Diaries of Sarah Hurst

publisher/date: Amberley Publishing, 2009
pages:  328
paperback only
genre: diary

I adore this book – a diary written in such straight-forward language that Sarah Hurst seems to be talking to you, confiding in you.

Sarah’s lifetime lasts until the 19th century, but this diary covers a period of her life in which she was in love, engaged, then secretly married. Exciting times for a young lady!
