The lush, evocative chronicles of THE GOLDEN ROAD have that quaint verboseness of post-Victorian times. These "adventures" in no way resemble modern-day childish occupations, though their attitude is timeless. Conlin sustains the idyllic, gossipy quality of Montgomery's story, set on a farm in Carlisle, P.E.I. She projects the sentimental aura of the turn of the century. In today's times, a more "acted" rendering might possibly have provided a wider appeal. Conlin elects to err on the side of caution, thus relinquishing some liveliness.
