Discover the inspiration behind this literary phenomenon and global best-seller.

The novel (and successful film), written by Mary Ann Shaffer, is a heart-warming nostalgic story based in Guernsey at the time of the German occupation during WW2.

Your specialist guide will bring the characters from the book to life. Visit the Jerbourg area of La Bouvee and Calais Lane, where the main characters ‘lived’, and enjoy a walk at South East Cliff Top, where many scenes from the book are set. The landscape is still there, as well as the farm houses where the characters held their literary meetings. 

Your panoramic tour of the island will also include Castle Cornet, Little Chapel, and the bunkers at Pleinmont point, as well as traditional Guernsey Gauche with tea or coffee.
