"I wonder how the book got to Guernsey? Perhaps there is some ì sort of secret homing instinct in books that brings them to their ì perfect readers." January 1946: London is emerging from the ì shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is ì looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she ì would find it in a letter from a man she's never met, a native of ì the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written ì inside a book by Charles Lamb. . . .
As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet ì is drawn into the world of this man and his friends-and what a ì wonderfully eccentric world it is. The Guernsey Literary and ì Potato Peel Pie Society-born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when ì its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans ì occupying their island-boasts a charming, funny, deeply human ì cast of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature ì lovers all.
This is a used book and is in Good condition.
