A great story from a great find in a steamer trunk!
I came across this title when I finished The Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel. I liked her writing and wanted to read more. This one immediately appealed to me due to the diary aspect. I'm a genealogist and always wish I could put a human life with the written facts - birthdate, death date, etc. What a wonderful gift to find the diary's writer still living vibrantly! In my late teens, I burned my own adolescent 5 yr diary, and the journals we had to keep in high school journalism class. How I wish I had those today... but alas, back then, I didn't want anyone to know my innermost thoughts and feelings. I'm sure they would be quite laughable now.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and when I found it on Audible, I listened/reread it again!
Thought: How will I feel and reflect back on my life when I am 90? Will I have lived the life I imagined? How about you?
