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."

    Warning

    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.

    A must-read for any Anne fan

    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.

    delightful

    Rating: 4.5<BR/><BR/>Rainbow Valley, book 7 in the Anne of Green Gables series, is a delightful read. The central characters in the story are Anne's children and their new friends, the Meredith children. Sadly, Anne only makes a few appearances in Rainbow Valley. The Meredith children have some fun little adventures, which usually leaves their father, the town minister, scandalised and the children the talk of the town. Eventually the town comes to see how lovable these children are and everybody lives happily ever after. Or do they? The book ends with the first hints of a coming War. I'm curious to see how WWI affects Anne and her family in the next book of the series, Rilla of Ingleside.

    Charming Classic

    This book is one of the best books I have ever read. I have always loved all of the Anne books, but her children are simply a few of the most resplendent characters one can ever expect to meet through literature. Although the Merediths dominate a large percentage of the book, they are a piquant family that, although not the Blythes, will capture one's heart.
