I am a huge fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery, all of her novels give me a powerful sense of nostalgia and comfort, a dream of things that once were. It’s no secret that I enjoy classic novels, reading about times gone by always has fascinated me, and probably always will.
There is an innocence, a wholesomeness to her work, it pulls you in and makes you feel right at home. The characters in this book were all charming, I enjoyed reading about their adventures and mischief. I can’t say I had a favorite character, in fact, I believe they were all my favorites in their own way, from their competitiveness to their creativity, and of course, each character is full of heart.
The plot was packed full of excitement, taking the reader from story to story, there was never a dull moment.
Overall I enjoyed this novel, it is a lighthearted but still meaningful story, that I know will bring joy to children and adults alike. I recommend this novel to fans of classic literature, those looking for a cosy read to curl up with, be that be on a cool night or a warm summers day.
