I read the Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society book a while back and loved it. I found out they'd made a movie of it and found it on Netflix on Sunday. It was so good!
Here is the book cover. It's about a writer who learns about how a group of people struggled through the German occupation of the island of Guernsey during WW II. She visits the island to learn more. The book and movie tell about what she finds.
One of our favorite English actresses plays the lead in the movie, Lily James. The farmer on the island is played by Michiel Huisman.
I tried to snap photos of some of the grander scenery in the movie and was always too late. LOL!
I absolutely LOVED the period designs of the sets, the clothes, the cottages, the items in the sets, all antique.
If there is any chance of you watching this movie, I can guarantee you will love it.
And I loved the ending!! Do let me know if you read the book and what you thought of it, and if you've seen the movie.
Travis worked on clearing out more things in the barn that we don't need, note the dumpster in front of the barn. He brought out our two old goat milking stands that Dayle built painted white, and I embellished. We took them to the county fair when we showed our goats and also used them for years at home in my milking room. A stainless steel bowl of COB (corn, oats and barley) was placed in the hole and they ate it while we milked them. Morning and night for years and years. I put a photo of them in the Corbett Group on Facebook - free - and within the hour a young woman came to pick them up. Sigh. The end of an era. Poof. Gone.
I passed some time on the deck enjoying the flowers before the cold and winter takes them away.
I'm now reading a Debbie Macomber book, "The Shop on Blossom Street". I'm finding it a bit depressing and predictable. I did a search for "books similar to Rosamund Pilcher" and am going to try "Indian Summer" by Marcia Willett and "Circle of Friends" by Maeve Binchy - both are downloaded onto my iPad. Any good book recommendations? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
