Once she asked him naively, "Are there many people like you out in the world?"
"Thousands of them," said Eric, laughing.
She looked gravely at him. Then she gave her head a quick decided little shake.
"I do not think so," she wrote. "I do not know much of the world, but I do not think there are many people like you in it."
I loved this sweet romance novella from the author of Anne of Green Gables, in which a wealthy young man from the mainland spends a summer on Prince Edward Island and falls in love with a beautiful local girl, perfect in every way but one: she can't speak. It's a really moving story, I loved the descriptions of life on the island, I loved the characters, and I shed a tear when it was over. And this enhanced version features full color artwork. A lovely way to while away a spring afternoon!
