What you need to know before your trail

One family, divided by death – and money Andy Batiste, at loggerheads with his degenerate cousin, seeks to discover the truth of his family history. Why was his pregnant grandmother forced to flee to France? What really happened to her husband during the German Occupation, sixty years ago? Who accused Edmund, the elder son and Batiste heir, of being an informer? Was he really a traitor – and who murdered him? With Edmund’s brother Harold now head of the family, enjoying the wealth which ought to have come to Andy’s father, the family is forever divided. Andy yearns to clear Edmund’s name and restore his father to his rightful inheritance. Into the conflict comes Charlotte Townsend, newly divorced, lonely and struggling with writer’s block and the consuming threat of impending loss. She returns for healing at Guernsey’s natural health centre, La Folie, and becomes involved in Andy’s family affairs. Together they embark on a hunt for the truth…

Travel Guide


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)
