Overview

A sweet and moving romance from the author of the beloved Anne of Green Gables series!

Eric Marshall, recent college graduate, has the world at his feet. He’s handsome, popular, wealthy, and surprisingly, single. Living the bachelor lifestyle with his widowed father, he’s never given much thought to romance. When an old school friend asks Eric to substitute teach for him on Prince Edward Island while he recuperates from an illness, Eric thinks, why not? He’s got some time to kill before diving into the family business with his father, and the rustic island may be a good diversion for him.

Kilmeny and Eric's story was tender and sweet. A must read for all ages. **This nookbook copy does have quite a few errors due to formatting. If you want to read it, and I highly recommend that you do, I would choose another free version that is offered.**

I absolutely love this little book, but beware that the free version is no good. It was never edited after scanning, so it is FULL of typographical errors. Get another copy...
