    We?ve all heard of Anne of Green Gables and other novels by famed author L. M. Montgomery. I remember watching the series with Megan Follows and loving it, my initial impression was that the author shared the same personality traits as Anne did. Right from the beginning I was capt...

    I am obsessed with Anne of Green Gables and all of L.M. Montgomery's novels. She is what drew me into reading, and whenever I need a "comfort read" I pull out one of her books. To me, there is nothing better than reading about Anne and Gilbert. That said. I'm torn about this book. ...

    I loved this look at the life of the beloved of author of Anne of Green Gables and Emily of New Moon. The book is well researched and almost feels as if Ms. Montgomery could have written it herself. The author's life is manifest in the lives of her most famous heroines; Anne and Emily....

    I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. L.M. Montgomery is probably best known as the creator of one of the best-loved book characters every written: Anne Shirley. I first encountered Lucy Maud Montgomery the when I picked up Anne of Gre...

    I picked this book up in the 9-12 year old section at the store where I work. I think it might need to be moved to the teen or adult section. It deals with all aspects of her life and I'm not sure some things need to be read by a 9-12 year old. The book reads like L.M. Montgomery's ...

    I wish I never had read this. I never knew anything about L.M. Montgomery before this book, and I'm sorry to know anything at all. All I can hope to do us put this book out of my mind and try to forget it. All of my life I have dreamed of visiting Prince Edward Island, and it hurts my ...

    What a wonderful book! I am normally a slow reader, but I read this one quickly. I love the way this writers puts her sentences together. L. M. Montgomery is a favorite author so I had a special interest here, though I am inclined to like most bios. This one is gripping from the st...

    Liz Rosenberg?s biography of L.M. Montgomery is an excellent read that encompasses every aspect of Montgomery?s life, without getting stuck on any particular angle. The author did a good job focusing on Montgomery?s personal strengths (of which were many), yet also addresses her ...

    Any L.M. Montgomery fan will want to read this book, as it portrays Lucy Maud's life and writings. I was delighted to discover that the author herself was much like her character Anne, full of vivacity and imagination and a love of beauty and nature. Sadly, Maud's life was not one o...

    Liz Rosenberg has done an exceptional job of collecting personal details of the life of beloved author L.M. Montgomery, bringing to light her life long struggles with anxiety and depression. A prolific writer, Montgomery's determination led her to overcome financial difficulties and ob...

    We?ve all heard of Anne of Green Gables and other novels by famed author L. M. Montgomery. I remember watching the series with Megan Follows and loving it, my initial impression was that the author shared the same personality traits as Anne did. Right from the beginning I was capt...

    *I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.* Instead of consuming this book, I feel like this book consumed me. I fell into it and was wholeheartedly immersed in L. M. Montgomery?s life. Even while not reading it, I s...

    I am obsessed with Anne of Green Gables and all of L.M. Montgomery's novels. She is what drew me into reading, and whenever I need a "comfort read" I pull out one of her books. To me, there is nothing better than reading about Anne and Gilbert. That said. I'm torn about this book. ...

    Finished this on the same day I finished Rhodes? memoir about working for Obama, and my reaction is similar. Both are well-written and as a fan, I was happy to read this. But I suspect this would be a bit much for those who don?t know or care for Montgomery. One thing I neglected t...

    I loved this look at the life of the beloved of author of Anne of Green Gables and Emily of New Moon. The book is well researched and almost feels as if Ms. Montgomery could have written it herself. The author's life is manifest in the lives of her most famous heroines; Anne and Emily....

    This illustrated biography of Maud Montgomery, the author of the Anne of Green Gables series, is a must-have for middle school and up biography readers. Her mother died when she was a toddler; her father left her in the care of her grandparents, and Maud grew up wanting more: passionat...

    More of a YA book than a middle-grade reader, this is essential reading for any lover of Anne of Green Gables! I learned so much about the author and her background. It made feel as if I had been to Prince Edward Island which someday I really want to do. I did not know a Prime Minister...

    It's ok - and it might actually be important - for young readers to know that L.M. Montgomery's life had moments that were very dark to go with the very bright. ...

    I had no idea of the tragedy and heartbreak (and all the suitors!) that Maud experienced in her life, especially considering how bright and cheerful Anne is. Received at ALA Midwinter 2018. ...

    The book!!! The illustrations are five stars alone let alone the story! I did not know much about Maud Montgomery before reading this; just that I had read and loved Anne of Green Gables growing up. Now I love the books even more and need to reread! If you love Anne as much as I do I t...

    Liz Rosenberg has done an exceptional job of collecting personal details of the life of beloved author L.M. Montgomery, bringing to light her life long struggles with anxiety and depression. A prolific writer, Montgomery's determination led her to overcome financial difficulties and ob...

    *I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.* Instead of consuming this book, I feel like this book consumed me. I fell into it and was wholeheartedly immersed in L. M. Montgomery?s life. Even while not reading it, I s...

    I am obsessed with Anne of Green Gables and all of L.M. Montgomery's novels. She is what drew me into reading, and whenever I need a "comfort read" I pull out one of her books. To me, there is nothing better than reading about Anne and Gilbert. That said. I'm torn about this book. ...

    Finished this on the same day I finished Rhodes? memoir about working for Obama, and my reaction is similar. Both are well-written and as a fan, I was happy to read this. But I suspect this would be a bit much for those who don?t know or care for Montgomery. One thing I neglected t...

    E ARC from Netgalley.com There is a lot of information available about Montgomery's life, and Rosenberg does a good job of putting together an in-depth overview of the writer's life and career. Since many of Montgomery's stories are largely autobiographical, readers who are very fam...

    I loved this look at the life of the beloved of author of Anne of Green Gables and Emily of New Moon. The book is well researched and almost feels as if Ms. Montgomery could have written it herself. The author's life is manifest in the lives of her most famous heroines; Anne and Emily....

    As a forever fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery, I'm always interested in books about her life and more insight on her beloved Anne of Green Gables novels. This book, at middle grade level, was enjoyable but felt disjointed at times. It seemed as if the author had a good amount of Montgomery'...

    This illustrated biography of Maud Montgomery, the author of the Anne of Green Gables series, is a must-have for middle school and up biography readers. Her mother died when she was a toddler; her father left her in the care of her grandparents, and Maud grew up wanting more: passionat...

    More of a YA book than a middle-grade reader, this is essential reading for any lover of Anne of Green Gables! I learned so much about the author and her background. It made feel as if I had been to Prince Edward Island which someday I really want to do. I did not know a Prime Minister...

    It's ok - and it might actually be important - for young readers to know that L.M. Montgomery's life had moments that were very dark to go with the very bright. ...

    I had no idea of the tragedy and heartbreak (and all the suitors!) that Maud experienced in her life, especially considering how bright and cheerful Anne is. Received at ALA Midwinter 2018. ...

    The book!!! The illustrations are five stars alone let alone the story! I did not know much about Maud Montgomery before reading this; just that I had read and loved Anne of Green Gables growing up. Now I love the books even more and need to reread! If you love Anne as much as I do I t...

    A candid look at the life of L.M. Montgomery and likely an enjoyable read for any fellow "Anne" fan. ...

    Beautiful biography! It's told in a story-like manner, and L.M. Montgomery comes to vivid life. Maud's story is ultimately uplifting and triumphant--and unforgettable. ...

    Beautiful biography of a beautiful writer. I have really enjoyed the Anne and Emily books by Montgomery, and was blown away by the details of her life. I feel like I know her now, as I never did before. Rosenberg's writing is so lyrical at times it reminds me of Montgomery's, especiall...

    3.5? First off, why on earth are there no photos??? So many got described, and I tried to find them online, but was only moderately successful. I'm struggling to figure out who the intended reader is. It feels young, except then there's the dive into sex, mental health, a creepy sc...

    I received an e-copy of this book through NetGalley for review. I found this biography of L.M. Montgomery fascinating as well as heart breaking as I read about the difficult life she faced. I am a big fan of Anne of Green Gables and was very interested to learn more about how the bo...

    I picked this book up in the 9-12 year old section at the store where I work. I think it might need to be moved to the teen or adult section. It deals with all aspects of her life and I'm not sure some things need to be read by a 9-12 year old. The book reads like L.M. Montgomery's ...

    I wish I never had read this. I never knew anything about L.M. Montgomery before this book, and I'm sorry to know anything at all. All I can hope to do us put this book out of my mind and try to forget it. All of my life I have dreamed of visiting Prince Edward Island, and it hurts my ...

    What a wonderful book! I am normally a slow reader, but I read this one quickly. I love the way this writers puts her sentences together. L. M. Montgomery is a favorite author so I had a special interest here, though I am inclined to like most bios. This one is gripping from the st...

    I am obsessed with Anne of Green Gables and all of L.M. Montgomery's novels. She is what drew me into reading, and whenever I need a "comfort read" I pull out one of her books. To me, there is nothing better than reading about Anne and Gilbert. That said. I'm torn about this book. ...

    I loved this look at the life of the beloved of author of Anne of Green Gables and Emily of New Moon. The book is well researched and almost feels as if Ms. Montgomery could have written it herself. The author's life is manifest in the lives of her most famous heroines; Anne and Emily....

    As a forever fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery, I'm always interested in books about her life and more insight on her beloved Anne of Green Gables novels. This book, at middle grade level, was enjoyable but felt disjointed at times. It seemed as if the author had a good amount of Montgomery'...

    This illustrated biography of Maud Montgomery, the author of the Anne of Green Gables series, is a must-have for middle school and up biography readers. Her mother died when she was a toddler; her father left her in the care of her grandparents, and Maud grew up wanting more: passionat...

    More of a YA book than a middle-grade reader, this is essential reading for any lover of Anne of Green Gables! I learned so much about the author and her background. It made feel as if I had been to Prince Edward Island which someday I really want to do. I did not know a Prime Minister...

    It's ok - and it might actually be important - for young readers to know that L.M. Montgomery's life had moments that were very dark to go with the very bright. ...

    I had no idea of the tragedy and heartbreak (and all the suitors!) that Maud experienced in her life, especially considering how bright and cheerful Anne is. Received at ALA Midwinter 2018. ...

    The book!!! The illustrations are five stars alone let alone the story! I did not know much about Maud Montgomery before reading this; just that I had read and loved Anne of Green Gables growing up. Now I love the books even more and need to reread! If you love Anne as much as I do I t...

    A candid look at the life of L.M. Montgomery and likely an enjoyable read for any fellow "Anne" fan. ...

    Beautiful biography! It's told in a story-like manner, and L.M. Montgomery comes to vivid life. Maud's story is ultimately uplifting and triumphant--and unforgettable. ...

    Beautiful biography of a beautiful writer. I have really enjoyed the Anne and Emily books by Montgomery, and was blown away by the details of her life. I feel like I know her now, as I never did before. Rosenberg's writing is so lyrical at times it reminds me of Montgomery's, especiall...

    This review and many more like it are available at Read Till Dawn . I've always loved the story of Anne of Green Gables, ever since I first saw the CBC tv version when I was so young I barely understood what was going on. Few things make me feel more nostalgic than popping in the o...

    I picked this book up in the 9-12 year old section at the store where I work. I think it might need to be moved to the teen or adult section. It deals with all aspects of her life and I'm not sure some things need to be read by a 9-12 year old. The book reads like L.M. Montgomery's ...

    I wish I never had read this. I never knew anything about L.M. Montgomery before this book, and I'm sorry to know anything at all. All I can hope to do us put this book out of my mind and try to forget it. All of my life I have dreamed of visiting Prince Edward Island, and it hurts my ...

    What a wonderful book! I am normally a slow reader, but I read this one quickly. I love the way this writers puts her sentences together. L. M. Montgomery is a favorite author so I had a special interest here, though I am inclined to like most bios. This one is gripping from the st...
