Lily James as Juliet Ashton in Guernsey
Set in 1946, the story follows a free-spirited journalist, Juliet Ashton, played by Lily James, who travels to Guernsey to find out more about the curiously named book club that was formed during the German Occupation. The book uncovers the fascinating history of Guernsey under German rule, its subsequent Liberation and the resilience of the islanders over that time whilst following the protagonists’ own love story.
The virtual Heritage75 festival takes place this weekend (8th-10th May 2020) and the full programme of events can be found here: visitguernsey.com/see-and-do/events-festivals/virtual-heritage75/
