    Janvier 1946. Tandis que Londres se relève douloureusement de la guerre, Juliet, jeune écrivain, cherche un sujet de roman. Comment pourrait-elle imaginer que la lettre d´un inconnu, natif de l´île de Guernesey, va le lui fournir ? Au fil des lettres qu´elle échange avec son nouveau correspondant, Juliet pénètre son monde et celui de ses amis : un étrange club de lecture inventé pour tromper l´occupant allemand, le « Cercle littéraire des amateurs d´épluchures de patates »... Aussi fantasque que son titre, drôle, tendre et incroyablement attachant, ce best-seller est enfin disponible en numérique.
