bookshelves: childhood, chaste-romance-novels
Read in April, 2009

Definitely a third-rate Montgomery work. It has the romanticized description of PEI and the somewhat facile love story all fans look for in her work, but the characters lack depth and there doesn't really seem to be much of a plot. I would recommend it only to someone who has read the truly GREAT L.M. Montgomery books and who therefore won't mistake this novelette to be characteristic of her oeuvre. Did I just say oeuvre in a review? Shame on pretentious me. Read the Anne or the Emily books instead.
