Haiku Review: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society


Mad Martha with you again for another Haiku Review!  I have decided that I will save my HRs for books that I consider special. Stand-outs in their genre, if you will.  Today’s pick, by Mary Ann Schaffer and Annie Barrows, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, is, quite simply, a book that deserves to be remembered and re-read.  A fictional tale comprised of  correspondence between author and lass-about-town, Juliet Ashton, and a wide array of her friends, acquaintances and on occasion, enemies, the story roams through the lives of those living on the island of Guernsey during the German occupation in World War 2.  You will not regret reading it, I assure you.  So without further ado, here is Mad Martha’s (that is to say, my own) SECOND Haiku review:

Friendship unfolding,

like creases in a letter.

Writers block resolved!

Adieu, my friends,

Mad Martha
