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.

A selection of cozy, feel-good short stories. I like that LMM doesn't try anything new in her short stories, but that they're just short versions of her novels, and that the atmosphere is the same. My favourite is "Old Lady Lloyd" which - who'd have thunk! - also happens to be the longest ;-)

Great for those of us that can't get enough of Avonlea. Anne features in a few short stories, but not all.

First of all, a lot of these short stories were reused in her novels, so the plots can begin to sound very familiar. Second of all, most of the stories in this volume and its companion were mined for plots for episodes in the "Road to Avonles" tv series.
