For the reader in you.

My delightful escape from the realities of March:
I have finished my very enjoyable book for this month. I feel like I'm saying good-bye to some dear friends, and will miss them. Two of my very favorite things: writing letters and reading, play a very big part in how this book is written, and how it evolves. Another WWII era story, taking place mainly on the island of Guernsey, in the channel islands, including some fascinating facts about the way the people in these islands endured the occupation. A witty, intelligent main character with a bit of a rebellious streak endeared me to the narration of a life I wanted to believe was not a work of fiction. I laughed, I sighed, I almost cried. Five stars. Now I can get on with the rest of my month.
