Jane of Lantern Hill

Jane of Lantern Hill is L.M. Montgomery’s twenty-third book, first published in August 1937 by McClelland and Stewart (Toronto) and the Frederick A. Stokes Company (New York). Set in Toronto and in Prince Edward Island, it depicts Jane Stuart’s attempt to reunite her estranged parents in spite of years of misunderstanding as well as interference on the part of her maternal grandmother and her paternal aunt. It was preceded by Anne of Windy Poplars (1936) and followed by Anne of Ingleside (1939).

The book formed the basis of Kevin Sullivan’s telefilm Lantern Hill (1990), which starred Mairon Bennett, Sam Waterston, Sarah Polley, and Colleen Dewhurst.


“To the memory of ‘Lucky’ the charming affectionate comrade of fourteen years.”


The book consists of forty-three untitled chapters.
