The Book of Ebenezer Le Page by G.B. Edwards

Since we loved the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society so much, this remarkable work of fiction might interest you as well. Each of the main English Channel Islands—Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Herm, and Sark—has a definite character of its own. The book marvelously conveys the atmosphere and speech patterns of Guernsey. Ebenezer was born on Guernsey in about 1880 and lived there until the 1960s; his “book” introduces us to his family, his friends, his neighbors, and to Liza Queripel, the love of his life. He paints a vivid picture of their lives, introducing the period of German occupation during WWII.
