January 1946 and writer Juliet Ashton receives a letter from a man in Guernsey, who has found her name written inside a book. As they exchange letters, she is drawn into the eccentric world of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, which boasts a charming cast of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature lovers all. Captivated by their stories, she sets sail for Guernsey, and what she finds will change her forever.

What a novel way to tell a difficult story of the aftermath of war and the extraordinary people that lived through the horror. Their perspectives and resilience, their deep courage and determination - a beautifully written and read story of ordinary people doing the extraordinary work of life.
