Mistress Pat

Mistress Pat by L.M. Montgomery, cover art by Marie Lawson, published in 1935 by McClelland and Stewart.

L.M. Montgomery’s Mistress Pat was first published in 1935 as the sequel to Pat of Silver Bush. The protagonist Pat Gardiner is now twenty years old and the mistress of her beloved home Silver Bush on Prince Edward Island. Pat chooses to remain at home instead of leaving for school, work, or marriage, and she’s deeply afraid of change.

Despite Pat's attempts to retain stable traditions at Silver Bush, which give her a sense of security, life brings many changes. Often these changes are difficult for Pat to face and cope with. For instance, her brother Sid marries a woman Pat despises, and the pair live at Silver Bush making Pat’s home life less pleasant. Her childhood friend Hilary Gordon, who has left for college and work, eventually stops writing to her. Over time, Pat begins to question her decisions.

Pat of Silver Bush

Pat of Silver Bush, Stokes, 1933

Pat of Silver Bush (1933) is the first of two novels that make up the Pat of Silver Bush series by L.M. Montgomery. The protagonist Patricia Gardiner is highly sensitive to her environment. She loves her home and the people around her, and it hurts her to see her world change. Pat contrasts with Anne Shirley and Emily Starr in that she is not an orphan, and she has grown up with a stable home life that she deeply values and clings to.

Pat of Silver Bush is followed by the sequel Mistress Pat.

Anne3.com (Sullivan Entertainment) Forum Keeperships

Anne3.com Forum Keeperships


I originally posted a Keeperships topic at the Anne3.com Forum hosted by Sullivan Entertainment on April 18, 2000. Later, the forum was known as the Avonlea Message Board and the Sullivan Entertainment Message Board. Sadly, the forum is gone now. I miss the days of conversation, friendship, and fun that took place there.

In returning to my old website, I thought I'd repost the keeperships here as an archive. I can't believe that the list is 250 keeperships long. Please note that this keeperships listing is no longer being updated.

Here are a few details on the keeperships list:

Keeperships are special treasures that we protect and care for, and we are called "keepers" of these items. All of our keeperships are from the Anne of Green Gables novels or Sullivan Entertainment Anne of Green Gables miniseries, Road to Avonlea, and other L.M. Montgomery novels and adaptations.

Some keeperships were created using screencaptures from friends at the Anne3.com Forum and from Avonlea Vignettes, Avonlea.hu, Lantern Hill, Anne of Green Gables, the Road to Avonlea Guide, and Megan Follows UK.
