Back Cover Text
In this fresh and charming story of youth, love and laughter, young Pat Gardiner grows up in the romantic and picturesque setting of rural Prince Edward Island amongst the numerous great-aunts of the Gardiner family. ‘Jingle’ Gordon and his dog grew up along with her, and we share with Pat and ‘Jingle’ the joy and the tribulations of youth, and their awakening to love.
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.
