At the Altar

Stern parents, awkward circumstances, misunderstandings, lovers' quarrels -- and one very determined cat -- are some of the many hindrances that Montgomery's characters find themselves battling on the way to the altar. But Montgomery helps her lovers overcome these obstacles to true love by a wonderful assortment of means: maiden aunts come to the rescue; two pairs of twins play major roles; a marauding pig is an unusual cupid; the lovers themselves come up with striking solutions. Whatever storms they must weather on the sea of love, whether they are rich or poor, young or old, trembling with romance or properly practical, in Montgomery's hands courting couples seem destined to live "happily ever after." Funny, heartwarming, and full of romance, these eighteen stories are sure to delight Montgomery's many fans.
