On offer is an intriguing 1984 manuscript diary handwritten by a young man [we estimate 15 or 16 as he is still in school and mentions studying the Civil War in History class] who shares in his writings a long tale of desire for a girl named Sarah. The handmade diary, 4 x 6 inches, being a piece of leather wrapped around colored paper and held by a piece of binding cord like string, is a gift from this girl. Purportedly found under a bridge, the 92 pages of manuscript writing reveals Sarah's terrible family life and the boy's struggle through love to protect her and provide a better life. That said he lashes out at her when she fails to stay in contact or keeps him wondering if she is well and his life is peppered with other conquests as he laments his relationship with Sarah. He considers plans to take her away and escape the abuse but given the young man's age and still being in school there is really little he can do but the writing makes for a compelling portrait of the two. There are a number of illustrations that add to the charm of this romance of the 1980s. The town they are in is identified by the name 'Hope' and we believe from other clues that this is most probably Hope Michigan. VG+.
