Read full description of the books:
There are several extremely sad stories in this collection, I think because LMM always thought that the sea itself sounds sad. Mackereling Out on the Gulf, for instance, does not end in a happy ending for the hero, but it is very moving. Others are simply hopeless (The Waking of Helen, A Strayed Allegiance), yet they hold beauty. Most of the stories are actually funny and end happily. I love A Sandshore Wooing and Fair Exchange and No Robbery. The Unhappiness of Miss Farquhar holds a moral that everyone would do well to remember.
It's a bit disappointing that LMM used some of the stories word for word for her novels. Of course I would prefer that she took the time to invent brand new characters and plots for her novels, but I know she was often pressed for time and struggled with depresion--thus I can excuse her. And really, A Soul That Was Not At Home features Paul Irving's character, but the plot has nothing similar to his story in Anne of Avonlea.
Previous to this second rereading, I found this collection to be a little tiring because many of the stories involve a beautiful heroine who strikes a man dumb with her wonderful beauty. I didn't mind it as much this time. I focused on the themes of the stories more than the character details. As a result, I am much more favorably disposed toward the collection than before. It worthily holds its place beside LMM's other delightful short story collections. Much wisdom and inspiration is to be found by reading it.
The stories I like best in it are Fair Exchange and No Robbery, Four Winds, A Sandshore Wooing, and The Unhappiness of Miss Farquhar.
