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.

The book is well written, engaging and informative. Perhaps Audible is not the best format, as it was not always easy to follow the different letter writers and their voices. I’m afraid I found the performance reading of it appalling, all the wrong emphasis on words till I wanted to scream.
