Kilmeny of the Orchard

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.7 stars; 439 reviews)

Eric Marshall is all that a well brought-up young man should be. Handsome, steadfast, and full of ambition, he is expected to expand the Marshall & Company empire -- and to marry a woman suitable to replace his mother in Nova Scotia's finest circles. When a sick friend asks for a favour, becoming a substitute schoolmaster in the Prince Edward Island countryside seems the perfect post-graduation lark. But when Eric wanders into an old orchard at twilight, his life will be changed forever... (Summary by Sarah Jennings) (3 hr 46 min)

(5 stars)

This is one of the most beautiful love stories I've ever read. I love it.

A charming L.M. Montgomery love story

(4 stars)

A short little love story that I mostly enjoyed - I must admit that the men's fawning over Kilmeny's looks was a bit irritating. Compared to Anne Shirley, Kilmeny is a shallow and one-on-one character. Still, I enjoyed the book and the readers.

Sweet and simple

(5 stars)

Lovely story. :) If you like exciting/unpredictable plots this might not be for you, but if you already enjoy Montgomery's books you're bound to love it. It's a sweet, simple story with a beautiful setting and a somewhat mysterious, fairytale-like air.

(4 stars)

Enjoyed the story. I prefer it generally when it is told by one person, but they were all quite good.
