Juliet Ash­ton (James) is a free-spir­ited, suc­cess­ful writer liv­ing in post-war Lon­don. De­spite the suc­cess of her re­cent novel, she is strug­gling to find in­spi­ra­tion for her writ­ing after the harsh ex­pe­ri­ences of the war. When she re­ceives an un­ex­pected let­ter from a Guernsey farmer named Dawsey Adams (Michiel Huis­man), Juliet im­pul­sively leaves for Guernsey, where she hopes to write about the cu­ri­ously named book club that Dawsey has writ­ten to her about, formed by his fel­low is­landers un­der the Ger­man oc­cu­pa­tion in WW2. As a life­long bond forms between this un­likely group of friends, Juliet soon re­alises that the so­ci­ety is hid­ing a heart-break­ing se­cret.
