Jane of Lantern Hill
By the same author of Anne of Green Gables, Jane of Lantern Hill (a stand-alone) is a powerful, inspiring, masterfully written story. This is one of my all-time favorite books and contains messages about homemaking, family, love of the Bible, love of nature, compassion, perseverance, and courage. Jane and her mother live in an ugly old house on an ugly old street with Jane’s harsh and stubborn grandmother controlling their lives. When Jane finds out that her father is still alive and wants her to spend the summer with him, her life is changed forever. She falls in love with her father’s little cottage on Prince Edward Island, and she wishes there were some way that she and her parents could all live happily there together. L. M. Montgomery’s lively writing and vibrant description, along with Jane’s loving and persevering spirit, make this a truly worthwhile read.
