Prince Edward Island is a lovely spot between Nova Scotia and Quebec, either chock full of summer vacationers or snow depending on the time of year. It was also the turn of the century home of Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of the beloved Anne of Green Gables (1908). Anne of Green gables is one of the most lovable characters in English fiction, who grew up fully enjoying life on Prince Edward Island.
The character of Anne was known for her spunky independence, a radical departure from the sweet and submissive girls found in turn of the century fiction. Apparently young Japanese women come and visit here in droves as a right of passage to independent adulthood.
