Plot[ edit ] In January , year-old Juliet Ashton embarks on a cross-country tour across England to promote her latest book. Written under her pen-name Izzy Bickerstaff , the book is a compilation of comedic columns she wrote about life during World War II.
Despite the fact that she was initially contracted to write another Izzy Bickerstaff book, Juliet writes to her publisher that she wants to retire the pseudonym. On her tour Juliet is greeted with flowers everywhere from the mysterious Markham V.
Reynolds, Jr. Her best friend and publisher, Sidney, warns Juliet that Mark is a wealthy American trying to establish a publishing empire and looking to poach her. Reynolds makes it clear that he is a fan, and she and Reynolds soon begin dating. Juliet receives a letter from Dawsey Adams, a complete stranger from Guernsey who has come into possession of her copy of Essays of Elia and who wants to know more about the author, Charles Lamb.
Juliet helps to send him further books by Lamb.
After learning that the society began as a cover for residents breaking curfew during the German occupation of Guernsey , Juliet begins a correspondence with several members of the Society, hoping to work them into an article she is writing on the benefits of literature for The Times Literary Supplement.
Mark proposes as Juliet is preparing to leave and she delays giving an answer, not wanting to repeat the error of her previous engagement.
Juliet also learns that Elizabeth McKenna, the Society's beloved founder, was arrested and sent to a prison in France by the Germans and has yet to return home.
The members of the Society are raising her child, Kit, among themselves until Elizabeth returns. As she continues to write to the members of the Society and they to her, Juliet begins to plan a trip to Guernsey to conduct research for a book about the group and their experiences of the war. In Guernsey, Juliet is treated like an old friend and soon helps to watch Kit.
She informs them that Elizabeth is dead, but several members go to see her and encourage her to visit Guernsey with them, to which she eventually agrees. Juliet decides to centre her book on Elizabeth's experiences on Guernsey during the occupation, as told by her friends.
