For Keeps – reading

I just posted a new project on my site, one has been in the works for quite a while. You can see it here.

I feel there is some literature that I have been referencing while working on it. I’d like to share it here.

It is mostly books from late 19th – mid 20th century. They touch on issues of family values, the conflicts of professional and private life, ideas of love.  They are mostly diaries and memoirs.
