I have a carefully curated collection of around 20 of copies Anne of Green Gables, and the Elly MacKay illustrated cover is one of my favorites. @Tundrabooks #partner ) recently sent me LM Montgomery’s Story Girl duology and when I saw the new covers, I immediately new they were Elly MacKay’s work. . I had to pull down my copy of Anne and set it side by side with this lovely duology just so you could see why I loved Elly’s style when I decided to purchase this Anne for my collection— and why I’m so thrilled to have more of LM Montgomery’s works with those covers. . Have you read “Story Girl”? I spent the evening looking up the background on this book and was incredibly fascinated. Montgomery wrote “Story Girl” while she was engaged to a Presbyterian minister she didn’t love, and you can see some clear moments of her feelings about Presbyterian ministers in this book. There are about 32 different stories told over the course of this book as readers follow the adventures of a group of lung cousins and their friends around Prince Edward Island. . Because I’m such an Anne lover, I often overlook Montgomery’s other works (which number around 23, I believe). I think I’m going to make it a goal to start working my way through her other novels and short stories in the coming years. Montgomery is such a fascinating person to me. . Do you have any classic authors that you reduce to just one of their works? Who are some of your favorites? . Thanks again to @tundrabooks for sending me copies of “Story Girl” and “The Golden Road”. . #storygirl #thegoldenroad #anneofgreengables #ellymackay #lmmontgomery
