To achieve the catharsis of strong emotions in times of supreme happiness or danger? Or simply to record some extraordinary event — such as Lady Bird Johnson's eyewitness account of Why do women keep diaries? Is it to record private thoughts they dare not reveal to anyone else?

To chart inner despair — as did Rachel Roberts and Virginia Woolf when on the brink of suicide? To achieve the catharsis of strong emotions in times of supreme happiness or danger? Or simply to record some extraordinary event — such as Lady Bird Johnson's eyewitness account of the assassination of President Kennedy, or Mrs Henry Duberly watching the Charge of the Light Brigade.

Sarah Gristwood has assembled a fascinating collection of diary extracts from the seventeenth to twentieth centuries, in which the topics are as diverse as the contributors. The entries range from the pious to the passionate, from the sublime to the mundane. Here is life from birth to the grave — with all its highs and lows — as seen through women's eyes.
