I'm close to finishing this collection of "Avonlea"-type of short stories, close enough to do a review. If you like Anne of Green Gables genre stories, you will enjoy these. I am enjoying them, but they're not as good as the original Anne books, imo. Overall, they are entertaining, and will bring a smile to your face as you read. ( )

What a delightful trip back to Prince Edward Island! One must be familiar with the Blythes'/Ingleside's history in order to fully appreciate these stories; they did indeed provide good moments of poignancy and laughter. To see Rilla of Ingleside's story taking place in the background was quite a touch. ( )

The stories would have been much more satisfying without the constant Blythe name-dropping. One or two stories to allude to the lives of the Blythe clan post-Rilla would have sufficed, not the constant idolization of Anne Blythe.

Regardless there were some good stories in here, especially the last, A Commonplace Woman. ( )

L.M. Montgomery=joy. Although…these are all set in Avonlea and several of them mention Walter and…okay, I hope I’m not spoiling Rilla of Ingleside for anyone, but Walter was my favorite Blythe child and I cried buckets of tears in Rilla, and whenever anyone mentions Walter my throat starts getting all tight and my eyes start watering and I have to blink rapidly so as not to start bawling.

It's been a while since I read these, but as I looked back over the table of contents, I kept thinking, "Oh, I remember that one! It's so good." This is probably my favorite short story collection by L.M. Montgomery. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553560689, Mass Market Paperback)

For Anne and Gilbert Blythe, life in a small village is never dull because of all the entertaining gossip, and what strange and funny tales they hear: about the mischievous twins whose dearest wish comes true when they meet up with a bored and haunted millionaire; or clever Penelope Craig, who considers herself an expert on children -- until she adopts a boy of her own; or Timothy Randebush, a man so eager to keep his brother out of the clutches of a dangerous woman that he spirits her away -- only to fall prey to her charms himself. Filled with unexpected surprises, laughter, and tears, here are fourteen of the Blythes' favorite tales.
