Remembering Lucy Maud Montgomery

Front Cover
Dundurn, Oct 1, 2001 - Biography & Autobiography - 256 pages

Lucy Maud Montgomery, Canada’s most beloved author, not only gave the world the classic novel Anne of Green Gables, but she was also a devoted minister’s wife, mother, neighbour, and friend to many, who in turn were honoured to have know this great lady.

In Remembering Lucy Maud Montgomery, the writer is remembered through first-hand reminiscences of the people who knew her. Her Sunday school students, neighbours, maids, family, and friends paint a portrait of Montgomery as she has never before been seen. Not only does this book uncover fascinating sides of the author and provide fresh anecdotes, but it includes many photographs that are published for the first time.

Even Montgomery’s most devoted fans will find stories to surprise, delight, and at times even shock them.
