Storyline

A correspondence begins between Juliet Ashton (Lily James) and members of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, with them sharing their experiences of Nazi-occupied Guernsey Island. When an idea for a book catches Juliet, she goes to visit the island, making life-long 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 Adams (Michiel Huisman), Amelia Maugery (Penelope Wilton), Isola Pribby (Katherine Parkinson), Eben Ramsey (Sir Tom Courtenay), Kit (Florence Keen), and Elizabeth McKenna (Jessica Brown Findlay). Written by Cathryn McDowell

Goofs

When the parcel containing the manuscript of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society arrives in Guernsey, it is labeled "OHMS". This stands for "On His (Her) Majesty's Service" and is only used for mail sent from UK Government Departments. Since the parcel was posted by Juliet Aston, it would not have been labeled OHMS.

Quotes

Sidney Stark: We have to write about them.
Juliet Ashton: I can't. I promised I wouldn't.
Sidney Stark: I realize that Juliet. But this is your story to tell. As sure as I am sitting here. And you will not be right until you do... Now, Elizabeth for better or worse, couldn't help but follow her heart. You must do the same.
Juliet Ashton: I am afraid. What if I am not a good enough writer?
Sidney Stark: She doubts. She doesn't believe. She craves being taken seriously, but then, she won't do that for herself.
