This year I find that they are re-releasing the first journal with ALL entries present and I quickly preordered my copy from Amazon. It took a while for a copy to find its way to me but I was glad when it finally did and I jumped right in. I immediately liked how much better the new version is formatted - with all of the pictures within the texts and the footnotes at the bottom of each page rather than at the back of the book.
The journal itself is hard to describe. I remember when reading the journals originally, I thought that it was odd how Maud went from this happy go lucky girl to this somber, sad woman as the years went on. However, now with all of the entries put back in, one can see that she was always a bit moody and prone to the blues from an early age. While her blues seem to have been more prevalent as the years went on, it's not something that stared with her marriage, it was with her long before that. I also liked being able to read more of her verbose entries about the landscapes.
I feel after reading this journal in full I have a better understanding of who Maud was and I like her a lot more. I'm very glad they decided to redo these and hope that there is more to come!
