She gets a letter from a man living on Guernsey Island which is occupied by the Germans during World War Two. He has found her name and address inside a book and writes to her. She is charmed by his letter and gradually they develop a relationship by correspondence and she learns about the history of the island during the war. Some other residents also write and it is while she is in the throes of a new relationship that she decides to at last visit Guernsey Island and meet her new friends.
The ensuing events are told with a light, humorous and moving style. I enjoyed this book very much and recommend it for someone who is looking for a good, easy and historical read.
