Mostly A’s

Barney Snaith (The Blue Castle): Barney is an interesting mix of mysterious and scandalous.  He’s not willing to follow the rules and will always be up for an adventure with you. However, he’s also incredibly kind and has a creative streak he tries to hide.

Mostly B’s

Eric Marshall (Kilmeny of the Orchard): Educated and wealthy, Eric is also a romantic.  He’ll want to share all he knows with you and show you the world.  He’s also willing to stick up for you if he thinks you’re in trouble and will persevere to win your hand.

Mostly C’s

Gilbert Blythe (Anne of Green Gables): Gilbert has a sense of humor but also a sense of chivalry; he’ll tease you because he likes you but apologize if it stings.  Gilbert is also intelligent and ambition, the perfect match for anyone who wants to be challenged as well as cherished.

Mostly D’s

Teddy Kent (Emily of New Moon): A man with artistic talent and a temperament to  match, Teddy is also very kind.  He was raised by his mother to be a helpful lad and will always be willing to do his share of the chores.  He’ll also find small ways to make you feel special.

      I just reread it recently. It’s really charming, but I think I can see why it’s not considered one of Montgomery’s books for adults, even though the characters are a little older and don’t start at eleven years old like Anne, Emily, etc. It seems like a romance that would appeal to younger readers to me, in some ways. 🙂

      Gilbert is definitely one of my favorites! Although I am also partial to Jingle from Pat of Silver Bush, who sadly did not make it into my quiz. :p

    Well rather conveniently, considering I got Emily on the last quiz, I got Teddy- which shows two things: 1) these quizzes must be incredibly accurate and 2) that I really need to read Emily of New Moon, because I clearly have a lot in common with her (especially her taste in men 😉 )
