This article is about a short story collection. You may be looking for "The Road to Yesterday", a short story of the same name.
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)
