    "Jealously, Murder, Love, Oh Yes, A Cat"

    Grace Conlin did full justice to this work. I cannot give high enough praise to her performance. Montgomery's magnificent powers are on full display in these fifteen little stories of love, loss, redemption and human dramas. No one does cat stories better than Lucy Maude Montgomery. My favorites are the cats of Patty's Place in "Anne of the Island", Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in "Rilla of Inglesides" and from this collection "Aunt Cynthia's Persian Cat" is definitely a star. I am only mentioning a few stories that I particularly enjoyed but there are none in this collection that I would have passed up. "Her Father's Daughter" is about a girl on her wedding whose parents had separated years earlier. Actually, her mother had got into a pet and locked the guy out. However, the girl didn't lock her father out and is hell bent on having him at her wedding. In "Jane's Baby", two women get into an all out cat fight over who gets their dead sister's baby. "The Dream Child" is about the loss of a child and how the husband and wife go forth. It is a bit strange but not too. "The Education of Betty", well think of the movie "Daddy Long Legs" with Janet Gaynor. In this case, the book is better. Guess who comes to the wedding in "Only a Common Fellow"? I am not telling. "Tannis of the Flats" is a bit unusual, first there is a murder then most of the story takes place in Alberta instead of the Maritimes. Remember there is a thread in Montgomery's stories that these folks are linked to the sea and to traveling off into the dangerous unknowns. Even sometimes the women folk head west. For instance, Jane Anderson couldn't find a husband in P.E.I. so off she charged to the west country and snagged herself a for real millionaire. This little story also touches the conflicting cultures of the Europeans and the natives. Montgomery did an outstanding job with this one in particular.
