Lucy Maud Montgomery: The Gift of Wings by Mary Henley RubioIf Lucy Maud Montgomery were alive today, she would be 134 years old. Her most famous book, Anne of Green Gables, was first published a century ago in 1908. Montgomery wrote a number of books about Anne’s adventures, as well as many other novels and collections of short stories. Now she is the subject of a book herself, Lucy Maud Montgomery: The Gift of Wings by Mary Henley Rubio. Rubio has spent over two decades researching Montgomery’s life, and has put together a comprehensive and penetrating picture of this Canadian literary icon, all set in rich social context.

From Montgomery’s apparently idyllic childhood in Prince Edward Island to her passion-filled adolescence and young adulthood, to her legal fights as world-famous author, to her shattering experiences with motherhood and as wife to a deeply troubled man, this fascinating, intimate narrative of her life will engage and delight.
