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.
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.
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 first read this book when I was around 7 years
old.I could relate to Jane.Then I read it over
and over, asI grew up. I found myself relating
to the parents of Jane as well. I really enjoyed this book.
I reccomend to everyone this is a must read book!!!!
A very good book!!!

So agreeable not to be bored by sex scenes, bad language or violence.
Just like Anne of Green Gables and Emily of New Moon, a book to come back to.
Lucy Maud Montgomery's depiction of both beauty and the ugliness of surroundings is magnificently portrayed in this gentle novel. Read morePublished on 20 April 2014 by MRS
