The Night Journal by Elizabeth Crook has me asking a lot of questions about the telling our story. Here's a synopsis from the back cover: Meg Mabry has always felt oppressed by her family's legendary past. In the 1890's her great-grandmother Hannah Bass wrote revealing diaries of her life on the southwestern frontier, Hannah's daughter published these accounts, creating an American literary landmark, and cementing her career as a renowned historian in the process. Meg, however, in rebellion against the imperious Bassie, has refused until now to read her great-grandmother's journals.
