Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
According to PW , this ``well-crafted and solid biography'' casts ``a tender and sympathetic eye'' on the author of the Anne of Green Gables novels. Ages 10-up. (May)
School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-- Lucy Maud Montgomery had a bleak childhood growing up in a household where she was little more than tolerated by her two elderly grandparents. The story follows the ups and downs of her life, including her struggles to make a career of writing while fulfilling family obligations. This well-written account covers much of the unpleasantness in her life, along with interesting commentary about the young men attracted to her and, of course, her pursuit of a literary career. Young readers are likely to find such revelations dull, but junior high students may be interested. Eight pages of captioned black-and-white photographs are included. --Phyllis G. Sidorsky, National Cathedral School, Washington, DC
Carolyn Phelan
Bruce describes the life of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the author of "Anne of Green Gables", in a book that uses her journals as well as other sources. The opening map of Prince Edward Island is an appropriate beginning, as Montgomery spent much of her life growing up, teaching, and writing in various parts of the province. Although Bruce draws parallels and points out differences between Maud's life and that of the fictional Anne, his main focus is on the writer as a child and young woman, up until her marriage at the age of 36. Six plates of black-and-white photographs show Maud at various ages as well as significant people and places in her life. Quite a readable biography for "Anne" fans to enjoy.
