TGLAPPPS is set just after World War 2, when author Juliet Ashton begins a correspondence with a man on Guernsey Island after he spies her name on a second hand book they both enjoyed. Juliet is so delighted that she not only writes with Dawsey, but soon other Guernsey Island inhabitants; soon she is plotting a book based on the WW2 occupation of the island by the Germans. When this idea entails a trip to the island, Juliet becomes even more immersed in the people and culture. But will she stay?
Told in epistolary style, this book is just a delight. I loved the characters and Juliet in particular. The pages fairly flew because I needed to know what would occur next. My only complaint was that it took me nearly 50 pages to begin to get the correspondents straight--I kept having to check back to see who was whom. But that's a small price to pay for such a delightful read, and characters I will think about for a very long time.
