I have read all the books in this series and I never get bored as they are full of wonderful thoughts of Guernsey, in fact it has prompted me to go there next year and see this beautiful island for myself.
I love the way you get glimpses of previous books but in no way does it spoil your enjoyment as they are all stand alone stories.
This one gives you the history of what it was like in the war for the islanders and how they really struggled, I think as it is blended into the story you find it so interesting. Maybe this is how history should be taught as a book full of dates, wars and recession has never appealed to me but these stories I could read all the time.
I also love anything spiritual and the ghosts in this one are very believable, I would love to meet one! A great book to read coming up to Halloween but to be honest you can read this anytime and you will enjoy it. Part love story mixed in as well so you get a bit of everything in this book. Well done Anne Allen for writing one of the best book series I have read, I am now waiting for the next one.
