Stern parents, awkward circumstances, misunderstandings, lovers’ quarrels – and one very determined cat – are some of the many hindrances that Montgomery’s characters find themselves battling on the way to the altar.

But Montgomery helps her lovers overcome these obstacles to true love by a wonderful assortment of means: maiden aunts come to the rescue; two pairs of twins play major roles; a marauding pig is an unusual cupid; the lovers themselves come up with striking solutions. Whatever storms they must weather on the sea of love, whether they are rich or poor, young or old, trembling with romance or properly practical, in Montgomery’s hands courting couples seem destined to live “happily ever after.”

Funny, heartwarming, and full of romance, these eighteen stories are sure to delight Montgomery’s many fans.

About the Author:

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, in 1874. Educated at Prince Edward College, Charlottetown, and Dalhousie University, she embarked on a career in teaching. From 1898 until 1911 she took care of her maternal grandmother in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, and during this time wrote many poems and stories for Canadian and American magazines.

Montgomery’s first novel, Anne of Green Gables, met with immediate critical and popular acclaim, and its success, both national and international, led to seven sequels. More autobiographical than the books about Anne is the trilogy of novels about another Island orphan, Emily Starr.

In 1911 Montgomery married the Rev. Ewan Macdonald, a Presbyterian clergyman, and they lived in Ontario, where he was the pastor of parishes in Leaskdale and, later, in Norval. They retired to Toronto in 1936.

Lucy Maud Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942.

Review:

“The flowing ease of Montgomery’s prose, the grace of her phrasing, and the delightful undertone of her dry humour give the stories life – and prove that their enjoyment lies in considerably more than mere literary curiosity.”
Ottawa Citizen
