A sweet and moving romance from the author of the beloved Anne of Green Gables series! Eric Marshall is all that a well brought-up young man should be. Handsome, steadfast, and full of ambition, he is expected to expand the Marshall&Company empire and to marry a woman suitable to replace his mother in Nova Scotia’s finest circles. Eric has a bright future in the family business and has taken the two-month teaching post on Prince Edward Island only as a favor to a sick friend. Then fate, which has been more than generous to Eric, throws in his path a beautiful, mysterious girl named Kilmeny Gordon. Mute since birth, she lives sequestered at home with her aunt and uncle who the town considers odd. Soon after that first meeting, a friendship between the two begins to bloom towards love.
