  1. I’m still disappointed—and surprised—it didn’t get a big screen release! And even while it wasn’t shot in Guernsey, it does make me want to visit there. Glad you enjoyed it.

  2. I enjoyed the book about ten years ago and I’d love to see this movie! I probably would have gone to see it in the theater if it had been released in the US. Brag moment: I met Annie Barrows once and have a photo of my star-struck daughter with her (Barrows also wrote the Ivy and Bean books for kids).

  3. I’ve had the book on my shelf for what seems like forever – but it always had to wait for that ‘free’ moment -but I had such a ‘morning’ in all the bad ways on Monday that retreat was the best option -so I watched the film – and adored it- the setting, the sense of ‘community’ and ‘the secret that wasn’t’… I’m hoping to read the book that’s been calling to me from the shelf soon

  4. I loved the book and thought the movie was just okay. I think it’s one of those movies where if you haven’t read the book you like it and if you have you’re disappointed
