This is one of my all-time favorite fairy-tale love stories. No, it's not realistic, and Eric and Kilmeny have precious few faults, at least that we are told about. But I don't think that it's because they don't have any... it's just a love story... not the story of their lives.
Eric is awed by Kilmeny's music, first... and then he is wowed by her beauty. And then, as the weeks go by and they spend hours together every day, they fall in love.
This is a beautiful story, exquisitely told. We are not drawn into the conversations that they have, and the details of how they get to know each other. We are simply allowed to feel the admiration and respect and love that they come to feel for each other. And that is more than enough for me.
A huge fan of L.M. Montgomery, I know I'm in for a treat whenever I pick up one of her books. This one was no exception. It was a sweet love story, quite short; nice when you don't have a lot of time on your hands but want to read a satisfying story.
