On Prince Edward Island, where Anne Shirley grew up in the sea-sprayed
town of Avonlea, there was no shortage of wonderful stories.
There was the case of Ludovic Speed, who wouldn't propose to the woman
he had courted for fifteen years until Anne devised a plan to "speed"
him up . . . if it didn't backfire and break his heart. But no
one could blame mischievous Anne for the hilarious battle of the sexes
that erupted when a man-hating woman and her cat got quarantined in the
same house with a woman-hating bachelor and his dog.
From sprawling Penhallow Grange, where a family waits nearly forever
for two quarreling lovers to break their stubborn silence, to the
tumbledown farm of Old Man Shaw, who awaits the retum of his beloved
daughter, L. M. Montgomery has written twelve tales of secret hopes and
hidden dreams, filled with enchantment and humor.
