Product description


“A gem.” - London Free Press

“With its brevity, [Urquhart’s] book is a rich tour de force of Montgomery’s life.” - The Globe and Mail

“A beautifully crafted, if shockingly sad study of Lucy Maud Montgomery…. Urquhart … distils her famous subject to its essence…. Fascinating.” - Ottawa Citizen

“A poignant biography.” - Calgary Herald

“[The] choice of novelist Jane Urquhart … to pen a brief biography of Lucy Maud Montgomery was inspired…. The fit is perfect, and Urquhart’s wonderfully perceptive portrait of the richly talented Montgomery is without flaw…. A beautiful poetic biography, one which catches the essence of a remarkable personality.” - London Free Press

“A richly multi-layered portrait…. [An] excellent biography.” - Quill & Quire
