Boxset No. 1 includes: Book 1: Dangerous Waters Book 2: Finding Mother Book 3: Guernsey Retreat "I regard Anne Allen’s Guernsey novels as an indulgent treat: they’re seriously easy to read, with some great characters and a brilliant island location which is used to full advantage: you really feel as though you’re there.
