*** 1/2 stars. In March 1941, Virginia Woolf filled her pockets with stones and drowned herself in England’s River Ouse. Her body was found three weeks later. Six decades after her death, landscape designer Jo Bellamy travels to Sissinghurst Castle for two reasons: to study the celebrated White Garden created by Woolf’s lover Vita Sackville - West and to recover from the terrible wound of her grandfather’s unexplained suicide. Jo makes a shocking find: Woolf’s last diary, its first entry dated the day after she allegedly killed herself. Is the diary and content about Jo's grandfather real? Does it explain Jock's suicide when Jo told him she was going to England? Interesting premise. Nice read. Recommend If authenticated, Jo’s discovery could shatter everything historians believe about Woolf’s final hours. But when the Woolf diary is suddenly stolen, Jo’s quest to uncover the truth will lead her on a perilous journey into the tumultuous inner life of a literary icon whose connection to the White Garden ultimately proved devastating.
