L. M. Montgomery shines again in this second compilation of her short stories, this time those that were published in 1902-1903. The same whimsical, funny, and wholesome sweetness that she would later become known for in her Anne Shirley series, was on display in these earlier published tales.

I won't say much on the overall quality of the writing, as that was already covered in the review on the first volume of the short stories, those between 1896-1901. The quality is vintage Montgomery, excep...more
L.M. Montgomery is a genius. Probably many people have said that, but I mean it. I've been absorbing all her short stories over the past four days, and though I like the 'him-her' ones best, they're all fantastic.

In the later ones there's hints of Anne's House of Dreams and Anne of Avonlea, and even an entire chapter from Anne of Green Gables, but I don't mind. And wouldn't it be funny if that 'short story' is what prompted all of Anne?

The stories are from 1899 to 1928, and there are certain thr...more

Add this author to my list of favorites. Sweet stories with happy endings.
A wonderful selection of short stories over all kinds of topics, although the three Christmas stories are very alike. It is hard for me to pick a favorite but The Running Away of Chester is one of them with its very detailed description of Chester's plight. And The Strike at Putney is hilarious and quite unusual. As for romances I have always liked An Unconventional Confidence and it still holds its charm.
These stories were sort of whimsical. Often they had sad or prideful elements, and the conflicts were always characters clashing with other characters. In the end, though, some happy conclusion was reached, often by one of the characters admitting a mistake on their part and apologizing, which was interesting. I enjoyed these but wasn't necessarily moved by them.
I've been listening to these on Librivox. Some of the readers are great and some are well...not. Some of the stories feel like they came straight from Louisa May Alcott. And others are so incredibly sappy that I laugh. But they make my kitchen chores go by quickly and I've been enjoying myself.
Again, if you enjoy simple, well-written, happy-ending stories, then you are going to love this collection by L.M. Montgomery. These are what I would consider to be, perfect bedtime reading. I go to sleep, happy, content that all is right in the world. Or at least in her world.
My favorites are: An Unconventional Confidence, The Bride Roses, The Old Chest at Wyther Grange, The Romance of Aunt Beatrice, The Martyrdom of Estelle, and The Running Away of Chester.
I am currently listening to this on Librivox and enjoying it very much. I confess to often being prompted to tears by these lovely corny stories.
An excellent group of short stories by Montgomery, one of my favorite. What a nice way to finish off another wonderful year of reading.
Like the previous collection, these are enjoyable but brief reads - it's still interesting to see when she's reused an idea or plot.
More lovely short stories from L.M. Montgomery. They are so full of fun characters and it's very easy to get into each story.
Yet another delightful grouping of LMM's works. I read this on the Kindle for free.
The stories are improving and there were a lot that were 4 star quality.
