These MARVELOUS books tell the tale of a scorned little girl who becomes the heart of an unusual home and eventually endears herself to even the crustiest of townsfolk. As she grows her adventures (and misadventures, too) become ever more engaging, and the sometimes unexpected turns of her life on the way to her own womanhood and family will make you laugh, cry, and cringe on occasion.

Although the main character is fictional, the books will give you a clear view of day-to-day life in the late 1800's/early 1900's on (the real) Prince Edward Island in Canada.

My children (and I) have enjoyed these books at every age from pre-reading listeners up through early (and middle-aged!) adulthood. (Teens and pre-teens especially enjoy the love-hate-infatuation threads of romance that run through the stories.)
