A runaway New York Times bestseller that was named one of the ten best books of the year by Time and USA Today, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society has captivated readers around the world. Told with warmth and humor in a series of letters, this is a tale of finding connection in the most unexpected places. January 1946: As London emerges from the Second World War, writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she’s never met, a native of Guernsey, the British island once occupied by the Nazis? As Juliet begins a remarkable correspondence, she is drawn into the world of this man and his friends, all members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a book club formed to protect its members from arrest by the Germans. Through their letters, she learns about their island, their taste in books, and the powerful, transformative impact the Occupation has had on their lives. Captivated by their stories, she sets sail for Guernsey. What she finds there will change her forever.

"I just finished reading this book and my gosh it was fantastic!! I started reading it and almost gave up on it. But I decide to keep on reading and I started to fall in love with it. The story was so fascinating and intriguing that is was hard for me to put it down! If you read this book, please tell me your thoughts on it and your favorite part of the book!"
"One of the best books I ever read! It’s endearing, fun and not to be forgotten."
"I had seen the Netflix version multiple times and in my experience, the book is always better. So I read the book and discovered that Netflix took a lot of liberties with the story line. I loved the book so much and was so sad when it ended. I think both the book and movie are different from each other but both wonderful! This book is completely worth the read even if you have seen the movie!"
"It’s my favorite of all time!!"
"My favorite book that I’ve read this year! So much depth & just a sweet story! I loved how each character’s personality came out in their letters & the way the friends wrote about each other."
