    A fascinating story!

    Tess inherits a house on the island of Guernsey from her Aunt Doris at a turning point in her life. She loves her career as a GP, but recent events have caused her to rethink her future and yearn for the island where she spent much of her childhood. The house is in terrible shape but friends on the island refer her to Jack, a building contractor. Tess soon discovers that there is more to like about Jack than just his remodeling skills. While Tess is getting used to her new job on the island and waiting for her home to be livable she pursues her late aunt’s lifelong research into her family’s connection to Victor Hugo with Eugenie, one of her ancestors from the 1800’s, who owned the house Tess inherited. I really enjoyed the way the author intertwined Eugenie’s history with Tess’s present. The story has romance, good historical reference and characters, and an interesting plot. It was a tale of love and friendship and gave a realistic portrayal of life for women in the 1800’s as well as similarities to their lives today.

    Guernsey

    I have read all of the Guernsey Novels, and I just couldn't put this one down, Anne has taught me a lot about the Island. To anybody wanting a set of stories which are all different. The people in each story appears at sometime in the other books, to me this gives an eatra edge to other books, its like meeting you own family. I just can't wait for the next book Please.

    The Inheritance

    A delightful book. Well written with well developed characters. The references to Victor Hugo and his story were well incorporated to provide a delightful novel which was both entertaining and informative.

    Outstanding

    What an amazing story. Tess inherits a house on the island, but discovers that there is a lot more work to be done. She’s referred to Robert and the results are interesting. Loved it
