A-Z Wednesday

A-Z Wednesday is hosted by Vicky of Reading at the Beach. To join, look here.

This weeks letter is: K

Kilmeny of the Orchard by L.M. Montgomery

Book Description:
To the small village of Lindsay on Prince Edward Island come Eric Marshall, a twenty-four-year-old substitute schoolmaster. Dark and handsome, the son of a wealthy merchant, Eric has a bright future in the family business and has taken the two-month teaching post only as a favor to a friend.
Then fate, which has been more than generous to Eric, throws in his path a beautiful, mysterious girl named Kilmeny Gordon. With jet-black hair and the face of a Renaissance Madonna, Kilmeny immediately captures the young man's heart. But she is mute, cannot speak, and Eric is concerned for and bewitched by this shy, sensitive, blue-eyed girl.
For the first time in his life Eric must work hard for something he wants badly. And there is nothing he wants more than for Kilmeny to return his love.

My thoughts:
Okay, I was really digging for a "K" book, but I am sure now I'll start spotting different "K" books. I KNOW I read Kilmeny of the Orchard years ago when I was a teenager, but when I was reading through the book description it didn't even ring a bell! I guess I will have to add it to my TBR pile since now I need to know what happens.

  8. OOh -- I read all the Anne books, but I'm not sure I read this one, because it doesn't sound familiar to me either.
