A word from author Mary Ann Shaffer
“If nothing else, I hope these characters and their story shed some light on the sufferings and strength of the people of the Channel Islands during German Occupation. I hope, too, that my book will illuminate my belief that love of art–be it poetry, storytelling, painting, sculpture, or music–enables people to transcend any barrier man has yet devised”–Mary Ann Shaffer, December 2007 regarding her novel The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
In your opinion, did Shaffer succeed?
