On Prince Edward Island, where Anne Shirley grew up in the sea-sprayed town of Avonlea, there was no shortage of wonderful stories. There was the case of Ludovic Speed, who wouldn't propose to the woman he had courted for fifteen years until Anne devised a plan to „speed” him up . . . if it didn't backfire and break his heart. But no one could blame mischievous Anne for the hilarious battle of the sexes that erupted when a man-hating woman and her cat got quarantined in the same house with a woman-hating bachelor and his dog. From sprawling Penhallow Grange, where a family waits nearly forever for two quarreling lovers to break their stubborn silence, to the tumbledown farm of Old Man Shaw, who awaits the return of his beloved daughter, L. M. Montgomery has written twelve tales of secret hopes and hidden dreams, filled with enchantment and humor.

L. M. Montgomery: Chronicles of Avonlea

Edward Herceg Szigetének lakói reszkessetek! Montgomery elszabadult, és a megrögzött agglegényektől az utolsó macskás vénylányig mindenkit kiházasít. Életkor nem akadály, senki sem menekülhet!

Persze nem csak erről szólnak a történetek, hanem magányról, büszkeségről, makacsságról és mindezt levetkőzve arról a boldogságról, amit csak egy másik ember szeretete adhat. Ezt koronázza az idilli zöld táj, és a múlt század naiv bája. Fogyasztása mellé hintaszék és évszaktól függően kandallótűz javasolt.

I refused to take that class in Sunday School the first time I was asked. It was not that I objected to teaching in the Sunday School. On the contrary I rather liked the idea; but it was the Rev. Mr. Allan who asked me, and it had always been a matter of principle with me never to do anything a man asked me to do if I could help it. I was noted for that.

Lucinda had magnificent eyes. Once Romney had written a sonnet to them in which he compared their colour to ripe blueberries. This may not sound poetical to you unless you know or remember just what the tints of ripe blueberries are—dusky purple in some lights, clear slate in others, and yet again in others the misty hue of early meadow violets.

It was a shame that a girl like Sara should grow up in a place like White Sands, “with no advantages and no education,” said Mrs. Adair scornfully, not understanding that wisdom and knowledge are two entirely different things.

(…) it had always been a matter of principle with me never to do anything a man asked me to do if I could help it. (…) It saves a great deal of trouble and it simplifies everything beautifully.

– She won’t let Prissy go anywhere alone after this, and how am I to know when the old cat is away?
– Please don’t insult cats, – I said.

Tact is a faculty for meandering around to a given point instead of making a bee-line. I have no tact. I am noted for that.
