After Many Years Twenty - One "Long Lost" Stories by L.M. Montgomery by Carolyn Strom & Christy Woster

Sand Dunes on P. E. I. (Wikipedia)

This collection of short stories by L.M. Montgomery isn't as enjoyable as the novels but it does have Montgomery's charm and magic. Filled with unusual characters and descriptions of the beauty of Prince Edward Island, they are a joy to read. Any Montgomery fan will want to read them.

There's the naughty orphan boy who makes friends with the old judge, old Miser Tom who sits under the apple tree, the strange and messy family who provide their judgemental neighbours with a wonderful dinner and the matchmaker who uses reverse psychology to get a young couple together.
These are just some of the memorable characters in these stories.  Montgomery has an almost mystical relationship with nature so even trees, such as the apple tree, become like people in her stories.

I prefer her series, but I have always loved L M Montgomery's stories as well so it was wonderful to find a new collection.

I received this free ebook from Net Galley in return for an honest review.
