All too soon Olive realises she has made a mistake. Her life changes when she meets Wolfgang, a German officer-however there’s a price to pay. . .

2010. Natalie Ogier returns to Guernsey to escape an abusive relationship – only to be plagued by odd happenings in her beautiful cottage on the site of a derelict and secluded farm. Disturbing dreams, disembodied voices and uncanny visions from the past. She becomes increasingly ill at ease as someone else’s past catches up with her own…

Her only immediate neighbour, Stuart, is the grandson of the original owners, Bill and Olive.

Thrown together in a bid to find out what happened to Olive, can they each survive the repercussions of the past and move on?

Travel Guide

Guernsey

Guernsey is an island in the English Channel just off the coast of Normandy.

It’s well known for beach resorts like Cobo Bay and the rugged coastal cliffs. There’s also a very strong literary link and not just with these novels – the famous Hauteville House is the lavish former home of French writer, Victor Hugo.

There’s also Castle Cornet –  a 13th-century harbor fortification in the capital of St. Peter Port, now contains history and military museums.

German Occupation Museum

A very important museum to visit given the subject matter of the books. The first German aircraft arrived at Guernsey Airport on the 30th June 1940 and this marked the beginning of the Occupation.The island really has a lot to offer. You can take any one of the Guernsey novel books and sit on one of the many beaches. In between chapters, you can even go kayaking or surfboarding. There’s golf for the quieter moments (also good reading spots)
