I loved the book "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society." I don't have time to give this book the critique it deserves. It suffices to say that it is one of my new favorite books. I'll share a couple of my favorite quotes.
I love this first quote because of the wonderful imagery. "Your questions regarding that gentleman are very delicate, very subtle, very much like being smacked in the head with a mallet. Am I in love with him? What kind of a question is that? It's a tuba among the flutes, and I expect better of you. The first rule of snooping is to come at it sideways..."
I'm sure we all know someone like this... "Isola says she is a blight because she likes being a blight - it gives her a sense of destiny."
I often feel like the heroine who says, "My worries travel about my head on their well-worn path, and it is a relief to put them on paper."
Lastly, I identified with the following quote because of my short courtship with Doug. (Seven weeks from first date to married.) But, I believe that family life IS a great adventure. "Is it unseemly to get married so quickly? I don't want to wait - I want to begin at once. All my life I thought that the story was over when the hero and heroine were safely engaged - after all, what's good enough for Jane Austen ought to be good enough for anyone. But it's a lie. The story is about to begin, and every day will be a new piece of the plot. Perhaps my next book will be about a fascinating married couple and all the things they learn about one another over time."
