Why do I love this book so much? It has to be it's heroine, who begins as a shy, obedient daughter and blossoms into a complex woman who gains the courage to follow her heart. Against her mother's wishes, she breaks free from the post Victorian tyranny of what is proper, and nurses a dying girl. Believing her life will be short, she launches on a journey of following her own wishes for once. I guess what is so captivating is she is so believable, and evolves in a way that makes you want to read it again and again. Humor and incredible natural beauty described in the classic style of LM Montgomery. MUST READ AGAIN!
