Publisher Description

In celebration of the fifteenth anniversary of its original publication, Carol Shields's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is now available in a Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition

One of the most successful and acclaimed novels of our time, this fictionalized autobiography of Daisy Goodwill Flett is a subtle but affecting portrait of an everywoman reflecting on an unconventional life. What transforms this seemingly ordinary tale is the richness of Daisy's vividly described inner life--from her earliest memories of her adoptive mother to her awareness of impending death.

With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Beautifully written...however...

A woman of 25 wouldn’t understand the limits that used to exist for women...poor Daisy.
A woman of 75 would understand and regret...poor Daisy
A woman of 55 would understand she still could have hope and a future...thank God I’m not Daisy!

The stone diaries

Major hiccup - the book only downloaded One page from each chapter - not worth the money. I hope I can get the whole book. I really wanted to read it.
