"I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I've never been able to believe it. I don't believe a rose would be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk-cabbage."
This article is about a short story collection. You may be looking for "The Road to Yesterday", a short story of the same name.

The Road to Yesterday is a short story collection by L. M. Montgomery. First published in 1974, it is an abridged version of her 1942 work The Blythes Are Quoted, which had been submitted for publication on the day of Montgomery's death, but rejected by the publisher (likely due to its anti-war tone). The original Blythes Are Quoted manuscript would not be published in its entirety until 2009. While Blythes Are Quoted is now considered the ninth and final book in the Anne of Green Gables series, the Road to Yesterday version is not, placing it alongside the two Chronicles of Avonlea collections are not being full Green Gables books, despite Anne playing a larger role than in the other books.


For Anne and Gilbert Blythe, life in a small village is never dull because of all the entertaining gossip, and what strange and funny tales they hear: about the mischievous twins whose dearest wish comes true when they meet up with a bored and haunted millionaire; or clever Penelope Craig, who considers herself an expert on children — until she adopts a boy of her own; or Timothy Randebrush, a man so eager to keep his brother out of the clutches of a dangerous woman that he spirits her away — only to fall prey to her charms himself. Filled with unexpected surprises, laughter and tears, here are fourteen of the Blythes' favourite tales. (from the 1992 Bantam Books reissue)
