Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942)
A portrait of Lucy Maud Montgomery, 1903.
Lucy Maud Montgomery became a literary legend, renowned internationally for her popular books about the beloved Anne of Green Gables.
Maud was born and raised on Prince Edward Island, where she began writing to escape a lonely childhood with her grandparents. While working as a teacher and then a gossip columnist, she struggled to establish herself as an author until her first novel was published. Anne of Green Gables was an instant hit and remains a best seller, but because of an unfavourable first contract Maud benefited very little from its amazing success. She continued to write throughout her life, while struggling to balance the challenges of raising her children and dealing with the serious mental instability of her husband.Discover more
