Set in 1946, a London based writer forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island in the aftermath of World War II.  They write about events that occured during the German occupation of the island.  She then decides to write a book about their experiences during the war.

This correspondence begins between Juliet Ashton and members of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, with them sharing their experiences of Nazi Occupied Guernsey.  When an idea for a book catches Juliet she goes to visit the island, making lifelong friends and taking life changing steps along the way.

In the book the story 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. 

And the unusual name?  In 1941, a group of four Guernsey residents are walking at nighttime in occupied Guernsey.  They are stopped by a German patrol for breaching curfew.  When asked for their reason, one of the women notices a book in the pocket of one of the Germans and says that they were at a book group.  Collectively, they make up the book group's name, the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and so mamage to avoid arrest.
