS DURING WORLD WAR 2. THE NAME OF THE BOOK CLUB IS 'THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY'. (MY FINGERS ACHE!) THERE IS AN INTERESTING STORY BEHIND WHY THE CLUB WAS NAMED THAT WAY AND I THINK YOU SHOULD READ THE BOOK FOR THAT. THE BOOK STARTS WITH JULIET ASHTON CELEBRATING THE SUCCESS OF HER LATEST BOOK AND SEARCHING FOR A TOPIC FOR HER NEXT BOOK. SHE GETS AN UNEXPECTED LETTER FROM DAWSEY ADAMS FROM GUERNSEY WHO HAS A COPY OF HER OLD AND ABANDONED BOOK "THE SELECTED ESSAYS OF ELIA" BY CHARLES LAMB. DAWSEY CONTACTS HER WISHING TO KNOW WHERE HE CAN FIND MORE BOOKS FROM THE SAME AUTHOR. DAWSEY HAPPENS TO BE A MEMBER OF THE BOOK CLUB AND THUS STARTS JULIET'S INTERACTION WITH THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE BOOK CLUB. JULIET FINDS THE CLUB AND ITS SURVIVAL DURING THE OCCUPATION VERY ENGAGING AND DECIDES TO EXPLORE FURTHER IF IT CAN BE TURNED INTO A BOOK. WE SEE JULIET LANDING IN GUERNSEY AND MEETING OTHER PEOPLE ON THE ISLAND TO COLLECT THEIR VERSION OF THE OCCUPATION. THE ENTIRE BOOK IS WRITTEN IN THE FORM OF LETTERS. WE SEE LETTERS BEING EXCHANGED BETWEEN ALL THE CHARACTERS AND THIS GIVES A DIFFERENT STRUCTURE TO THE BOOK. THERE IS NO SINGLE OMNIPOTENT NARRATOR AND EACH CHARACTER TAKES TURN TO NARRATE THE STORY AND THOUGH THIS IS SOME FORM OF OMNIPOTENCE, IT INTRODUCES ITS OWN SET OF COMPLEXITIES. THERE ARE MANY PLACES WHERE A CHARACTER WOULD NOT INCLUDE CERTAIN THINGS IN THE LETTER, BUT SINCE THIS IS INTENDED FOR A READER, THE AUTHOR HAD TO INCLUDE IT. THERE IS A LETTER FROM JULIET TO SIDNEY ABOUT A GIFT THAT HE SENT. DEAR SIDNEY, WHAT AN INSPIRED PRESENT YOU SENT KIT - RED SATIN TAP SHOES COVERED WITH SEQUINS IT'S OBVIOUS THE AUTHOR INCLUDED THIS BECAUSE THERE IS NO OTHER WAY THE READER WOULD HAVE KNOWN WHAT GIFT SIDNEY SENT, BUT IF JULIET WAS ACTUALLY WRITING THIS LETTER, SHE WOULD NOT HAVE INCLUDED THIS DETAIL. SINCE THE MAIN ESSENCE OF THE BOOK IS THE IDEA OF LETTERS BEING SENT BY A GROUP OF PEOPLE IN AN UNKNOWN ISLAND TO A WRITER, I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY THE AUTHOR CHOSE HER ENTIRE BOOK TO BE IN THE FORM OF LETTERS. BUT TACTLESS INCLUSION OF DETAILS LIKE ABOVE (THE AUTHOR COULD HAVE INCLUDED THE DETAIL IN A SMARTER WAY) MAKES YOU CLICK YOUR TONGUE AND DISTRACTS YOU FROM THE STORY. I PERSONALLY FOUND THE STRUCTURE UNAPPEALING. TO KEEP TRACK OF WHO SENT THE LETTER TO WHOM AND WHEN WAS A BIG PROBLEM FOR ME. I HAVE READ SIMILAR STRUCTURED BOOKS BEFORE (WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN), BUT THIS BOOK IS PARTICULARLY TAXING BECAUSE OF THE SHORT LETTERS AND TOO MANY CHARACTERS. AFTER A POINT OF TIME, I WANTED TO SCREAM 'FORGET THE LETTERS, JUST GET ON WITH THE STORY'. CHARACTERS - THERE IS NO DEARTH IN THIS BOOK. THERE ARE CHARACTERS IN ALL FORMS - GENDER, RACE, NATIONALITY, QUIRKS, NATURE, AGE. ONE CHARACTER THAT STOOD OUT FOR ME WAS ELIZABETH MCKENNA. THE IRONY IS SHE DOESN'T APPEAR IN THE BOOK BUT IS ONLY MENTIONED BY THE OTHER CHARACTERS AND THIS ADDS A BIT OF MYSTERY TO HER. ISOLA ALSO SPRINGS TO MY MIND AS AN INTERESTING CHARACTER. THE PROTAGONISTS THOUGH LEAVE A LOT TO BE DESIRED. MARY ANN SHAFFER STARTED WRITING THIS BOOK AND HAD TO ROPE IN HER NIECE ANNIE BARROWS TO COMPLETE IT BECAUSE MARY WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER. SHE DIDN'T LIVE TO CELEBRATE THE SUCCESS OF HER BOOK. IT'S A CHARMING LITTLE BOOK, AS THE ENGLISH WOULD CALL IT, BUT I DIDN'T FIND ANYTHING EXTRAORDINARY IN IT. YES, THERE ARE SOME GOOD THINGS IN THE BOOK, BUT I DON'T THINK YOU WOULD MISS ANYTHING BY NOT READING IT. I WOULDN'T STOP SOMEONE FROM PICKING IT UP, BUT WHY WASTE TIME ON THIS WHEN YOU HAVE BETTER BOOKS TO READ, EH? PS: OSCAR WILDE APPEARS AS A CHARACTER IN THIS BOOK, BUT I CANNOT REVEAL MORE

The Jane Austen Society

The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner Book Summary:

* INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER * "This novel delivers sweet, smart escapism." —People "Fans of The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society will adore The Jane Austen Society... A charming and memorable debut, which reminds us of the universal language of literature and the power of books to unite and heal." —Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Girls of Paris Just after the Second World War, in the small English village of Chawton, an unusual but like-minded group of people band together to attempt something remarkable. One hundred and fifty years ago, Chawton was the final home of Jane Austen, one of England's finest novelists. Now it's home to a few distant relatives and their diminishing estate. With the last bit of Austen's legacy threatened, a group of disparate individuals come together to preserve both Jane Austen's home and her legacy. These people—a laborer, a young widow, the local doctor, and a movie star, among others—could not be more different and yet they are united in their love for the works and words of Austen. As each of them endures their own quiet struggle with loss and trauma, some from the recent war, others from more distant tragedies, they rally together to create the Jane Austen Society. A powerful and moving novel that explores the tragedies and triumphs of life, both large and small, and the universal humanity in us all, Natalie Jenner's The Jane Austen Society is destined to resonate with readers for years to come.

The Silent Boy

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Silent Boy by Lois Lowry Book Summary:

From a Newbery Medal winner, a novel of tragedy and friendship in a turn-of-the-century farm town, “narrated by a perceptive, large–hearted child.”—Kirkus Reviews Katy Thatcher, the bright and curious daughter of the town doctor, was fascinated by her father’s work, and even as a child she knew that she too wanted to be a doctor. She wanted to know about people. Perhaps it was this, her insatiable curiosity, or simply the charm of Jacob’s gentle intimacy with animals large and small, that fueled their friendship. Although Jacob never spoke to her or even looked at her directly, Katy grew to understand him from the moments they spent together quietly singing to the horses. She knew there was meaning in the sounds he made and purpose behind his movements. So when events took an unexpected and tragic turn, it was Katy alone who could unravel the mystery of what had occurred, and why. A two-time recipient of the Newbery Medal, the New York Times-bestselling author of Number the Stars presents a sensitive, moving story of a young girl growing up at the beginning of the twentieth century and the influence of the farm community around her. Through Katy’s eyes, readers can see the human face so often hidden under modern psychological terminology and experience the haunting impact of her friendship with the silent boy. “The author balances humor and generosity with the obstacles and injustice of Katy’s world to depict a complete picture of the turn of the century.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Alice I Have Been

Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin Book Summary:

BONUS: This edition contains an Alice I Have Been discussion guide and an excerpt from Melanie Benjamin's The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb. Few works of literature are as universally beloved as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Now, in this spellbinding historical novel, we meet the young girl whose bright spirit sent her on an unforgettable trip down the rabbit hole–and the grown woman whose story is no less enthralling. But oh my dear, I am tired of being Alice in Wonderland. Does it sound ungrateful? Alice Liddell Hargreaves’s life has been a richly woven tapestry: As a young woman, wife, mother, and widow, she’s experienced intense passion, great privilege, and greater tragedy. But as she nears her eighty-first birthday, she knows that, to the world around her, she is and will always be only “Alice.” Her life was permanently dog-eared at one fateful moment in her tenth year–the golden summer day she urged a grown-up friend to write down one of his fanciful stories. That story, a wild tale of rabbits, queens, and a precocious young child, becomes a sensation the world over. Its author, a shy, stuttering Oxford professor, does more than immortalize Alice–he changes her life forever. But even he cannot stop time, as much as he might like to. And as Alice’s childhood slips away, a peacetime of glittering balls and royal romances gives way to the urgent tide of war. For Alice, the stakes could not be higher, for she is the mother of three grown sons, soldiers all. Yet even as she stands to lose everything she treasures, one part of her will always be the determined, undaunted Alice of the story, who discovered that life beyond the rabbit hole was an astonishing journey. A love story and a literary mystery, Alice I Have Been brilliantly blends fact and fiction to capture the passionate spirit of a woman who was truly worthy of her fictional alter ego, in a world as captivating as the Wonderland only she could inspire.
