Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book, though containing many classical LM Montgomery elements, youth, Prince Edward Island, country life, is somewhat of a departure from the author's traditional style. The setting is modern (early 1930s), the heroine is practical, and mature themes, even controversial at the time, such as separation, divorce, and post-war depression are explored. But even though the mood is not as light as in many of Montgomery's earlier work, this book is still uplifting, comforting, and packed with witty dialogues and reflections. A great afternoon read.

Jane Stuart and her beautiful mother live under the thumb of her grandmother in Toronto. Jane feels she is not good at anything, especially school. Her grandmother and cousin Phyillis rub it in all the time. Jane's father doesn't reside at the house, and Jane believes that he's dead. But no, one day a girl from school tells her different. He's a poor writer living in a shack on Prince Edward Island.

One rainy April day a letter arrives in the mail. Her father wants Jane to come spend the summer with him. Jane hates her father because he must have done something awful for her mother to have left him. But she goes to the island and finds a new life. Her father loves her, she finds she has talents, and she is not constantly under someone's thumb. And she wonders: why did her parents split up?

I feel that this book is among L. M. Montgomery's best. It's a story of reconsiliation and a story where a trampled person can rise again. I really love it.

I first read this book over sixty years ago, when I was seven or eight years old. It was a school reading book, which meant that I could read it in school time but I could not take it home. I absolutely loved it and smuggled it out of school to finish at home because I could not bear to leave it behind. As I re-read it now and consider the adult themes of the book, I am quite surprised that I found it so enjoyable. However, the magic of a great writer was there - it drew me in from the first page, I identified with the heroine and felt her joys and woes, was sobered by her predicament and understood the world better at the end of it. Above all, for an eight year old, it had a happy ending and made the world seem a safer place, because the problems were resolved and Jane became happy. I had no idea that LM Montgomery was the famous author of the Anne of Avonlea books, because I had never heard of them.
Reading it as an adult, I can see that it is a little different from most of LM Montgomery's books, the prose a little darker than in the Avonlea books and not very typical of Montgomery's usual themes, either. I think it might be more suited to the tastes of modern children, who are accustomed to books dealing with difficult themes.

I've loved Montgomery's Anne books for as long as I can remember and one day I came acrossed another one of her books, Jane of Lantern Hill has been one of my favorites every since. If liked Anne Shirley, you'll love Jane Stuart

Of all the Maud Montgomery novels I have read, this is the best apart from her masterpiece, "Anne of Green Gables."
The style and themes are uniquely hers, but she clearly spent more time on it than many of her other works, and that paid off - it's mature, well characterised, witty and utterly engrossing.
Jane is her most loveable heroine since Anne Shirley, and although we've met oppressed & repressed children before in Montgomery's writings, and the settings and plot are very familiar, somehow it doesn't seem repetitive this time.
The ending is perhaps rather pat and contrived, but I wouldn't have wanted Jane's quest for Happiness to end any other way.
This edition is lovely, with hauntingly evocative artwork on the cover.

I loved this, the last book that L M Montgomery wrote. It's heroine Jane, is young, like Anne of Green Gables, but is dreadfully unhappy, living in Toronto with her mother in the home of her Grandmother. But it isn't home. Her father is dead, her mother is always out socialising, and her grandmother cannot speak without criticism. It makes for a truly miserable upbringing for Jane. Until, that is, she finds that not only is her father not dead, but she must spend the Summer with him on Prince Edward Island. This was a lovely read and especially as it was one of Montgomery's that I had never heard of. Recently re-published by Virago Classics, it comes with a wonderful cover.
