Jane of Lantern Hill
Jane of Lantern Hill | L M Montgomery
Jane and her mother live in a gloomy old mansion, where their lives are ruled by her ovebearing grandmother. For most of her life Jane has believed that her father is dead. Then, one dull April morning, a letter comes. Not only is her father alive and well, but he wants Jane to spend the summer with him on Prince Edward Island. For a blissful summer she lives at her father's cottage on Lantern Hill, making friends, having adventures and discovering that life can be wonderful after all. And she dares to dream that there could be such a house where she, Mother and Father could live together without Grandmother's disapproval - a house that could be called home.

It‘s rhubarb pie season, at last! I enjoyed reading Jane‘s story. Although I deplored the ending, I was delighted by it. A lovely comfort read alongside a slice of pie 🥧

What are some of your favorite quotes or scenes from Jane of Lantern Hill?

Where does this one rank for you in the LMM canon?

Several of you have mentioned this as an old favorite (or a new favorite)—what makes it a favorite for you?

#KindredSpiritsBuddyRead

sblbooks Jane was my favorite LM Montgomery novel ,next to the Anne of Green Gables series. I enjoyed Jane's time with her father on Lantern Hill the best. The quote from question 3 was the best.👇 1mo
Blaire I‘m not doing this read along but for a certain period of time this was the only book my family had on tape and we listened to it on multiple road trips and I adored it. Seeing the title brings back many good memories 1mo
BarbaraJean @sblbooks This whole buddy read is making me reevaluate my rankings of LLM's books! The Blue Castle has always been my favorite, and that hasn't changed... but my second-place spot for the Emily books has been complicated by this re-read. Jane is just slightly below Anne (well, the first book anyway), but not much... and I don't know where to put Emily anymore!! @Blaire I love that your family listened to this on road trips--what lovely memories! 1mo

Daisey I don‘t remember reading this one before, and I don‘t think any will ever replace Anne as my favorite. However, Jane has joined this group of wonderful characters, and I‘m not really sure I could rank them. 1mo
Jerdencon I missed this one too - but going to try to read it and plan to join for the next book and get back on track. 1mo
quietjenn Jane ranks right at the top for me, along with the Blue Castle. And they are both books that I didn't read until I was an adult, which I find interesting. Anne and Emily will always be beloved, but part of my love comes from my childhood association with reading those. I'll be very curious next month, as I've never read Marigold at all! 1mo
mom2bugnbee Until this buddy read, I had only ever read Anne & Emily, though I've been obsessed with them for decades. Stay tuned to see if anyone replaces them. ☺ I liked Jane very much, but Emily is still one & Anne still two at the moment. 1mo
TheAromaofBooks It's hard to replace Anne when we get to see so much more of Anne's life/growth. I would have absolutely loved a sequel to Jane with her heading off to college or some such. I don't love this one as much as The Blue Castle (always my fave) and part of it is because it makes me sad to see how much time Jane's parents wasted with miscommunication and allowing other people to keep them apart. But I do love this one SO much! 1mo
BarbaraJean @Daisey I feel like I can rank LMM‘s books but not her characters! They‘re a lovely group of my book-friends. 😊 @Jerdencon It will be great to have you jump back in! @mom2bugnbee I look forward to your thoughts on the books and characters yet to come! (edited) 4w
BarbaraJean @quietjenn It was my first time reading Jane & will be my first time reading Marigold, too! It‘s interesting how many of these read differently to me now than when I read them as a child or even as a young adult. Blue Castle has held up, but my feelings about certain of the Anne & Emily books have shifted during this buddy read. @TheAromaofBooks Oh, I would have loved a sequel to Jane! Or a companion novel following her parents‘ story. 4w

Like Jane with the Bible, many people are turned off to certain books (or more to the point, religion) because of a bad experience in how they were introduced to it.

Whether it‘s a certain book or something larger like religion—have you had an experience that turned you off to something, that you later re-evaluated and found you connected with after all?

#KindredSpiritsBuddyRead

sblbooks This is a great quote. Poor Jane was so traumatized by her grandmother, berating her every time she made a mistake. It's no wonder she felt that way. I'm thankful I never had that situation. I love that her dad introduced her to Bible reading in a whole new way. 1mo
BarbaraJean @sblbooks I loved the whole passage following this quote where he talks about all the “corking stories“ and “'human' human nature“ that are in the Bible! And then the whole series of gorgeous quotes that really highlights the beautiful literature that's in the Bible. It was such a lovely moment, and for me, demonstrated how often people get turned off to faith/God because of some awful misrepresentation like Jane had from her grandmother. 1mo
quietjenn This passage was so lovely. I've definitely had experiences similar to this, where my appreciation of something - or inability to appreciate something - was colored by my associations with it. 1mo
TheAromaofBooks I love this quote and how it illustrates her dad reintroducing her to the Bible and also other subjects - Jane becomes much more interested in geography, history, science, astronomy, etc. because her dad shows her that learning can be engaging and exciting. It's so horrible when adults use religion and/or education as a punishment and I loved seeing the tables turned on Grandmother! 1mo

What do you think of Jane as a protagonist?
She‘s not as prone to scrapes as Anne, her independence comes much more gradually than Valancy, and she‘s far more practical than Emily. What attracts you to Jane?

#KindredSpiritsBuddyRead

Bkwrm7 I like Jane's helping nature and enjoyment of gaining competence as she learns how to do things although occasionally she felt maybe just a little too perfect and capable. 1mo
julieclair I love her positive attitude, and her true desire to learn the skills necessary to make a house into a welcoming home. 1mo
sblbooks I love Jane, she is less dramatic than other protagonist. She starts out very timid, due to her upbringing. I love how grows throughout the novel. 1mo
See All 8 Comments
BarbaraJean @sblbooks I did so love her growth throughout the book! I loved seeing her learn to stand up for herself, finding her own inner strength. @Bkwrm7 She does seem a little too capable, too often! I would have actually loved to see a few mishaps in the kitchen--more than the one or two tiny pitfalls we are shown. 1mo
Daisey I agree with @sblbooks that Jane seems less dramatic than other Montgomery protagonists and I think this helps me better connect to her in some ways. I also appreciated that she did have so much growth in this story. 1mo
quietjenn I really love Jane. As much as I adore other LMM heroines, I do sometimes think that they can be a little bit too twee, and that was never the case with Jane. I like that she's so practical and straight-forward and in many ways she feels more real and average than others, in a good way. 1mo
TheAromaofBooks I really love Jane and her practical outlook on life - I think part of the reason she's less inclined to “scrapes“ is because she isn't nearly as imaginative as Anne or Emily. I do feel like she's written older than she is - she seems more mature than any 11-year-olds I know! 1mo
BarbaraJean @quietjenn @TheAromaofBooks I loved Jane‘s practical nature as well. I love Anne‘s daydreams and Emily‘s intensity, but there‘s something refreshing and comfortable about Jane‘s practicality. 4w

This book has several of LMM‘s common themes: the overbearing family who doesn‘t understand, the orphaned or isolated child who finds a new home, a quarrel/misunderstanding between lovers, childhood antics, joy in the natural world.
Are you drawn to these themes in fiction?
In reading Jane, did you see LMM developing these themes further or differently than in other LMM books we‘ve read? Or did you find them repetitive?

#KindredSpiritsBuddyRead

Bkwrm7 I'm definitely drawn to some of these themes which is part of why I come back to Montgomery over and over again. Childhood antics, joy in the natural world and found family are some that I generally enjoy. Quarreling lovers I could take or leave though. 1mo
julieclair Like @Bkwrm7 , I really enjoy the childhood antics and joy in the natural world. I find these themes to be so uplifting. They are a good contrast to the more challenging themes in many of the books I read. 1mo
sblbooks I too, enjoy the childhood Antics and joy of the natural world in Montgomery's novels. Orphan is a buzzword for me.😊 1mo
See All 8 Comments
BarbaraJean @Bkwrm7 @julieclair @sblbooks I love the childhood antics in LMM's books & in fiction in general. What's interesting is I'm not particularly drawn to nature writing, but I LOVE the way LMM describes natural beauty as well as how it's such a deep love for her characters. In this novel, I noticed how the rural setting is such a contrast between the controlling grandmother in the city, and the freedom of Lantern Hill (and how Jane thrives there!). (edited) 1mo
Daisey I love the joy and humor that always seems to find its way into Montgomery‘s books, as well as the way she describes the natural world. 1mo
quietjenn I definitely enjoy those common themes of Montgomery's, in both her writing and in other books. Except maybe the nature writing, which I think I appreciate rather than always enjoy. And so much yes to the humor and joy that @Daisey notes. 1mo
TheAromaofBooks One of the things I really love about Montgomery's writing is the way her younger protagonists are still very independent and determined to DO SOMETHING - even when Jane is downtrodden she still has flashes of rebellion. I also love your point @BarbaraJean about the restriction of the city vs the freedom of the countryside and how the descriptions match that theme - I hadn't noticed that before, but it's quite true. 1mo
BarbaraJean @TheAromaofBooks Yes, absolutely—the agency and determination LMM gives her characters is very satisfying. With Emily, Valancy, and Jane especially, they‘re trapped by others‘ rules and expectations but they all break free both internally and externally. I do think the city vs. countryside theme is a common one for LMM—so many of her characters (Emily, Anne) HAVE to seek out natural beauty as a comfort when they‘re in more urban settings. 4w

Another winner from L. M. Montgomery. Jane is living with her mom, grandmother and aunt. Her grandmother rules everybody and expects to be obeyed at all times. One day a letter from Jane‘s dad arrives inviting her to spend the summer at P. E. Island with him. Jane accepts and everything changes for her and everyone around her.
This all the Montgomery ingredients for a great novel.

This is another L.M. Montgomery book I don‘t remember ever reading before, and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it today. Yes, it was a bit predictable and the quick resolution at the end was a bit unsatisfactory, but it also included the humor, variety of characters, and descriptions of nature that I love about Montgomery‘s writing.

Oh, Jane was a delight! So many classic L.M. Montgomery themes: the overbearing relatives who don‘t understand the delightful child in their care, the romantic quarrel/misunderstanding, quirky and lovable supporting characters in a rural setting, and lovely descriptions of PEI‘s natural beauty. And of course the ending was not surprising, but I loved it all the same! Looking forward to the #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead discussion next Saturday!

I drew a random title from the windowsill pile to break up my Lunar Chronicles reading and was quite happy with this month's #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead was picked. This is a childhood favorite that I hadn't read in decades and I was glad to have the nudge to pick it up for a reread!!

Jane actually holds up pretty well over time. This and The Blue Castle are two of my favorite Montgomery's, and they have some similar themes of a dreary home life ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) at the beginning of the book and the eventual escape to a more independent and fulfilling life. Jane gains confidence as she learns to embrace what she loves. She does seem a bit young to do all the things she does, but her sturdy can-do attitude, strong sense of justice, and delightful sense of humor once again won me over. There are so many fun side characters sketched in just a few perfect sentences as well. As an adult, I wish that ⬇ 1mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) the ending was a little less abrupt, but you can't have everything!

My childhood copy of this book disappeared so I was forced to order this lovely Virago edition. When it arrived it screamed for a reread and I was so pleased that I loved it every bit as much as I did as a child.

I was away for the week on a much-needed, off-grid vacation, and while I was there, I read Jane of Lantern Hill for the first time. Where has this delightful book been all my life?! Seeing Jane find both herself and, eventually, her family, was so rewarding. L.M. Montgomery, I continue to bow down! #vacationread #lmmontgomery

First time reading this sweet book. ❤️ I really liked the narrator for this specific edition but I was so disappointed in the editing of it. Too many repeated lines that should have been cut in editing.

(Another great song! Love the Cowboy Junkies and Margo Timmins' voice!)

Cinfhen You and @karenuk seem to like the same music 🎶 I‘m not familiar with a lot of these songs 🤷🏼‍♀️ 3y
merelybookish @Cinfhen We are definitely music twins. When I saw her playlist, I was amazed. It could be one I made! 3y
Bkwurm So many great covers! Jane of Lantern Hill is one of the few LM Montgomery books I haven‘t read. I guess I better get reading! 3y

jewright L. M. Montgomery is my favorite author. I wrote my grad school casebook on Rilla of Ingleside. (edited) 3y
LeahBergen 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I have the edition at the top (centre). 3y
Reviewsbylola I‘m not familiar with this one but I will definitely check it out! And of course you do! @LeahBergen I actually assumed this was your post at first. 🤣🤣 3y
merelybookish @Bkwurm I have only read it once and am thinking I am due a re-read! 3y
merelybookish @jewright Mine too! I wrote about her in grad school as well. 🙂 3y

I‘ve been nursing a pressure headache all day, so it was a half day of work for me. After an afternoon nap (always seems to help with headaches), I‘m settled in with a cup of darjeeling tea with fresh lemon slices, and another delightful novel by one of my all time favourite authors, L. M. Montgomery. Anne will always be my kindred spirit, but Montgomery‘s lesser known heroines, such as Jane and Marigold have a special place in my heart as well.

HotCocoaReads Oh, I loved this one! 3y
catebutler @HotCocoaReads I remember you reading this one, Jeana! I know you spoke highly of it. I‘m only a few chapters in, but it‘s such a delicious read. I love how Montgomery speaks to your soul. 3y
Graywacke Headaches, yuck. That was my Tuesday evening. Hope you‘re feeling better. 3y

catebutler @Graywacke They are definitely miserable! I‘m sorry to hear you dealt with one earlier this week. Mine has receded, so it‘s bearable, I‘m hoping it‘s fully gone by tomorrow. Fingers crossed. 🤞🏼 3y
LeahBergen I do hope you‘re a fan of Emily, as well. 😉 3y
catebutler @LeahBergen Definitely! She and Anne are my top favourites. I always hear people say they like one or the other best. 3y
youneverarrived How pretty is that cover 😍😍 3y
catebutler @youneverarrived VMC have the best covers! This one fits perfectly with the book. 🌸 3y
rubyslippersreads I agree with @LeahBergen about Emily, but it‘s been ages since I‘ve read Jane. Might be time for a reread. 😊 3y
UwannaPublishme Hope you‘re feeling better! 🤗🌻 3y
catebutler @rubyslippersreads Yes, Emily is my second favourite after Anne. I hope you get to reread soon! 3y
catebutler @UwannaPublishme I am, thank you! Today was so much better, here‘s hoping the headache stays away. 3y
Eggs I love your book-and-food pix!!! 3y
catebutler @Eggs Thank you! 💓 3y

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. @rubyslippersreads #kindlitsy. It nearly sent me to tears. I love Montgomery and I have not read Jane since I was a child. I cannot wait to share this with my little girls.

rubyslippersreads You‘re so welcome! Hope you and your girls enjoy. 😊❤️ 4y

Oh my—I loved this story so much! How sweet that it revolves around the relationship between a girl and her dad. And the ending 😢 Could this be better than Anne of GG?

Mehso-so

I enjoyed this! LM Montgomery‘s books are pretty simple, and the end was tied up with a nice bow, but I still enjoyed it, overall

Didn't think I was going to find #startswithj titles on my shelves, but the Janes came to the rescue! I recently replaced my old copy of Jane of Lantern Hill with this beauty - Jane Eyre is still on my list for replacement with a prettier copy. #anditsaugust

rubyslippersreads ❤️❤️❤️ both of these! 5y

This is another favorite #childhoodread by LM Montgomery. I loved Jane and still think of her every time I see a Persian cat. #riotgrams
