Meet the Author

Lucy Maud Montgomery OBE (November 30, 1874 - April 24, 1942), called "Maud" by family and friends and publicly known as L. M. Montgomery, was a Canadian author best known for a series of novels beginning with Anne of Green Gables, published in 1908. Anne of Green Gables was an immediate success. The central character, Anne, an orphaned girl, made Montgomery famous in her lifetime and gave her an international following. The first novel was followed by a series of sequels with Anne as the central character. Montgomery went on to publish 20 novels as well as 530 short stories, 500 poems, and 30 essays. Most of the novels were set on Prince Edward Island, Canada, and places in the Canadian province became literary landmarks. She was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1935.

Montgomery's work, diaries and letters have been read and studied by scholars and readers worldwide.
Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in Clifton (now New London), Prince Edward Island on November 30, 1874. Her mother, Clara Woolner Macneill Montgomery, died of tuberculosis when Lucy was 21 months old. Stricken with grief over his wife's death, Hugh John Montgomery gave custody over to Montgomery's maternal grandparents. Later he moved to Prince Albert, North-West Territories when Montgomery was seven years old. She went to live with her maternal grandparents, Alexander Marquis Macneill and Lucy Woolner Macneill, in the nearby community of Cavendish and was raised by them in a strict and unforgiving manner. Montgomery's early life in Cavendish was very lonely. Despite having relations nearby, much of her childhood was spent alone. Montgomery credits this time of her life, in which she created many imaginary friends and worlds to cope with her loneliness, as what developed her creative mind.

Montgomery completed her early education in Cavendish with the exception of one year (1890-1891) during which she was at Prince Albert with her father and her step-mother, Mary Ann McRae. In November 1890, while at Prince Albert, Montgomery had her first work published in the Charlottetown paper The Daily Patriot; a poem entitled "On Cape LeForce". She was as excited about this as she was about her return to her beloved Prince Edward Island in 1891. The return to Cavendish was a great relief to her. Her time in Prince Albert was unhappy due to the fact that Montgomery and McRae did not get along and because by, "... Maud's account, her father's marriage was not a happy one."

    This is the entire book. And it's free! It's the only one of the Anne series I could find for free, so I suggest you get it. My only complaint is that there are a few misspellings. However, it doesn't take away from the delightful story in here.

    Anne and Gilbert are (finally) married and move to, well, Anne's House of Dreams. This story is both deep, lighthearted, and funny. I savored every bit.
    No spoilers for those who haven't read it yet.

    Go ahead and get it. FREE.

    Hardly any anne. She is missing from the book. The new characters are a bore. I am surprised by the rave reviews. I am not motivated to finish this book.

    House o dreams

    This was among the best books in the seires, although the entire seires was probably the best i ever read. Though i did not like that Joyce died. I had looked foward to this book alot and when the wedding happened i think i was dissapointing. There should have been more detail. But like the other books it was ecedingly well writen.

    On ONE OF THESE REVIEWS IS WRONG!!!!!

    Someone said that this book was the fifth in this series, and that is corect. The only thing that this person said was wrong was that they said that the fourth in this series, Anee of Windy Poplars, was not avaliable. WRONG!!!!!!! Think im wrong? Type in the title. Its their!!!!! So if youve just finished anne of the island and want something more then anne of windy poplars is your next read!!!

    I Also Recommend:

    One of the best of the Anne Series

    Besides the first book, I liked "Anne's House of Dreams" the best so far out of the whole series. Why? Although Anne and Gilbert are finally married, the tone of this book isn't so "cutsy-perfect" as some of the other books are. Hardships and tragedies actually occur, and we read how Anne and other characters handle them. A couple complaints: I wish Gilbert appeared more in the book, but we should be grateful for what we get of him in this story becauase he appears even less in the next. The wedding of Anne and Gilbert was kind of a let down. There was a big build up to this moment ever since Gilbert first yanked Anne's hair in the first book, and then when they finally got married, it was like we weren't even invited to the wedding! I would have at least liked a description of her wedding dress! I loved the banter between Captain Jim and Miss Cornelia, but for some reason I did not take to Susan Baker. I guess I felt like she got "in the way"... there always seemed to be other characters around Anne and Gilbert, and sometimes I just wanted our main characters to be left alone with each other more often! I could see, hear, and smell every scene in the story (my compliments to the author). This book also includes one of the biggest plot twists I've ever read! I'm a pretty good "guesser" but I was NOT expecting this!

    Spoiler: I'm glad Anne learned how to live and still enjoy life after the death of Joy. And I was so happy for Leslie that things turned out right in the end. Lessons could be learned from her strange circumstance. No matter what, do the right thing and be patient.. God will bring good about from any circumstance in the end for those who love Him.

    Wrong series number

    Anne's House of Dreams is actually book 5 in the series. They don't have Anne of Windy Poplars which is actually book 4 in the series. If you're listening website editors, you need to change this. Having Anne of Windy Poplars in ebook available as book 4 might be nice as well.

    book number five...

    Anne's House of Dreams is book number five in the Green Gables series. Anne's first year of marriage is filled with perfect happiness. But with the happiness comes tragic heartbreak. Life at Four Winds Harbor is never dull and Anne takes life as it comes. The Anne of Green Gables series is beautifully written with stunning descriptions. I am really enjoying re-reading these books!
