Lucy Maud Montgomery believed that one day she would be taken seriously as a writer. Despite the many obstacles she faced throughout her life, Montgomery not only earned a good living as a writer, but also became famous for it. Anne of Green Gables is one of the most popular books ever written and has been translated into over 20 languages, garnering Montgomery worldwide recognition and appeal.

Weaving the real events of her life into the fabric of her fiction using photographs, excerpts from newspapers and actual journal pages, this biography explores Montgomery's struggle and determination to realize her dreams. This book in the Snapshots: Images of People and Places in History series includes a concise timeline and a listing of pertinent Web sites.
