The award-winning poet presents a daily record of her thoughts and feelings during her eighty-second year, reflecting on her youth, the vicissitudes of her cat, the rigors of a Maine winter, and the mystery of old age

Blackwell North Amer
For the many thousands of fans who have been nourished by May Sarton's words over the years, this last journal by the beloved Maine poet/writer will be very special. May Sarton died on July 16, 1995, just a few months after she finished this pilgrimage through her 82nd year.
Over the two decades since she published Journal of a Solitude, Sarton's journals have been eagerly awaited, markers of daily events, feelings, and responses to the world around her house-by-the-sea. In this last journal, Sarton continues to adjust to the feeling that she is a stranger in the land of old age. And though her struggles and daily setbacks continue, there is an optimistic, musing tone as she contemplates this unique time in a person's life.
