The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society: Part 1: 31 Mar, 1946 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Juliet writes to Sidney and Piers and includes copies of all the letters she's received from Guernsey. She says she's in love with Dawsey and Eben, wants Amelia to adopt her, and would like to adopt Isola. She writes that she spends all her time waiting for the post to come and asks Sidney if he thinks there's enough material in the letters for her next book.
The ways in which Juliet talks about Dawsey, Eben, Amelia, and Isola betray that she already wants to experience familial relationships with them; it's now a matter of fostering their relationships and making that happen.
