The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society is the international best-selling novel by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer that went on to become a successful box office flick, and it’s still proving to be a bestseller on booklists the world over.
Set in London in the 1940s, Juliet, a charismatic and free-spirited writer receives a letter from a member of a mysterious literary club, started in Nazi-occupied Guernsey. Her curiosity piqued, Juliet decides to visit the island. There she meets the delightfully eccentric members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, including Dawsey, the rugged and intriguing farmer who wrote her the letter. As the secrets from their wartime past unfold, Juliet’s growing attachment to the island, the book club and her affections for Dawsey will change the course of her life forever.
