Some portions of the diary, while continuously fraught with stress, are actually quite funny. She discusses one young man who stays with her and spends most of the time talking about how much better things are in Canada. She makes an aside that she hopes to get him back there just as soon as possible. In one memorable sequence, one of her supposed helpers backs out, and her anger at his cowardice is palpable. It rises off the pages in such a white-hot fury that it almost burns one's fingers when holding the book.
In the frontispiece, it is mentioned that the translator wanted some background from Mme. Brusselmans regarding where and how she hid her diary, and in her brief response, she expresses surprise that anyone would be interested in her words. My reaction upon reading them is that I'm amazed anyone wouldn't be.
