I read it last night. The only other books I have read are Anne, Emily, Jane Of Lantern Hill,Chronicles of Avonlea, The Road To Yesterday and The Doctor's Sweetheart, and compared to those this story seemed a lot plainer than those. Also--the axe? And speaking at the end? I would have liked it better if Kilmeny overcame her lack of confidence and realised that Eric loved her, and didn't care if she couldn't speak. But that would have made the story too long Roll Eyes

It was OK, but not the best I've read. I never believed I'd say this--it's on a par with Jane. Shocked

More about Neil would have been nice.
