Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Christmas With Anne ( Sept. 1996; 214 pp.; 0-385-32288- 7): The title is a misnomer: There are two Christmas stories featuring Anne (the incident of Matthew and the puffed sleeves, and the surprise thawing of Miss Katherine Brooks); the other pieces have been assembled from magazine stories never published in the US. Readers will not feel cheated, however; Wilmshurst has selected tales as heartwarming as those set at Green Gables and beyond, and Montgomery's fans are always ready for any new story that can be mustered from this fabled author's pen.
From the Publisher
"[The stories] are filled with the formal language and exuberant descriptive passages so characteristic of the author’s day. . . . A nice introduction to Montgomery and a welcome treat for fans." — School Library Journal

Meet the Author

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, in 1874. Educated at Prince Edward College, Charlottetown, and Dalhousie University, she embarked on a career in teaching. From 1898 until 1911 she took care of her maternal grandmother in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, and during this time wrote many poems and stories for Canadian and American magazines.

Montgomery’s first novel, Anne of Green Gables, met with immediate critical and popular acclaim, and its success, both national and international, led to seven sequels. More autobiographical than the books about Anne is the trilogy of novels about another Island orphan, Emily Starr.

In 1911 Montgomery married the Rev. Ewan Macdonald, a Presbyterian clergyman, and they lived in Ontario, where he was the pastor of parishes in Leaskdale and, later, in Norval. They retired to Toronto in 1936.

Lucy Maud Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942.

Read an Excerpt

The drive from the station to Green Gables had always been a very pleasant part of Anne's weekends home. She always recalled her first drive home from Bright River with Matthew. That had been in spring and this was December, but everything along the road kept saying to her, "Do you remember?" The snow crisped under the runners; the music of the bells tinkled through the ranks of tall pointed firs, snow-laden. The White Way of Delight had little festoons of stars tangled in the trees. And on the last hill but one they saw the great gulf, white and mystical under the moon but not yet ice-bound.

"There's just one spot on this road where I always feel suddenly... `I'm home,'" said Anne. "It's the top of the next hill, where we'll see the lights of Green Gables. I'm just thinking of the supper Marilla will have ready for us. I believe I can smell it here. Oh, it's good...good...good to be home again!"

    Misleading title

    I was somewhat disappointed with this collection of short stories. I had just finished reading the Anne series when I discovered this book and ordered it. I began reading it thinking that it was perhaps further tales of Anne at Christmas time, but it was actually just exerpts from the Anne books among other short stories that were less than thrilling compared to the wonderfully delightful Anne books. It really was a good book of short stories just don't begin reading with false hopes.
