Regina’s Closet: Finding My Grandmother’s Secret Journal ~Diana Raab
Part memoir, part diary of the author’s grandmother Regina, Regina’s Closet kept my attention page after page. It was a fast read I could hardly put down. The author has woven her emotional struggle to process her grief with excerpts of her grandmother’s diary given to her over 40 years after her grandmother completed suicide.
While the memoir is about the relationship between author and grandmother and the loss created when the grandmother died, the diary of Regina is also a heartbreaking account of WWI and post WWI years as a child refugee from Kalush, Galicia (a partition of Poland).
Regina’s Closet is a beautiful memorialization of the author’s grandmother’s life and another example of down to earth, easy to read, fully engaging memoir.
