the story behind the face: Brenda is a docent at the L. M. Montgomery Birthplace museum in New London on Prince Edward Island. Before we began the tour of the house, she gave us history on the local area, house, and of course our favorite authoress. A native of Prince Edward Island, Brenda mentioned to us that all of her children live off the island, but she knew they would come back home eventually. Apparently, 98% of Islanders return home–roots run strong and deep here.
the story behind the photo: this photo was taken inside of the museum. i asked Brenda to take me to her favorite place in the house and she immediately brought me to a photo of L. M. Montgomery along with a sample of one of her manuscripts. she was a little hesitate to have her photo taken, but i really feel that this photo captures her personality. a bright light of friendliness coupled with a huge desire to tell others of her a favorite author–and dare i say good friend–of hers, Lucy Maud.
