The Golden Road

The Golden Road

L.M. Montgomery

Date: 1913   —   Book

product page


Fiction, Children's

This is an atmospheric novel. It only exists to give a flavor of life during a particular period. I cannot recall a single coherent plotline from beginning to end, just little episodes in the history of the King children. Actually, in many ways it reminds me of parts of Little Women, though that had an overall structure.

This isn't bad, and I will track down the first of the two, but it is certainly not the sort of book to use in teaching plot.
