I have long since outgrown all my childhood books. Nancy Drew is long gone, and I can't even "remember" most of the books that I read growing up. But I kept every one of L.M. Montgomery's books, and I still re-read them periodically. Even though they are written for children, I find myself entertained even now, and even after I have already read all of them more than a few times. She's just that good! L.M. Montgomery was a fascinating person, and she wrote some fascinating, compelling, books.

So, even though I don't EVER read journals, I decided to splurge on this abridged version of L.M. Montgomery's journals. For an abridged version, this is quite a heavy book! Lots and lots of pages. But this turns out to be a good thing, as Lucy Maud is just as interesting in her journals as in her novels, if not more so.

This first volume covers her life up until her engagement, and then a few years past that as she stays to nurse her ailing grandmother. They both know that the wedding will have to be postponed until her grandmother dies. Reading this from the vantage point of 2014, it was not clear to me why this should be so, but it was obviously the way things were done back then, and neither of them seem to have too many objections to pushing off their wedding for this amount of time.

This first novel is very interesting, and it is also, I think, the most optimistic journal out of the five published volumes of her journals. Her signature turn of phrase is very much in evidence here, and her observations of life in general, and her life in particular, make this journal a very interesting read.

I love L.M. Montgomery's writing, and this first journal gives clear insight into her life, ideas, thought process, and plot lines for many of her books. It was a refreshing read, and frankly, I couldn't put it down.
