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 Rainbow Valley is the seventh book in the Anne series and details Anne’s life as a mother of six children. The book also centers around a minister who moved to the neighborhood with his four children. This edition of Rainbow Valley includes a Table of Contents and images of Montgomery and her life, as well as images relating to her works.

This is a good book but it is not about Anne or her kids at all. It's about the Meredith kids-Jerry, Faith, Una, and Carl.

This is one of the two books which I refer to as "the secret Anne books". Because my exposure to Anne was my Mom's boxed set from her childhood, I assumed that Anne of Ingleside was the end of the story. But guess what! There are two more, Rainbow Valley & Rilla of Ingleside. I love them both, and they are an absolute must for any Anne fan, young or old.
