One thought on “Guernsey: Rachel's Story

  1. Elizabeth

    An excellent book about the rescue of one young Jewish girl who was imprisoned on the island of Alderney in WWII She was rescued by a teenaged fisherman from Guernsey It s the story of her rescue, and then moves to the 1970 s when she learns she owns the factory her parents owned prior to the war It had been stolen by a German soldier, and has become an international pharmaceutical producer Lots of intrigue.

  2. Toni

    Oh my, if this had not been about Guernsey Island I would not have been able to finish it This was probably one of the most poorly written books I have read in a very long time He had a pretty good idea for a story but just mucked it up with fantastical, unbelievable plot lines and just plain not good writing

  3. Linda Thompson

    Interesting StoryI found the story interesting, if a bit simplistically written, but my reading was spoiled by the number of typos, which a good proof reader could have sorted out.

  4. Shelley

    Picked it up for Kindle, and was enjoying it until the last quarter, when the author just seemed to lose the thread It was almost a good book Part 3 stopped that from happening, the romantic interlude and villain s redemption was completely implausible The author had such a fascinating time and place to work with, and didn t make the most of it too much attention to names of beaches, coves and streams I d previously read Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society and with it, I felt I could see t [...]

  5. Sam

    Guernsey Rachel s Story contains Rachel s Shoe and The Causeway which are two books that are also available separately.The novel starts during The Second World War and is set in the Channel Islands, I thought it was very good at the beginning and was pleased as this was another Kindle book that I managed to grab when it was free However, after that it did go downhill, and indeed the second part The Causeway was full of far fetched storylines, unbelievable coincidences and poorly written love sce [...]

  6. Aunty Janet

    Two previous novels have been combined along with some linking chapters to create this book.The first part of the book starts with Nazi persecution of Jewish people and the occupation of the Channel Isles.The final section is set in the 1970s, again in the Channel Islands I enjoyed parts of the story, the first part than the rest, which I found rather slow in places and rather far fetched in others.Nevertheless I liked the story, especially the setting and descriptions of the beautiful islands, [...]

  7. Emma

    I enjoyed the beginning of this book and liked the idea of the story but found the writing a bit clumsy and kept stating things and reminding the right reader of things that had happened which was irritating The ending, although almost romantic was unbelievable and not written nicely at all Wouldn t recommend.

  8. kathleen

    Stiff dialogue, dialogue should flow Writing should sound like real speech but this just was not believable and quite painful to read Who uses the word Whilst Whilst he slept on upstairs Monty and the Le Bretons took stock of the situation Storyline is fine but the writing needs help.

  9. Kaye

    Freebie self pub with a lot of of grammatical mistakes Story ok but ending most implausible Liked most of the characters felt they were well done Could have been shorter some of the action in the latter part of book dragged Enough is enough Should be 2 1 2

  10. Jack

    An interesting and carefully thought out plot, a moving story But the writing style was rather dull, as it got rather silly towards the end.

  11. AnnMarie

    I was really enjoying this book but the last 1 4 took a goofy turn that just kind of ruined it for me which is why I only gave it a 3.

  12. Jenn

    Great time filler, story was slow at some points and a few gaps in detail but enjoyed the writing style of the author.
