A correspondence begins between Juliet Ashton and members of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, with them sharing their experiences of Nazi Occupied Guernsey. When an idea for a book catches Juliet she goes to visit the island, making lifelong friends and taking life changing steps along the way. This book is told by way of letters and as the reader, you become enchanted by the writers of them and the love Juliet comes to feel for each of the Islanders; Dawsey, Amelia, Isola, Eben, Kit and Elizabeth. A beautiful story of love, friendship and the sadness of friends lost.Written by

Our Friday night book club became a refuge to us. A private freedom to feel the world growing darker all around you, but you only need a candle to see new worlds unfold. That is what we found in our society.

I loved this film!! Having read the book and it being one of my all time favourite books I was a little wary of the film, as they often don't do the book justice. However, this is an exception! I thought it was beautifully made and the casting was brilliant with great chemistry between them.
The only thing that did let it down was one of, what I felt, was a larger plot from the book being left out. It would have made it complete to have the ending and how the ending happened stayed more true to book, but it was still a beautiful ending and would highly recommend to anyone!
