About the book
It’s January, 1946, and writer Juliet Ashton sits at her desk, vainly seeking a subject for her next book. Out of the blue, she receives a letter from one Dawsey Adams of Guernsey – by chance, he’s acquired a second hand book that once belonged to Juliet – and, spurred on by their mutual love of Charles Lamb, they begin a correspondence.
Reviewed by Page Turners
This book was highly rated by the group. We learnt a lot about the occupation of Guernsey through the members of the society and we loved the characters and the way that their incredible stories were told in a matter of fact way. The style of the book (in the form of letters) worked very well.
Star rating: ****
