あらすじ・解説

Twenty-four-year-old Eric Marshall arrives on Prince Edward Island to become a substitute schoolmaster, even though 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, he must work hard for something he wants badly. And there is nothing he wants more than for Kilmeny to return his love.

Charming.

In true Montgomery fashion, a cute little story with simplicity, old-fashioned charm and romance.

Concerts for Two in the Apple Orchard

While not quite at the level of "Rilla of Inglesides" or "Anne of Green Gables", this is a pretty decent little romantic story of triumph over personal adversity. Like every Montgomery tale I've read, this is set in the Maritime Providences. I love Grace Conlin's voice. It is deep, musical and marvelously plays Lucy Maude Montgomery's wind in tree tops, the smell of flowers, the scent of spring, color of sunset clouds, the royal splendor of apple blossoms, feel of rain drops on one's face and the sparkle of dew in the morning sunlight. Montgomery attention to nature reminds me a bit of Elizabeth von Arnim's books such as "The Enchanted April", "The Solitary Summer" and "Elizabeth's German Garden". One is aware of every tiny breeze and the perfume of the smallest flower. Their stories are so restful, the humor is gentle and romance is tenderly unobtrusive.

I know that my next statement will get me in trouble but I boldly go on because I tell only the truth. Today, Kilmeny Gordon's handicap would be viewed as a positive attraction to most men. Indeed, one would be willing to pay extra for the benefit of a silent wife. Ah...blessed peace and quiet at home. One would never have to know what the neighbors are doing. It is interesting to see how our attitudes have changed in the last hundred years. Far from being an outcast, Kilmeny would be a positive star today. Even then, most of the obstacles in this story were in the mind. I am with Eric Marshall, the hero, I think they could have been braved and subdued.

Narrator's pronunciation is horrid!

I loved the book, but the narrator needs some help. She read in a very southern accent (book's setting is Canada) and mispronounced the main character's name the entire book. Annoying!

Love the book, can't stand the narration

The book itself is excellent, but the narrator kills me. I'm an L.M. Montgomery fan and collector of her 1st editions. Having visited Prince Edward Island, I never met anyone who spoke with the Southern accent with which Ms. Conlin narrates the book. The most distracting thing was the mispronunciation of Kilmeny. It's KIL-mah-nee not Kill-many! If you have never read this book before, skip the audio and go for the text.

a mixed bag of a book

I liked Grace Conlins narration performance pretty well. The story itself was short,simple,romantic and quite lovely in many ways. Certain parts I did find just silly and others both offensive and a bit racist, though. This is not an unproblematic book. But there were several likeable details ,parts and characters as well. Montgomerys descriptions were poetic and flowery as always,Even though her prose lacked some of the ease and flow she later got so very good at. Overall the book was worth a listen,but it won't become a new favourite of mine.

Boring, vapid, too long

This little love story is nothing like Anne of Green Gables. It has none of the humor, charm, or action adventure. Just so boring. I like to read about people overcoming an impairment, but even though Kilmeny is mute, the greatest focus is placed on her beauty, innocence, purity, her expression via violin, etc.

So very charming!

I absolutely love this story; in the narration was really great. most of the way through I found myself wondering why I had never heard of this story before and why it hadn't gotten us famous as LM Montgomery's other works.

...then I met the author's description and then resolution of Neil Gordon; And I realized it sounds pretty racist! It was a different time; And I would never condone talking about any race in that way; It's too bad this book couldn't be edited and re-released to be more appropriate because the story is just wonderful.
