Whilst I enjoyed this I can't help thinking it was a bit too 'mediocre' for publication . I'm not knocking May at all here as my own diary is hardly thrilling but she didn't really get up to much so the book became a little boring towards the end and I found myself skipping entries .If it had been fiction the author would have had to add quite a lot more 'scandal' to please readers !
What came across to me was just how resigned people got to the war which is sad in itself .
It has made me very interested in May and her family though . I'd love to know about her marriage to Frederick and I really hope she found true happiness .
