"I love books. I hope when I grow up to be able to have lots of them." Not only did young Maud grow up to own lots of books, she wrote 24 of them herself as L.M. Montgomery, beloved author of Anne of Green Gables. Bringing her out from the shadow of her fictional creation, Liz Rosenberg's biography for young adult readers chronicles Maud's strict upbringing, her lifelong struggles with anxiety and depression, and her challenging married life, but also her confident handling of her talent and literary success.
"A kind, thoughtful, nuanced portrayal of one of the icons of children's literature."—Kirkus Reviews
