Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.
– L.M. Montgomery
Canadian writer Lucy Maud Montgomery’s most enduring character is the irrepressible Anne-with-an-e, who remains so popular that Prince Edward Island, where the Anne of Green Gables series is set, is now a popular destination for literary tourists. Montgomery was born there 139 years ago.
