The Blythes are Quoted by L.M. Montgomery
Before I give my Teaser I wanted to share a little synopsis of The Blythes are Quoted:
The Blythes Are Quoted is the last work of fiction by the internationally celebrated author of Anne of Green Gables. Intended by L.M. Montgomery to be the ninth volume in her bestselling series featuring her beloved heroine Anne – and delivered to her publisher on the very day she died – it has never before been published in its entirety.In this story "A Dream Comes True" the main character, Anthony Fingold really feels he hasn't had any adventure happen in his life and he is determined he isn't trading in his nightshirt for pyjamas! Anthony comes to realize that sometimes having our dreams come true isn't all that we thought it would be.
I have included a few more teasers than normal, but these lines just tickled my funny bone! Here they are:
Did she thing ginger cookies a substitute for impassioned longing and mad, wild, glamorous adventures? Then she added insult to injury by remarking that Carter Flagg was offering bargains in pyjamas! p. 176
And had William Tell ever worn pyjamas? Not very likely. p. 178
He often told himself he would be willing to die any death you could think of if he could but once have touched her beautiful hand. He never dared ask himself the question...Would he have been willing to have worn pyjamas for her sake? p. 184If you are interested in this story and can't find The Blythes are Quoted this story is also available in The Road to Yesterday by L.M. Montgomery. It is a shorter version of The Blythes Are Quoted.
