The story begins in 1946 London, where we meet Juliet Ashton (Lily James), who is looking for something serious about which to write. Flashback sequences reveal that Juliet is working at resolving some of her own past issues. An unexpected letter; a curiously named book club; a remote location and a pig farmer are the triggers that entice her to set sail for Guernsey, leaving behind a book signing tour and an American fiancé (Glen Powell), who has swept her off her feet. Also starring Penelope Wilton, Tom Courtenay and Matthew Goode.
Taken from his monthly piece in The Villages Magazine, this month he contemplates novichok, a short break in Sidmouth and, of course the effects that the summer weather has had upon the farm.
