The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society: Part 1: 4 Feb, 1946 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Juliet begins a letter to Markham Reynolds. She explains that she caught his delivery boy and made him reveal Reynolds's address. She thanks him for the flowers and says they've brightened her winter.
The politeness indicates that Juliet isn't going to make it known yet that she felt unsafe because of Mark's advances—she feels the need to be polite.
