Description
Summary:For the many thousands of fans who have been nourished by May Sarton's words over the years, this last journal by the beloved Maine poet/writer will be very special. May Sarton died on July 16, 1995, just a few months after she finished this pilgrimage through her 82nd year. Over the two decades since she published Journal of a Solitude, Sarton's journals have been eagerly awaited, markers of daily events, feelings, and responses to the world around her house-by-the-sea. In this last journal, Sarton continues to adjust to the feeling that she is a stranger in the land of old age. And though her struggles and daily setbacks continue, there is an optimistic, musing tone as she contemplates this unique time in a person's life.
