This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book has my heart already. I have enjoyed it from the start. It is about two girls whose mother is in a nursing home and they are selling the house. They are going through the mother's items in the attic when they find a diary. Common enough plot, I know, but it always gets me. The diary contains secrets of a love that the girls never knew about between their mother and another young man, who is not their father.

I can't wait to see how this goes, but I'm really into it already. Fast read. I just want to say that this is one of my new favorite books. It makes you really wonder about the choices you make.

Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan 'Have Lovingly Chosen to Separate' After Nearly 9 Years of Marriage

Favorite parts of this book: p. Other times it's as real as when I cut my finger and it bleeds. That's how it feels: like I'm slowly bleeding to death, only on the inside, where it doesn't show. I think about him all the time. I think about when we kissed and what else I want him to do to me. I'm afraid of what would happen if I were to see him again.

I'm afraid of what might happen if I don't. Why can't I make up my mind one way or the other? Why must I torment myself? She'd been breathlessly anticipating this moment, despite her earlier resolution to nip the affair in the bud, but it caught her by surprise nonetheless--not the kiss but the intensity of it. There was none of the initial tentativeness of last time. AJ laid claim to her with his mouth and hands as though they were already lovers. They went on kissing under the benign, unblinking eye of the moon. When he lowered her onto her back, she was only dimly aware of the grassy turf rising to meet her; she could feel nothing but the sensations that were like slowly winding passage taking her deeper and deeper into a forbidden realm.

Even her body felt unfamiliar, a stranger's yielding to touches that from anyone else would have caused her to shrink in modesty. Elizabeth showed no hesitancy, yet he was acutely aware that it was her first time and was careful to take it slowly. In a way, it was like the first time for him as well. He'd been with other women but no one for whom he's had such strong feelings.

How could he love another when he was filled to the brim with Elizabeth? She was the first thing on his mind when he woke up in the morning and the last thing he thought about before he went to sleep at night His eyes met hers, and she saw the heat burning its way through the ice. At last she understood: He was angry precisely because he did care. Enough to want what was best for her, as opposed to them. But now, after weeks of receiving no word from him other than those few innocuous lines scrawled on the backs of postcards, she'd been left to wonder if he would keep his promise.

The uncertainty, along with the slings and arrows she'd been forced to endure, had weakened her resolve. Had she really known what she'd be in for when she first headed down this road? If she had, would she still have had the courage to speak up in AJ's defense?

She liked to believe she would, but maybe that was just wishful thinking. The fact was, she missed her old life almost as much as she missed AJ and would have done just about anything to get it back.

When Elizabeth Marshall's two grown daughters - Emily and Sarah - discover their mother's old diary stored in her attic, they are stunned to learn that their mother's true love wasn't their father. By reading Elizabeth's private thoughts and feelings about her life, a whole host of questions are kindled in their minds: is all as it seems?

This is the mystery that Emily and Sarah must unravel as they stay up late reading the words penned by Elizabeth so many years ago. Unfortunately, Elizabeth can When Elizabeth Marshall's two grown daughters - Emily and Sarah - discover their mother's old diary stored in her attic, they are stunned to learn that their mother's true love wasn't their father. Unfortunately, Elizabeth can't give her daughters the answers they so desperately seek. After suffering a massive stroke, she now lies mute and near death in a nursing home. Only the pages of her diary can provide clues as to what really happened.

In a richly detailed journey into the past, young Elizabeth Harvey loses her heart to one man while remaining devoted to another. Finally, she must choose between the devoted and steadfast Bob - who represents loyalty and stability Surprisingly, it is Bob who eventually comes to her rescue, forcing Elizabeth to make perhaps the most painful decision of her life The Diary by Eileen Goudge is an intricate love story.

However, it is also the story of the unshakable bond of love between a mother and her daughters. This is actually the third book by Eileen Goudge that I've read, and I must say that in my opinion, she really is an excellent writer. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as I like stories about families; and specifically stories about relationships between mothers and daughters.

I appreciated that Ms. Goudge's characters were so vulnerable - they each really resonated with me, and I found myself sympathizing with all of them. Dec 15, Stacey B. Elizabeth Marshall's grown daughters had no idea their mother's old diary would turn the image of their parent's happy marriage upside down. For upon reading the opening pages, they learn that the love of their mother's life was not their father!

And the desperate-to-know answers to their questions reside with Elizabeth who, after a massive stroke, lies mute and near death in a nursing home. Will pages of her diary provide the truth they seek? It seemed like a really fast read for me because I have never read a large print edition before, so it felt like I was flipping through the pages pretty fast, but then I guess I would have been even if it wasn't a large print book. The story line was very intriguing and kept you wondering what was going to happen next in the mother's diary and how her two daughters were going to react to it.

Reading this book reminds you that everyone has a past, even your own parents. It makes me wonder about the past experiences of my parents before they met. Sep 14, A. Okay, I could get past the well-worn plot line beautiful girl almost engaged to football star boyfriend really loves the bad boy and the tale told through a diary that is only partially a diary.

But I'm sorry, when the last 30 pages is nothing but a recitation of how the story wraps up, I couldn't handle it any more.

California Diaries #15: Ducky Diary Three - Book Review

That was probably the hardest 30 pages I have read in the last year. Goudge has written many books - which I had a hard time believing I even checked to see if this was self publ Okay, I could get past the well-worn plot line beautiful girl almost engaged to football star boyfriend really loves the bad boy and the tale told through a diary that is only partially a diary.

I even checked to see if this was self published. Believe me, I won't be going back for more. The characters were like cardboard. The football star so good that he can forgive anything with just a minor hiccup to vent his anger. The "bad boy" of course isn't bad at all.

And the girl Throwing the daughters in to pull the tale along was totally unnecessary. In fact, they were a distraction. I felt no emotion. I figured out the twist in the story pages before it was revealed And by the end, I kept checking page count to see how much longer I had to suffer through. Although it's relatively clean one or two swear words and a love scene straight from a text book I can't in good conscience recommend this one to anybody.

Don't believe those other 5 star reviews. This was not a romance worth the time it took to read. Sep 20, Tara Chevrestt rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-fiction , arc. I read this in one day. It was a short and simple read but pleasurable. It is not a "buxom beauty ravished by Fabio" type love story either, but a clean, sweet telling of a romantic tale that takes place in the s. The book opens with Emily and Sarah going thru their mother's things as their mother lies in the hospital suffering from stroke and old age.

They find their mother's diary and upon reading a few pages, they cannot put it down. Thus, thru their mother's words, they enter the world o I read this in one day. Thus, thru their mother's words, they enter the world of poodle skirts, county fairs, and Studebakers. Their mother, Elizabeth had had a life altering affair with a "bad boy" prior to marrying their father.

She was swept off her feet and away from her "Pleasantville" like life and good old fiance, Bob by a childhood friend, AJ. They get in trouble, cause a scandal, experience loss. The book is suspensful and keeps the reader hanging until the very end. I kept asking myself My one complaint: I would have liked to know her daughters better.

I wish there had been a little more about Sarah and Emily, the daughters of the fun, courageous Elizabeth. Jun 13, Fedora rated it really liked it. Two sisters find their mother's diary as they are cleaning out the attic. Their mother is in a coma, and they aren't sure whether she will recover. The entries reveal a passionate woman that they have a hard time seeing as their mother.

This woman is torn between two men who lay claim to her heart, and the daughters cannot imagine her loving another man who is not their father. They are torn between intruding on her privacy and finding out who she chose. Initially this read a bit slowly and painf Two sisters find their mother's diary as they are cleaning out the attic. Initially this read a bit slowly and painfully, because Ms. Goudge portrays the small-mindedness of the times and her strict mother so well. A very lovely unveiling and ultimately satisfying ending.

Aug 20, Barb rated it really liked it. I have loved all Eileen Goudge books and this is another one to read. The sisters found their mom's diary while cleaning out the attic because their mom was dying. To their surprise, the diary was all about a guy named AJ that their mom loved and lusted after, but then she married Bob Marshall instead.

Wait until you read the end of book Sep 26, Mikkee rated it it was ok. I was not at all impressed by this book. The characters were one-dimensional and annoying. It looks like a novel, but in many places it was no better than a Harlequin novel. The author's use of big words came across as annoying and out of place. Apr 26, Lorraine rated it liked it. An easy read love story, with a bit of a twist at the end. Sweet, not very deep, but I enjoyed it, and made me cry towards the end. Makes you ask yourself if you really know your parents, and their story as they were growing up.

May 26, Nancy rated it really liked it. Beautiful love story! Easy read. Sorry it's over already:. Sep 09, Cindy Hatok rated it really liked it. This is a good story, a quick read and a great love story. I was surprised by the ending, never expected it. I loved the characters too. Jul 01, Helen rated it liked it Shelves: cosy-mystery , modern-mystery , fiction , romance. I've put it into a number of categories because it fits in a number of places. It starts with sisters finding an old diary of their mother's when they are clearing out their parents' house for the new owners.

They decide to read it and what follows are diary entries plus a narration of what was happening at the time and finally the sisters' reaction to events. It is difficult to write a book like this without giving away the ending but Goudge does it very well. The characters are very real and sy I've put it into a number of categories because it fits in a number of places.

The characters are very real and sympathetic and as long as one remembers that the fifties were a different world the events are believable. I do have a query, though. There is a woman mentioned, Olive Diefenbaker, and I really wonder where she found the name because Canadian Prime Minister John Diefenbaker was married to an Olive and I can't think the name is particularly common. Any way, I enjoyed the book. Apr 20, Laurel-Rain rated it it was amazing.

Two daughters, Sarah and Emily, are packing up their family home. Their father died the year before, and their mother, Elizabeth, is in an extended care facility following a stroke. Her death seems eminent. Imagine their surprise, then, to find an old diary. As the story unf Two daughters, Sarah and Emily, are packing up their family home. As the story unfolds, they come to certain conclusions, which later turn out to be erroneous. It reads like a romance novel, or a mystery — take your pick — but the sweetly tender romance and its consequences at a period in the s seems faintly nostalgic and true to the spirit of those times.

Small town life is described beautifully, reminding the reader of both the benefits and disadvantages of such a world. Set in the time of the Korean War, with soldiers going off to fight bravely, leaving their girlfriends and wives behind — the romance is heightened by the urgency of couplings during such a time.

At first, as I began this story, I thought it deserved only four stars, at best. Oct 01, Shaun rated it really liked it Shelves: read-in Who doesn't love a love story, and Eileen Goudge's The Diary is just that, a story of love and all its wonderful complexities. The story begins when two middle-aged sisters come across their dying mother's old diary while cleaning out the attic, and they are confronted with the realization that Dad was not the love of their mother's life, as she had always led them to believe.

Although it took a little while for me to warm up to this book, about a third of the way through I found myself thoroughly invested in all the characters even if the writing and story occasionally teetered on cliche. A relatively short book at a little over pages, this is a quick and easy read that, at a minimum, promises the reader a shot of nostalgia as they reflect upon their own past and present loves and relationships. The author also deserves credit for creating a feeling of suspense in a story where the reader already knows the ending.

Overall, it's an entertaining tale capable of eliciting a tear or two before it's over. The biggest disappointment of this book was the perfect, make-you-feel-good ending when the not-so-perfect ending could have proven more powerful. Still, as a love story, it delivers. Aug 13, Connie N.

The main characters, of course, are Elizabeth their mother and the 2 men in her life--A. The story is told through Elizabeth's entries, so we understand her thoughts and her confusion as she tries to make a decision between them.

We become involved in their lives and have feelings for all of them. A chance encounter provides a surprising and very satisfying ending to the story. I will definitely read more from this author.
