Music: "Paddy Fahy's Reel" and "The Mountain Top" by ChulruaLand of Green Gables by Wayne Curtis

The Atlantic, October 2008

"In Avonlea, I talked to a 'village resident' in a minister’s collar, who told me he was also a minister in real life and had officiated at more than 500 weddings of Japanese couples, mostly at the Anne of Green Gables Museum. This is the farm where Montgomery herself was married, and the couples go to great lengths to duplicate her ceremony, right down to the wedding cake, which is made from the same recipe."
