The Society was born one night in German-occupied Guernsey as a ruse
created on the spot to escape punishment for breaking curfew. Its history
is told in an exchange of letters between its members and a writer who
finds the topic a promising one for her next book. The resulting tale is
one of the most charming this reviewer has read in a long time. Through
the unique vehicle of personal correspondence, the writers present an
amazing mix of eccentric and heroic characters in a story ranging from
hilarious to tragic. No book lover should miss this one.
