To give them hope she should tell their story
It’s 1946. The war is over, and Juliet Ashton has creator’s block. But when she receives a letter from Dawsey Adams of Guernsey – a total stranger living halfway around the Channel, who has come across her name written in a second hand book – she enters into a correspondence with him, and in time with all of the members of the ordinary Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
Through their letters, the society tell Juliet about life at the island, their love of books – and the long shadow cast by their time living under German occupation. Drawn into their impossible to resist world, Juliet sets sail for the island, changing her life without end.
