For Anne and Gilbert Blythe, life in a small village is never dull because of all the enterataining gossip, and what strange and funny tales they hear: about the mischievous twins whose dearest wish comes true when they meet up with a bored and haunted millionaire; or clever Penelope Craig, who considers herself an expert on children--until she adopts a boy of her own; or Timothy Randebush, a man so eager to keep his brother out of the clutches of a dangerous woman that he spirits her away--only to fall prey to her charms himself. Filled with unexpected surprises, laughter, and tears, here are fourteen of the Blythes' favourite tales.

Quite enjoyed this read with the Blythes sprinkled throughout. I may have just read it once, long ago as I did not remember any of it. I'm glad I picked it up for a summer (re)read. It was nice and light. There was a good mix of humor, heart wrenching, dark and sweetness in the stories.

"The Road to Yesterday, also published known as The Blythes are Quoted (which, however, contains interludes of the conversations between the Blythe family) is a collection of fourteen short stories taking place from the time of Anne of Ingleside to beyond Rilla of Ingleside.
The stories, humorous and serious, witty and dark by turns, take place in the village of Glen St. Mary, the Blythe family cast as side characters or references. Not only do the stories emit references and previously unknown details to the beloved Anne series, delighting readers anxious to know the events after Rilla of Ingleside, but they have a strong and vivid charm on their own. Each story is unique and will touch upon a new group of characters in yet another corner of the village, with a theme just as unique and powerful. It is rather astonishing seeing so many different concepts and secrets of life are alive, lurking in every corner of this village, painted brilliantly by the author.
Full of powerful messages and tender smiles, The Road to Yesterday will reward readers with a sense of depth and wit instilled slowly through the fourteen vibrant tales. This novel may deal with subjects darker than the typical ones dealt with in her novels, but nevertheless is recommended for passionate readers of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novels.

This book is a collection of short stories. All of them were really good, but then, I love everything by Montgomery.
