For the first time ever, a young adult novel about the teen years of L.M. Montgomery, the author who brought us ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. Fourteen-year-old Lucy Maud Montgomery -- Maud to her friends -- has a dream- to go to college and become a writer, just like her idol, Louisa May Alcott. But living with her grandparents on Prince Edward Island, she worries that this dream will never come true. Her grandfather has strong opinions about a woman's place in the world, and they do not include spending good money on college. Luckily, she has a teacher to believe in her, and good friends to support her, including Nate, the Baptist minister's stepson and the smartest boy in the class. If only he weren't a Baptist; her Presbyterian grandparents would never approve. Then again, Maud isn't sure she wants to settle down with a boy -- her dreams of being a writer are much more important. But life changes for Maud when she goes out West to live with her father and his new wife and daughter. Her new home offers her another chance at love, as well as attending school, but tensions increase as Maud discovers her stepmother's plans for her, which threaten Maud's future -- and her happiness forever.… (lisätietoja)

In this novel inspired by the life of Lucy Maud Montgomery, 14-year-old Maud lives with her grandparents on Prince Edward Island, goes to school, and dreams of going to college and becoming a writer. Throughout the novel, we follow her as she grows, through her first love, through moving to rural Saskatchewan with her father and stepmother, and through her return to the island, as she learns more about herself and her ambitions along the way.

I won this in the Early Reviewers program. I think I might not have been the target audience -- I like the Anne books, but I'm not a superfan, and that colored my opinion of this book, I think. The first half of the book honestly just feels like Anne of Green Gables rehashed -- Maud goes to school, gets into fights with some of the students, gets into trouble at home, etc. I have read a few novels by Michaela MacColl that are inspired by the early lives of famous authors, but MacColl usually creates her own original story out of the factual base, and I think that's what I was expecting here -- but this book just didn't seem very inspired and stayed maybe a little too close to the source material for a work of fiction. Maud was also pretty annoying in the younger years. As the book progresses and she gets older and moves to Saskatchewan, I found myself my drawn in by the story and enjoying it more. 3 stars, recommended more for Montgomery superfans. ( )

I received a free copy of this book through the Early Reviewers program — thank you!

A must-read for anyone who loves L.M. Montgomery’s books. This is beautifully-written, beautifully described, and infused with everything that I adored about the Anne of Green Gables books. ( )

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review

I don't even know where to start. I was eager to read this book after discovering my love for Anne of Green Gables a few years ago. Montgomery wrote such sweet and endearing characters that were transcendent more than 100 years after they were originally published. Maud is a fictionalized biography of the author who created the darling creatures from Prince Edward Island. What I enjoyed most about this book was the way the author perfectly captured the essence of a LMM novel. The tenderness was palpable and it made me incredibly emotional. I was close to tears nearly every chapter but no actual tears were shed. I believe what made me so invested what because I knew these events actually transpired, more or less. The author included biographies, diary entries, and research at the end of the book. LMM had a sad life and couldn't possess the same happiness her fictional characters experienced.

I connected to Maud and my heart broke for her. She faced so many obstacles and didn't receive proper love from her family but made dear friends wherever she went. This book made me an emotional wreck, but it was beautifully written. I'm so blessed to have read such a lovely fictional biography from someone who clearly understands the style of the subject. It was flawlessly interwoven with history as well as the prose of the LMM's own writing style. This was impeccable and I highly recommend for kindred spirits of Anne Shirley.

What an amazingly well written and engaging book! As I'm not from Canada, it took me some time to read Anne of Green Gables, though it had been a book I knew existed for much of my life. This look into the author was perfect. What a lady. I would recommend this book. 5 out of 5 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed it. ( )

Fans of the Anne of Green Gables series will be delighted and entertained by this story based on the life of author Lucy Maud Montgomery.

The story focuses on Maud's life with her grandparents on the beautiful Prince Edward Island. After being shuffled around between relatives after her father remarries, she finds comfort in her writing.

I found the story a bit slow, but I thought the writing was well done and it really takes readers back to a time where life was simpler and time with family and friends was treasured above other things.

Fans of the Avonlea television series might also enjoy this book. ( )

I want to do something splendid before I go into my castle, something heroic or wonderful that won't be forgotten after I'm dead. I don't know what, but I'm on the watch for it, and mean to astonish you all some day. I think I shall write books, and get rich and famous, that would suit me, so that is my favorite dream. --Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
But from childhood my one wish and ambition was to write. I never had any other or wished to have. --L.M. Montgomery
