For as long as she can remember, Jane Stuart and her mother have lived with her controlling grandmother in a dreary mansion in Toronto. Jane always believed her father was dead, so she was shocked to receive an invitation to stay with him for the summer on Prince Edward Island. But from their very first meeting, Jane fell in love with her charming father and his whimsical cottage. During her stay with him, she even found herself daring to dream that there could be such a house back in Toronto - a house where she, Mother, and Father could live together without Grandmother directing their lives - a house that she could come to call home.

Not Worth an Audible Credit
It was not LMM's best work by any means (by that I mean, not on par with the Anne books or Blue Castle), but perhaps I would have liked it better with a different narrator.
She did not carry the nuance of the story. She was easy enough to listen to, but she did not lend any depth to the characters or credence to the plot line. Also, the performance itself was awful. There were many, many times when phrases were repeated. Once, the narrator mispronounced a word. It was corrected, but we heard both the incorrect pronunciation and then the correct. Bad, bad job on the part of the director and editor!
Buy the book and read it. :)
