Pat of Silver Bush
(1933) Pat Gardiner hates change, especially any threatened change to her
beloved home, Silver Bush. This is the first of two Pat books, showing Pat's
childhood in a beautiful farmhouse (modeled on Montgomery's Campbell cousins'
home in Park Corner, PEI, where she spent many holidays and was married
in 1911). Pat tries in vain to hold back time. Her childhood friend, Hilary
Gordon (Jingle), has a gift for drawing houses. Judy Plum, the Irish woman
who cooks for the Gardiners and is a trusted confidante, fills the novel
with dialect and anecdote.
