January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and 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 the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb…. As Juliet and Dawsey Adams exchange letters, she learns about the unique book club formed as an alibi to protect its members from arrest by Germans who occupied the island. This charming novel by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer spent months on the best-seller list.
