Back Cover Text
Marigold Lesley is very young when this story opens. And all the other Lesley of Harmony Harbour are very old. So Marigold escapes through the magic green door of the Orchard Room to find Sylvia—who was probably the most satisfactory playmate a little girl ever had. But finally even Marigold grows old enough to go to school, down the road past Big Dog’s and the flock of terrible turkeys. And when she gets really quite old, she meets Sidney Guest, and decides that is another sort of magic!
Lucy Maud Montgomery’s fascinating accounts of the lives and romances of Anne, Emily, and other well-loved characters have achieved long-lasting popularity the world over. Born in 1874 in Prince Edward Island, Lucy Maud showed an early flair for story-telling. She soon began to have her writing published in papers and magazines, and when she died in Toronto in 1942 she had written more than twenty novels and a large number of short stories. Most of her books are set in Prince Edward Island, which she loved very much and wrote of most beautifully. Anne of Green Gables, her most popular work, has been translated into thirty-six languages, made into a film twice, and has had continuing success as a stage play. Lucy Maud Montgomery’s early home at Cavendish, P.E.I., where she is buried, is a much-visited historic site.
