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-hunting woman and her cat got quarantined in the same house with a woman-hating bachelor and his dog. Form 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 return of his beloved daughter, L.M. Montgomery has written twelve tales of secret hopes and hidden dreams, filled with enchantment and humor.

From the author of "Anne of Green Gables" is this anthology of short stories focuses on some of the other residents of Avonlea (fans of Anne Shirley may be disappointed, as she only appears briefly in one of them).
Montgomery is a good writer, though sometimes a bit too sentimental. She's a big fan of lovers that were divided years ago after a silly argument, or people being visited by a loved one on their death bed, or couples struggling to be together after a family member has forbidden their union. There's even a ghost at one point!
