Montgomery covers the years from 1935 to 1942, the year of Montgomerys death. It completes the story of a gifted creative writer who was also wife, mother, community leader, and public figure. No longer dwelling in a farm community or a small rural village, Lucy Maud Montgomery explored life in downtown Toronto and turned her journals into the unprecedented diary of a suburban housewife. Here she experienced the cultural riches the city had to offer while finding friendship and neighbourliness in the suburb of Swansea, where she settled with her husband. The journal chronicles her hopes and satisfaction with her new home and neighbourhood, but also her struggles with her own and her husbands recurring bouts of depression, and her worries over the academic performance and behaviour of her sons. The journals also record her views on world events such as the abdication of Edward VIII, Italys invasion of Ethiopia, and the apparent inability of the League of Nations to deter Hitler. This final volume in the series offers an intimate eye-witness 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 Montgomerys sharp eye and characteristic wit.
