This review is from: The Diaries of Nella Last: Writing in War and Peace (Kindle Edition)
An interesting story in so many ways.
Her writing blossoms over time and the minutae of the entries gives an insight into life for ordinary people during these years.
One is constantly surprised by views that we rarely see remembered elsewhere in documentary or fiction never mind biography.
The task of the editors must have been mountainous but we get to feel that we know the woman and her worries.
the only regret is that this edition does not cover the period when her son is wounded.
