The Golden Road

The lush, evocative chronicles of THE GOLDEN ROAD have that quaint verboseness of post-Victorian times. These "adventures" in no way resemble modern-day childish occupations, though their attitude is timeless. Conlin sustains the idyllic, gossipy quality of Montgomery's story, set on a farm in Carlisle, P.E.I. She projects the sentimental aura of the turn of the century. In today's times, a more "acted" rendering might possibly have provided a wider appeal. Conlin elects to err on the side of caution, thus relinquishing some liveliness. S.E.S.

We enjoyed our walk--even Felix enjoyed it, although he had been appointed to write up the visit for Our Magazine and was rather weighed down by the responsibility of it. What mattered it though the world were gray and wintry? We walked the golden road and carried spring time in our hearts, and we beguiled our way with laughter and jest, and the tales the Story Girl told us--myths and legends of elder time.
Once upon a time we all walked on the golden road. It was a fair highway, through the Land of Lost Delight; shadow and sunshine were blessedly mingled, and every turn and dip revealed a fresh charm and a new loveliness to eager hearts and unspoiled eyes.
On that road we heard the song of morning stars; we drank in fragrances aerial and sweet as a May mist; we were rich in gossamer fancies and iris hopes; our hearts sought and found the boon of dreams; the years waited beyond and they were very fair; life was a rose-lipped comrade with purple flowers dripping from her fingers.
We may long have left the golden road behind, but its memories are the dearest of our eternal possessions; and those who cherish them as such may haply find a pleasure in the pages of this book, whose people are pilgrims on the golden road of youth.
