Montgomery Review 9: Kilmeny of the Orchard

Kilmeny of the Orchard (L.C. Page and Company, 1910)As will be seen, the plot is not particularly novel, but the charm and beauty of the story rest in its descriptive passages and in the manner in which it is told. It is one of those tales of the outdoors that are especially pleasing in summer – and, as all summer reading should be, it is not too long – merely a well-told, simple narrative of a little known part of the world and some delightful people. —The Washington Herald (Washington, DC)
