Further Chronicles of Avonlea - L.M. Montgomery Awful attitudes are so fore-fronted in this book, so much so that nostalgia can't save it. Sacrifice lauded above all common sense, women are bitter and/or tragic old maids without a man, and the overt racism, which in a lot of Montgomery is by omission as she much prefers to write about her white main characters, is the core of one story about - you guessed it - one woman's redemption through sacrifice and another's long, lonely man-less life.
