title bar L.M. Montgomery's Book Covers

A Tangled Web      

     A Tangled Web (1931) Organized comically around a PEI clan members' jealous longing to inherit an heirloom jug, the story exposes the failings and the sometimes ridiculous yearnings of several adults. Some stories have genuine pathos and some deal with vanities and wasted years. This is Montgomery's darkest comedy and yet is still resolved happily for most of the characters. The book was printed in England under the title Aunt Becky Began It.
