"Fishbane's affection for her subject shines through, making the character of Maud herself come alive for readers. An engaging depiction of an ambitious young woman . . . Maud is highly recommended for teen and adult readers." --National Reading Campaign

"[T]here's nothing dated about the relentless lack of understanding and warmth [Maud] experienced in her family life, something Fishbane conveys with aplomb." --The Toronto Star

"An engaging addition that will appeal to more than just fans of L.M. Montgomery." --School Library Journal

"... Maud will serve as a gateway to the world of Montgomery, which, even after more than a century, is in no danger of being exhausted." --Quill & Quire

"Fishbane places her readers in the historical and geographical environs of the teenage Montgomery and enhances their understanding of one of Canada’s most beloved authors." --CM Magazine

"Fishbane's historical research is thorough and comes out beautifully in the narrative. . . . [T]he spirit of Montgomery's writing breathes subtly within the pages." --Historical Novel Society

Product Description

For the first time ever, a young 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.
