Favourite Book(s) #26 – The Guernsey Novels by Anne Allen

This is a great fabulous series by author, Anne Allen who lives in Devon. Her  series of books are available on Amazon as both physical and Kindle books. The image here shows the first five books and the sixth book in the series was published in October 2017. I certainly hope there will be a seventh book in the series.

The books in order, in case you are like me and have to read in order are:

  1. Dangerous Water
  2. Finding Mother
  3. Guernsey Retreat
  4. The Family Divided
  5. Echoes of Time
  6. The Betrayal

All the books can be read as standalone books, but have the central characters the same with each book focusing on a different central character or two. I heard Anne speak at my local library in the summer of 2016. During that time she did a short reading and chatted about her journey before she became an author and why she selected Guernsey as the setting for her series.

The books are set in the modern time, but with flashes back to the days of the Occupation of the island during the Second World War. I truly enjoy them. I borrowed the first four books from the library, but actually own a full set as Kindle books because they are like trusty friends and I have read them all more than once!
