I haven’t done a This Old Thing post since June! I figure it’s time for another one.
I pulled a few Lucy Maud Montgomery books off the shelf for today’s post. These ones don’t feature Anne Shirley though childhood and growing up are the main concern. I bought two of these books at the used bookstore just after they received a haul of Montgomery books. I don’t think they were even read; they’re in excellent shape. Kilmeny I bought at a thrift store.
Magic for Marigold. Obviously this one features episodes in the young life of a girl named Marigold.
The Story Girl. The players in this story have made their way to television in The Road to Avonlea series. The story is told from the point of view of Beverly King.
Kilmeny of the Orchard. This is the story of schoolteacher Eric Marshall and his ladylove, Kilmeny.
I doubt that any of these will be as good as Anne of Green Gables or The Blue Castle, but a bad Montgomery is better than a good deal of other books.
Have you read any of these?
