I just finished the book--could hardly put it down! Another winning story from Anne with history, romance and intrigue. I get so involved with the characters in each book. I love how she brings back characters from earlier books and folds them into the current plot. This book is really two stories entwined from different periods of time. The Occupation must have been horrid and must never be forgotten as Anne brings in history and landmarks from Guernsey. I feel like I am back at the island while reading them. I even pull out my map! I highly recommend the entire series of Guernsey Novels. I am already looking forward to her next book.
