For the Love of Sea View

  Author:   Hilary MacLeod    
  Publisher:  Acorn Press

It all started with a familiar sign: House for Sale: To Be Moved. Family farms on PEI had disappeared in the thousands in the mid-1900s.Tourists would scoop up the farmhouses, fix them up and speak glowingly of the authenticity they had re-introduced to the old building. But this wasn’t a house like those houses. It had started out at Park Corner, on the pond Lucy Maud Montgomery called “The Lake of Shining Waters.” Then it moved up above Brander’s Pond and finally became know as “a little dollhouse” on the Sea View landscape. Once she saw it, Hilary fell in love and couldn’t stop herself from buying it, starting a thirty-year adventure with an Island community she came to love.
