Back Cover Text

In the winter, when she was Victoria, she lived in Toronto with her grandmother. Winters weren’t much fun but sometimes she got a glimpse of Jody who lived next door. But every summer “Victoria” changed into Jane and went to live with Daddy at Lantern Hill, P.E.I., a gay little house with its great chummy fireplace and Daddy puffing his pipe contentedly beside it. Capturing a live lion brought her into the headlines. Getting Jody adopted was even more resourceful. But getting Mother to come and live at Lantern Hill for keeps was hardest—and best—of all.

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.
