Overview

Lucy Maud Montgomery was a Canadian author best known for writing children’s literature. Montgomery’s mother died of tuberculosis when she was an infant. Montgomery was raised by her grandparents in the small community of Cavendish on Prince Edward Island, which was the setting for her most famous works centered around an orphaned girl named Anne. It was Montgomery’s strict and challenging upbringing which indirectly led her down the path to writing as she created imaginary people and places to combat the loneliness she was feeling at such a young age.

At just 16 years old, Montgomery had a poem published in a Charlottetown newspaper. A couple years later she attended the Prince of Wales College in Charlottetown and it took her only 1 year to attain a teacher’s license. Montgomery would later become a teacher at various schools yet it was always writing that she truly loved. She married a Presbyterian minister named Ewen Macdonald. They had 2 sons but Montgomery was quickly overwhelmed as she had to take care of Ewen who became mentally and physically ill. Writing remained her one escape from what was often an unhappy life. Montgomery would end up publishing 20 novels and over 500 short stories and poems in her lifetime.

Montgomery’s Anne’s House of Dreams is the fifth book in the Anne series and begins with Anne and Gilbert Blythe’s wedding. The book then takes the reader through Anne’s married life as the couple buys a home in Four Winds Point. This edition of Anne’s House of Dreams includes a Table of Contents and images of Montgomery and her life, as well as images relating to her works.
