When twenty-four-year-old Eric Marshall arrives on Prince Edward Island to become a substitute schoolmaster, he has a bright future in his wealthy family’s business. Eric has taken the two-month teaching post only as a favor to a friend—but fate throws in his path a beautiful, mysterious girl named Kilmeny Gordon. With jet black hair and sea blue eyes, Kilmeny immediately captures Eric’s heart. But Kilmeny cannot speak, and Eric is concerned for and bewitched by this shy, sensitive mute girl. For the first time in his life, Eric must work hard for something he wants badly, and there is nothing he wants more than for Kilmeny to return his love.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A romance as wholesome as the bread and milk that the hero eats at dusk…The story is as refreshing—and perhaps rather more stimulating—as a drink from a cool spring set back from the novel reader’s dusty road.”

    Independent (New York)

  • “A story born in the heart of Arcadia and brimful of the sweet and simple life of the primitive environment.”

    Boston Herald

  • Kilmeny of the Orchard is a story of decidedly unusual conception and interest, and will rival this author’s earlier works in popularity.”

    Kalamazoo Evening Press

  • Kilmeny of the Orchard is a book of rare quality, difficult to describe but evident to those who have eyes to see.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lindsay | 2/4/2014

    " A sweet, quick read that is perhaps a bit old-fashioned, Kilmeny of the Orchard offers beautiful imagery and a story of unconditional love. Although a bit predictable and laden with parts that made me feel more was needed (i.e. more sympathy for Neil, more experience of the real world for Kilmeny's part), I couldn't put it down and thought that, once again, Lucy Maud Montgomery delivered an enchanting story. "

    " I just read this on the online gutenberg project to kill time at the office, expecting to enjoy it, because I love Montgomery despite her floweriness. Kilmeny was rather over-the-top romantic and flowery, but I liked it all the same. I can't decide if that is Montgomery's fault or mine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Delicious Strawberry | 1/31/2014

    " While this didn't pique my interest as much as Anne of Green Gables or the Blue Castle, this is a solid read, and a great short story by Ms. Montgomery. If you've enjoyed her series and stand-alone books, then you will definitely enjoy this. It's a nice, short (not overly so) love story between what seems like an unlikely couple :) "

    " This one was pretty dated (and a bit racist) and the resolution was obvious/not very satisfying. However, I don't really read LM Montgomery for her plots but for her descriptions of characters and places. She makes pre World War 1 Canada seem like a wild flower filled wonderland. It's a cute love story full of pretty prose. "
