The morning of December 30th brought a blanket of snow and four kindred spirits to the Leaskdale site.  Nathalie, who celebrated a birthday in September, treated her friends to a special morning tour of the Manse and Church – all the while imagining Maud’s life – especially without electricity or plumbing!  They told Anna, Nathalie’s mother, and myself, what they “liked” after reading Maud’s entries in her own “I’ll tell you what I like” scrapbook.  And when they left, each carrying a miniature of Anne Shirley, similar in age, I knew I was witnessing the departure of four of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s kindred spirits.

Seated in Maud’s church pew are Nicolle, Nathalie, Bianca and Zoe

I cannot remember the time when I was not writing, or when I did not mean to be an author image
