Overview

For as long as she could remember, Jane Stuart and her mother lived with her grandmother in a dreary mansion in Toronto. Jane always believed her father was dead—until she accidentally learned he was alive and well and living on Prince Edward Island. When Jane spends the summer at his cottage on Lantern Hill, doing all the wonderful things Grandmother deems unladylike, she dares to dream that there could be such a house back in Toronto...a house where she, Mother, and Father could live together without Grandmother directing their lives—a house that could be called home.

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.

I loved this book growing up that my mother had as a child. When my family was getting ready to move to California in the 1974, My grandpa unbeknownst to my mom, sold a box of my books, one of which was, Jane Of Lantern Hill. I have searched for years for a copy & am elated to say that I love this book at age 60, that I did as a young girl. A wonderful book for all ages!

This is definitely one of my favorite books of all time. I first received it in the 4th grade from a teacher, and have re-read it every year. I am now starting college and have decided to find a hardback version.

My daughter has read this so many times that the paperback is ruined. She enjoyed reading out loud to me and I liked it too. We're getting a hardback this time. The book has wonderful, healthy values, portrays some very vivid and realistic emotional content. It's the kind of book you wish could just go on and on.
