Montgomery covers the years 1935 to 1942, the year of Montgomery's death. No longer dwelling in a farm community or a small rural village, Lucy Maud Montgomery explored life in downtown Toronto. Here she experienced thecultural riches the city had to offer while finding friendship and neighbourliness in the suburb of Swansea. The journal chronicles her hopes and satisfaction with her new home and neighbourhood, but also her struggles with her own and her husband's recurring bouts of depression, her worries abouther sons' academic performance, and her thoughts on the world events during these years. The final volume in the series offers an intimate eyewitness account of life in a growing city, a friendly neighbourhood, a changing world, and of a troubling family dynamic from 1935 to 1942, all recorded with Lucy Maud Montgomery's sharp eye and characteristic wit.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Her fans would never have known... 3.5 stars This is the last volume in L.M. Montgomery’s journals. She started writing them when she was about 14 years old, and continued throughout most of her life. In volume 5, she and her husband Ewan, a minister, have moved into Toronto; he is no longer preaching. Their sons, Chester and Stuart are going to law school and medical school, respectively. Maud spends a lot of her time worrying about Ewan, who is often very depressed, and Chester, who managed to get himself into all kinds of trouble. Maud herself is often depressed. It’s an interesting look at the life of probably one of the most famous Canadian authors, told in her own words. Her fans would never have known it, but she was not a very happy woman.
