Read full description of the books:
Although I have never enjoyed all of the tales featured in L.M. Montgomery's Akin to Anne equally, I do always love, love, love rereading this collection of sweet and tenderly touching, sometimes perhaps even verging a bit on the maudlin short stories (and often engage in a reread when I am feeling down and need comforting and cheer).
Now while I personally simply adore Akin to Anne, I can and do understand and even appreciate why some readers, and even L.M. Montgomery fans, would perhaps consider especially this very collection of tales as rather formulaic and repetitive. However, it should (no actually, it must) also be remembered that these stories were originally published separately, at different times and in a variety of magazines and journals. Thus, L.M. Montgomery did not publish these tales together as a whole. No, they were collected and published as "tales of other orphans" (and thus they all have a similar main theme) by editor Rea Wilmshurst, who I think has done an essential service and marvellous job, amassing and publishing seven distinct thematic L.M. Montgomery short story collections, all featuring not only the presented, collected tales themselves, but enlightening and erudite forewords and available publishing information (and this would likely have continued, had Ms. Wilmshurst not unfortunately died).
And really, the only minor caveat and advice I would tend to give to potential readers (and this actually pertains to all seven books in the Rea Wilmshurst as editor series) is to make sure to read the foreword AFTER having perused the main text, the collected stories, if one wants to avoid possible spoilers (as the introduction is basically a generally rather detailed literary analysis of the tales featured).
