Along the Shore
Tales by the SeaBook - 1989
Along The Shore: Tales by the Sea is the second charming collection of L.M. Montgomery's rediscovered stories to be reprinted from Rea Wilmshurst's collection. A companion to Akin to Anne: Tales of Other Orphans, this book offers a wide-ranging selection of Montgomery's tales that exemplify her story-telling art. Linked by the presence of the sea, these sixteen tales are eloquent statements of Montgomery's love for the "wonderful purple shores and sweeps of shimmering blue water" of her native Prince Edward Isl∧ children's adventures, poignant romances, humorous and tragic stories combine to form a memorable volume. Montgomery spent half her life away from her beloved Island, but when she died her body was returned to the Cavendish cemetery, to lie within sight and sound of the sea she loved so well. These stories live as vivid reminders of that love.
