This week I read “Anne’s House of Dreams” and “Rainbow Valley” by L.M. Montegomery. What did I learn from my reading. That a sweet simple plot can be completely compelling when excellant writing, humor, and marvelous voice is used. The plot is just everyday life, from 100 years ago. But so many hilarious everyday things occur and they are told with skilled storytelling. These are great books. It is not necessarily what you say, but how you say it.
