An anthology of poetry by three young women, from three generations of the same family writing at different periods of the twentieth century. Their poetry was originally written in diaries as a private expression of their hopes, fears and dreams. This collection illustrates how they movingly express common themes of young adulthood: identity, relationship, meaning, loss and hope for the future. It is illustrated throughout with photographs.
