Back Cover Text
During these two years in the life of the immortal Anne, she takes on the duties of a school teacher in Summerside, P.E.I. They are years of fun and work, of living with Miss “Chatty” and Mrs. Kate, and the matchless Rebecca Dew. And they are also years of waiting, for in Anne’s future waits Gilbert, now Dr. Blythe, and a little island dream home. Meanwhile, with her good sense, courage and charm, Anne manages to win over even the crustiest school board.
Lucy Maud Montgomery’s fascinating accounts of the lives and romances of Anne, Emily, and other well-loved characters have achieved long-lasting popularity the world over. Born in 1874 in Prince Edward Island, Lucy Maud showed an early flair for story-telling. She soon began to have her writing published in papers and magazines, and when she died in Toronto in 1942 she had written more than twenty novels and a large number of short stories. Most of her books are set in Prince Edward Island, which she loved very much and wrote of most beautifully. Anne of Green Gables, her most popular work, has been translated into thirty-six languages, made into a film twice, and has had continuing success as a stage play. Lucy Maud Montgomery’s early home at Cavendish, P.E.I., where she is buried, is a much-visited historic site.
