Lucy Maud Montgomery (L.M. Montgomery) was a prolific Canadian writer of books and short stories for children and adults during the first half of the twentieth century. Her writings, frequently set in Prince Edward Island where she was born and grew up, helped to put Canada on the literary map and made her a famous and beloved author, both during her own life and after her death. She published hundreds of short stories and twenty novels; her public-domain short stories have been collected in chronological order by Project Gutenberg. This project consists of stories published in 1904.

It's interesting to see how Montgomery's writing progresses by listening to these collection of short stories, and you can hear bits and pieces that make their way into the later full length books of Anne, Emily, and others. Beverly Scott's readings were beautiful and I hope to find more of her work. However, some of the readers of this particular collection are so terrible that I have to just skip their stories. One reader cannot even properly pronounce the name of the main character in the story. I guess no one else had submitted a reading of those chapters.

I love everything that I've ever read by Lucy Maud Montgomery, but some of the readers make it painful to listen to this selection.
