Jane of Lantern Hill      

     Jane of Lantern Hill (1937) Set partly in Toronto and partly on Prince Edward Island, this late novel is a celebration of domesticity and the domestic management skills that liberate a young girl of separated parents. Jane develops a love for PEI along with her love for cooking and cleaning, and works to reunite her mother and father. Does the original book cover suggest her new-found freedom or strength? The novel was dedicated to Montgomery's beloved cat: "To the Memory of 'Lucky' the Charming, Affectionate Comrade of Fourteen Years."
