Book Review - The Diary by Eileen Goudge

The Diary
Number of Pages - 272

Publisher - Vanguard Press

My Review - 8 out of 10

When two grown daughters discover their mother's diary in her attic, they are stunned to learn her true love was not their father. But is all as it seems? That's the mystery they must unravel as their mother lies near death in a nursing home.

Only the pages of her diary can provide the clues. In a richly detailed journey into the past, we see the young Elizabeth Marshall lose her heart to one man while remaining devoted to another.

The Diary is a love story. It's also the story of a family and the question that all adult children must ask themselves at some point: how well do you really know your parents? The answer just might surprise you.
