It’s 1946. The war is over, and Juliet Ashton has writer’s block. But when she receives a letter from Dawsey Adams of Guernsey – a total stranger living halfway across the Channel, who has come across her name written in a second-hand book – she enters into a correspondence with him, and in time with all the members of the extraordinary Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
At the beginning of the film the Nazis are shown confiscating pigs from a farm on Guernsey leaving the farmer to just go potatoes. Jersey royals grown on the neighbouring island are famous globally, I wondered whether the history of growing potatoes on the Channel Iskands stemmed back to being forced to grow them by Nazis. 35 more words
Interesting a series of books set in similar time to Geurnsey potato pie, when Island occupies by Nazis.
