Journal of a SolitudeJournal of a Solitude by May Sarton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Poet and novelist May Sarton retreated to Norton, New Hampshire for a year to write. While she lived alone, she had many visitors and took many trips while there. This lovely journal contains her thoughts as the seasons and other things change throughout the year. She meditates on a lot of issues and often says in few words what I struggle with but would take me pages to say. The book is like talking to an old friend who speaks so beautifully and eloquently you never want to leave. Highly recommended.
