House of Dreams: The Life of L.M. Montgomery

An affecting biography of the author of Anne of Green Gables is the first for young readers to include revelations about her last days and to encompass the complexity of a brilliant and sometimes troubled life.Once upon a time, there was a girl named Maud who adored stories. When she was fourteen years old, Maud wrote in her journal, "I love books. I hope when I grow up to be able to have lots of them." Not only did Maud grow up to own lots of books, she wrote twenty-four of them herself as L. M. Montgomery, the world-renowned author of Anne of Green Gables. For many years, not a great deal was known about Mauds personal life. Her childhood was spent with strict, undemonstrative grandparents, and her reflections on writing, her lifelong struggles with anxiety and depression, her "year of mad passion," and her difficult married life remained locked away, buried deep within her unpublished personal journals. Through this revealing and deeply moving biography, kindred spirits of all ages who, like Maud, never gave up "the substance of things hoped for" will be captivated anew by the words of this remarkable woman....

House of Dreams: The Life of L.M. Montgomery Reviews

  • Tanya

    As a forever fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery, I'm always interested in books about her life and more insight on her beloved Anne of Green Gables novels. This book, at middle grade level, was enjoyable but felt disjointed at times. It seemed as if the author had a good amount of Montgomery's life to share but needed a better outline in which to present it. I tend to prefer biographical material to be chronological or if not, to have a well defined pace, and this was abit all over the place. I did lea ...more

    I wish I never had read this. I never knew anything about L.M. Montgomery before this book, and I'm sorry to know anything at all. All I can hope to do us put this book out of my mind and try to forget it. All of my life I have dreamed of visiting Prince Edward Island, and it hurts my heart a bit to think knowing more about the author may have ruined a childhood favorite (and a series I have always enjoyed rereading as an adult).

    As for the actual book, I liked the cover illustration (indeed it s

    I've always loved the story of Anne of Green Gables, ever since I first saw the CBC tv version when I was so young I barely understood what was going on. Few things make me feel more nostalgic than popping in the old DVD and watching Megan Follows sitting in her attic bedroom, gazing into her reflection and musing about kindred spirits. Once I got a little older, I found the L.M. Montgomery books at my local library and worked m

    I loved this look at the life of the beloved of author of Anne of Green Gables and Emily of New Moon. The book is well researched and almost feels as if Ms. Montgomery could have written it herself. The author's life is manifest in the lives of her most famous heroines; Anne and Emily. It's fun to see how she put so much of herself into her characters.

    Ms. Montgomery was a wealthy woman during her time, which makes me happy to see an artist recognized while they are still alive. If you love the w

    I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    L.M. Montgomery is probably best known as the creator of one of the best-loved book characters every written: Anne Shirley. I first encountered Lucy Maud Montgomery the when I picked up Anne of Green Gables for the first time. I later met some of her other creations: Emily, the Storygirl, and my favorite: Valancy Stirling. I hadn't given Montgomery's life much thought beyond her profession as a written and tho

    Any L.M. Montgomery fan will want to read this book, as it portrays Lucy Maud's life and writings. I was delighted to discover that the author herself was much like her character Anne, full of vivacity and imagination and a love of beauty and nature.

    Sadly, Maud's life was not one of happiness. In her early years, she struggled with loneliness and abandonment. In later years, she struggled with depression, was not happily married, and had a very difficult adult son. Her friendships were sweet, sh
