After Many Years

There is a new book out by Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of the Anne of Green Gables series.  
Yes, really!  
Two wonderful women gathered some of her long forgotten short stories and put them into a book.
🌟 Guest Post 🌟 Carolyn Strom Collins on the Creation of 
After Many Years
This book was published in Canada on 6 June 2017 by Nimbus Publishing, Halifax, Nova Scotia. 
It is due out in the USA on 7 November 2017
To buy it sooner through the publisher:
Mind you, I already checked and it would be $21.95 from the publisher plus almost $12 to ship it to Vermont, so more than $33.00. If I wait until November it's just $21.95, 
or even $14.15 from Amazon. 
Hard to justify, but so hard to wait!!  But do read the Guest Post!! It's wonderful!

We met Carolyn Collins the last time we visited PEI. As my dear husband had created the newsletter Kindred Spirits, about the works and life of LMM, she took us from Silverbush across the road to the family home (then not yet open to the public), where I photographed the Rosebud Spray Tea Set and the remaining original diety of the hearth (Gog, I think). She also gave me her email address and phone number inviting us to stay in touch ... which I managed to misplace before we got home to Vermont. Lovely to feel reconnected! 

In the Guest Post, Carolyn mentions Rea Wilmshurst.  
I recall that Rea stopped here at our home in Vermont on her way 
from PEI back to Toronto one year, to meet and discuss LMM, 
Kindred Spirits newsletter, and the work Rea was doing.  
That was so long ago (early 90's) that I feel old!

I can't wait to read the book!!

Coates Island

This is Mallets Bay where we sail. That dark land off on the left is Coates Island. For the last 145 years, it has been owned by the Coates Family. There are 40 camps (small cottages) on the island, three of which are currently for sale. On Saturday we got to tour the Island, courtesy of the Coates Family.  So nice!
