The Girl from the Channel Islands just broke my heart AND somehow gave me all the feel goods inside

My initial thoughts posted to Goodreads immediately after finishing The Girl from the Channel Islands: Normally, I would take some time, collect my thoughts and the broken pieces of my heart from the floor and THEN sit down to type out all the thoughts swirling around in my brain so you all would be able […]
