Juliet Ashton, a writer in 1946 London, is surprised to receive a letter from a man who read a second-hand book inscribed with her name and address. A resident of Guernsey (one of the Channel Islands), he tells Juliet how an impromptu book club helped him and his friends cope with the horrific German occupation during WWII. Written as a series of letters between Juliet and her pen pals from the island, this charming read celebrates how the written word – and friendship – can provide light during dark times. 

Perfect for:

  • Readers of charming, witty novels.
