Publisher's Summary

A New York Times number-one best seller. It's 1946 and author Juliet Ashton can't think of 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, Juliet's curiousity 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 Geurnsey under the German Occupation, Juliet soon realises that the society is every bit as extraordinary as its name.

A thoroughly enjoyable listen.

This works really well as an audiobook. I had already listened to, and enjoyed, the radio 4 book of the week version, but this unabridged version is better. Using different voices to read each letter means that you never get confused over who wrote each one.

Very enjoyable and compelling novel

A very good novel and totally unexpected in its charm and beautiful flowing storyline. The whole book is based around numerous short letters between Juliet Ashton, an established author, and various people; mainly those living in the post World War 2 island of Guernsey.

The mysterious book title 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society' is quickly explained when various members of the society start their correspondence with Juliet. From there Juliet decides to visit the island and ends up falling in love with the island and its occupants. Juliet is also torn between the affections of 2 men, but which one will it be?

All in all a very enjoyable read and can thoroughly recommend this
