The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a Netflix original movie that premiered on the streaming service in 2018. It’s a must-watch for fans of romance movies on Netflix.

The Netflix movie is based on the book of the same name by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

The movie is set during the 1940s after German-occupied Guernsey, which is a small island off the coast England and France in the English channel. There, the residents are still struggling with life after the occupation. A writer travels to the island to figure out what happened and see what life was like. Unexpected romance begins to form.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I really enjoyed it. The movie has an awesome cast with Lily James and Michiel Huisman, who many Netflix viewers will recognize from The Haunting of Hill House, which is one of the best Netflix shows to date.
