The Diary

The Diary - Eileen Goudge As Elizabeth’s two grown daughters are clearing out her house they come upon a diary their mother kept as a young woman. Knowing they probably should not read it, curiosity gets the better of them and they delve into their mother’s past. Soon enough the work around them is forgotten as their mother’s words transport them (and the reader) back to 1951. Discovering that their mother had a “love of her life” that apparently was not their father comes as a shock. Who was this mystery man their mother had fallen head over heals for?

This was a good, fast read. Very enjoyable and, an interesting surprise in the last few pages.
