The Selected Journals of L.M. Montgomery, Volume I
About this Item
L. M. Montgomery Journals
Oxford University Press
Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942) kept extensive journals for most of her life, beginning them in 1889 when she was fourteen and continuing them until shortly before her death. Spontaneous and frank, they are unusual for their narrative interest: Montgomery's gifts as a storyteller are as much in evidence here as in her novels. This first volume takes her to 1910, the year before her marriage, and culminates with the publication of Anne of Green Gables. The fascinating journals collected here offer the reader not just a unique social history, but also the privilege of viewing closely the life of a remarkable woman.
