It's 1946 and author Juliet Ashton can't think what to write next. Out of the blue, she receives a letter from Dawsey Adams of Guernsey - by chance, he's acquired a book that once belonged to her - and, spurred on by their mutual love of reading, they begin a correspondence.

When Dawsey reveals that he is a member of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, her curiosity is piqued and it's not long before she begins to hear from other members.

As letters fly back and forth with stories of life in Guernsey under the German Occupation, Juliet soon realises that the society is every bit as extraordinary as its name.


A very touching story with a beautiful cover


An endearing read about friendship and love. I loved this book so much I purchased it for a friend, and I almost can't let go of it because this cover is beautiful. The title is in shiny red embossed letters! SHINY RED EMBOSSED! So stunning!

I loved this book. I like to read something original and different and this book is exactly that. I also learned some historical facts that I wasn't aware of previously. Loved the quirky characters too.

Fantastic read!


Characters in this book were very interesting and engaging. The factual elements in the book were also interesting.



Great book


As I was actually born in Guernsey this book was relevant to me and some of the stories my Granny told me. It was recommended to me by one of the residents in the aged care facility I work in. I loved the book and the way it was written, I read it in a couple of days.
