Item Description...
Overview
The never-changing ways of Silver Bush are of great comfort to Patricia Gardner, but when she develops scarlet fever, copes with her mother's illness, and falls in love, tremendous changes occur.

Publishers Description
Patricia Gardiner loved Silver Bush more than anything else in the world. She was born and raised in the beautiful old-fashioned house on Prince Edward Island, "where things always seemed the same" and good things never changed. But things do change at Silver Bush--from her first day at school to the arrival of her new own first romance. Through it all, Pat shares her experiences with her beloved friends and discovers the one thing that truly never changes: the beauty and peace she will always find at Silver Bush--the house that remembers her whole life.

More About L.M. Montgomery

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942) was born in the village of Clifton (now New London) on Prince Edward Island in Canada. She was brought up by her grandparents after her mother died when she was two. Later her father moved away to Saskatchewan, where he remarried, and when she spent some months in his new home she was not happy. 'I do not think', she wrote, 'that the majority of grownups have any real conception of the tortures sensitive children suffer over any marked difference between themselves and the other denizens of their small world.'

While working as a reporter for the Halifax Daily Echo, she wrote Anne of Green Gables in the evenings over a period of eighteen months and when it was rejected by four publishers she put it away for two years. Then she revised it and a Boston publisher accepted it at once. When it appeared in 1908 the book proved so popular that ever afterwards she felt constrained by the public's constant demand for more stories about Anne. She did write five sequels - as well as many other novels - and they made her rich, but none reached the classic status of the first.

In 1911 she married Ewan Macdonald. She had two sons; she enjoyed fame and was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1935. She died in Toronto in 1942 and was buried in Cavendish Cemetery, not far from her birthplace.

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in 1874 and died in 1942.

A Wonderful Book!  May 19, 2007
This great book by L.M. Montgomery touched my heart deeply the first time I read it and even after reading it MULTIPLE times it still tugs at my heartstrings. It's a book about simpler times, love of the Lord, family and home. There are also many love stories in the book. You'll root for some lovers and grit your teeth at others. Be sure to also read Mistress Pat.
 
Great book  Apr 2, 2003
This book is pretty wonderful. It's not quite as good as the Anne and Emily books, but it is one that I love to re-read every so often. I can identify with Pat and her love for her home and not wanting things to change, but dealing with the changes and learning to get along in the world. The descriptions are great, and there are many funny and touching episodes. I also enjoy Judy's Irish dialect, it makes her a fun character. This is definitely a must-read if you like Anne and Emily and the others. However, the sequel, Mistress Pat, was not very good at all. I've only read that one once, but it was boring and seemed a bit pointless. But Pat of Silver Bush is excellent and highly recommended.
 
A Delightful Coming of Age  May 2, 2002
Although Pat of Silverbush is not L.M. Montgomery's biggest triumph, it performs up to expectations. The story is firmly rooted in reality as it tells the story of Pat Gardiner, her family, and life at Silverbush, Pat's beloved home. The book follows Pat's expansive imagination in her childhood, and then her struggles to accept change as her family changes as she grows older. The book ends when Pat is eighteen, but her story is picked up in Mistress Pat (which I have not yet read). The book does slow down at times, and there are a few predictable events, but overall this is a charming story about a farming family on PE Island that will bring a sigh of contentment out of any reader.
 
My favorite LMM novel so far  Feb 15, 2002
I have read the entire Anne series, The Blue Castle, Kilmeny of the Orchard, The Story Girl and The Golden Road...but Pat of Silver Bush touched me in a way that none of the other novels did. The book follows Patricia Gardiner from age seven to age eighteen, but does not seem rushed. There is no complicated plot involving secret identities and there is very little melodrama, in my opinion. Pat of Silver Bush is "character-driven" and realistic. It celebrates the beauty of home and of everyday life. Over and over, the descriptions made me shiver and sigh. The episode in which Pat gets lost after running away from her aunt's house and meets Jingle on the road is wonderful. I sympathized with Pat's fear and with her relief and, finally, with the overwhelming joy she feels when she arrives home and sees the windows all lit up. When Pat stayed out after dark with her friends (or alone) I could almost feel the way the evening air would brush against my cheeks and shoulders if I were out on a summer night on Prince Edward Island. Pat's friendship with Bets is sweet and realistic. It made me think, "Every kid should have at least one really close friend like that." Pat's infatuations with different boys when she is a teenager are also realistic...they reminded me of some of my own experiences, even though I was a teenager in the 1990's! If you are a sensitive person who delights in little pleasures (and if you like a book that will make you cry), read Pat of Silver Bush. The only thing about the book that got annoying at times was Judy's dialect. I think readers can imagine an Irish brogue without constantly seeing it spelled out phonetically. I won't dock my rating any stars for it, though. It can be distracting, but it doesn't really take away from the novel.
 
Good, but kind of plodding along....  Nov 12, 2000
I think this book was very good, but not quite as good as the Annes&Emilys, althought Montgomery confesses she acts more like herself in Pat Silver Bush. Patricia Gardiner her given name, is interesting, but not like Anne is. And yes, indeed, Judy is funny. But this book just doesn't quite have the charm and imagination and fun read as Anne. I suggest that you read the Anne and Emily's first, then please read Pat of Silver Bush, though it really is Stellar for Montgomery's later work :-)
