Meet the Author

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on November 30, 1874, in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, Canada. Her mother died from tuberculosis when she was a year and a half old and she went to live with her mother's parents, who were extremely strict. She returned to live with her father for a year in 1890, but his second marriage was unhappy, and she left again. That same year though, she had her first poem published in a local paper.

In 1893, she attended Prince of Wales College to obtain a teaching certificate and taught in various schools. In 1897, she became engaged, but ended the relationship a year later, finally marrying Ewen MacDonald in 1911, moving to Ontario, eventually having three sons.

In 1908, Anne wrote Anne of Green Gables, which became an instant success, leading her to write an additional ten books featuring the same characters and settings.

In 1935, her husband retired as a Presbyterian Minister and they moved to a suburb of Toronto. She died on April 24, 1942, at the age of 67, either from a coronary thrombosis, or a drug overdose-suicide, having written 20 novels, 500 short stories, poetry and many other works.

    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.
