The beloved, life-affirming international bestseller which has sold over 5 million copies worldwide — now a major film starring Lily James, Matthew Goode, Jessica Brown Findlay, Tom Courtenay and Penelope Wilton

To give them hope she must tell their story.

It's 1946. The war is over, and Juliet Ashton has writer's block. But when she receives a letter from Dawsey Adams of Guernsey — a total stranger living halfway across 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 the members of the extraordinary Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
Through their letters, the society tell Juliet about life on the island, their love of books — and the long shadow cast by their time living under German occupation. Drawn into their irresistible world, Juliet sets sail for the island, changing her life forever.

Было так жаль, что книжка закончилась. Добрая, светлая, смешная и читается на одном дыхании, как и правда чужие письма:) советую всем, что любит ‘Жареные зеленые помидоры в кафе ‘Полустанок’, по уровню душевности это с одной полки :)

It has a brand of charm even though it deals with the warning, but also what reading means to oeople-I love that . Really enjoyable, a colourful cast of characters led by Dawsey and Juliet . Way better than the movie. The story is told via letters, very nice. Love Dawsey , Juliet, Elizabet and the concept.

Me gustó mucho la forma en la que está escrito. Me pareció formidable la forma "tierna" de narrar eventos terribles de la Ocupación alemana durante la WWII, pero es realista. Muy recomendable. La película... no la he visto aún.

manufactured the story on the spot, bless her quick wits and silver tongue.
booksellers really are a special breed. No one in their right mind would take up clerking in a bookstore for the salary, and no one in his right mind would want to own one—the margin of profit is too small. So, it has to be a love of readers and reading that makes them do it—along with first dibs on the new books
But the truth is that I’m gloomy – gloomier than I ever felt during the war. Everything is so broken, Sophie: the roads, the buildings, the people. Especially the people.
