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

We have to write about them.
I can't. I promised I wouldn't.
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.
I am afraid. What if I am not a good enough writer?
She doubts. She doesn't believe. She craves being taken seriously, but then, she won't do that for herself.

Kidding, this was truly such a hidden gem, someone recommended i watch it and i did, now i can't be more grateful. It's one of those films you find yourself still thinking about days after watching, i find myself tearing up a couple of times throughout the film, which is something i haven't done this entire year. Filled with charming and lovable characters, shot in a beutiful island with beautiful scenery, heartwarming story about love, family and friendship, now i find myself tempted to read the novel just to spend more time with those characters, i feel like a mini series formula would have been better for this adoptation of the novel though, rather than a 2 hours movie which leaves you just wanting more.
Anyway, i highly recommend this if you are tired of all the blockbuster movies like me and just want a simple light hearted movie to enjoy.
