    "The Wooden Hill" starts out with Lucy Maud Montgomery as an old woman in her home on Riverside Drive in Toronto, with her husband Ewan, who has mental problems. Her son Stuart enters and after finding out that he has enlisted to join in WWII (he's a doctor), Lucy Maud is so upset that she begins to look back on her life, with the help of her old imaginary friend, Katie Maurice (who she saw in the glass in the parlour, just like Emily and her imaginary friend!!). Lucy Maud travels back in time and we see her going through difficult times with her sour old grandparents, who brought her up, and then visiting her father out west, who went there after his wife died.
