Behind the scenes[]

  • This story takes place in summer 1907, just some time before the wedding of John Meredith and Rosemary West.
  • In the original text, Montgomery made character name errors such as Charlie Pye (Charlie Sloane) and Rosamund West (Rosemary West). The editor left them in to preserve the originality of her work.
