Kilmeny of the Orchard is a romance novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery. This novel is full of breathtaking beauty and enchanting music. Courage, determination, patience, and bravery all are stirred exquisitely into the story.
When handsome, popular Eric Marshall meets Kilmeny Gordon one day in a lonely orchard, whose pure beauty he is dazzled by, he is wholly plunged into the mystery of the shy, lovely, but mute Kilmeny. As readers we watch, feeling the warm friendship of Eric and Kilmeny as they grow closer. We watch as Eric learns to love her not only for her beauty but for her innocence, wit, intelligence, and charm, and as their relationship develops into a love sweet and pure but tangled and heartbreaking as well.
Kilmeny of the Orchard will enthrall readers with all its allure, love, hatred, peace, and a heart-pounding climax. The author expertly uses the most fascinating, unique characters and a breathtaking plot to create this amazing novel, with such heart-touching messages of love and this world.
“Love—real love—is never a curse, Kilmeny, ... There is nothing in the world—or in heaven either, as I believe—so truly beautiful and wonderful and blessed as love.”
