Format: Paperback
I have read two other collection of LMM's short stories and find this one my favorite. First of all, I like the idea of how the writing of a journal, a letter or an invitation could change a person's life. I don't know if this is still possible in today's world anymore. But it all seems so true to me when I read stories that took place nearly a hundred years ago. I just wish I could live in those times when letter-writing was so much more common and treasured than now. Reading this book let me realize some of the important values that people nowadays have sometimes forgotten, for instance, the importance of a promise. Besides, what makes this book so neat is that all the stories in this collection are heart-warming and have good endings.

If you have read a book my L.M. Montgomery, you'll really like this book. The stories all go along with the idea of recieving a letter or note. I couldn't put the book down! If you have never read L.M. Montgomery's books read the Anne of Green Gables series first.

As with all of L.M. Montgomery's poignant short stories, many of these left me teary. Even though the endings may be predictable, Montgomery's words give depth to her characters and bring each story about love and loss a richness of feeling that sometimes -- in this age of irony-- we forget that each important event in a person's life deserves.

I have been reading Montgomery's work since I was 12 (now 20 and an English Education Major), and I think that this collection of short stories is her best. The characters and plots are new and intresting. As usual, I felt close to the characters, and by the end of the book, I had made cherished friends.
