Published as part of Penguin Books’ Extraordinary Canadians series, the biography L.M. Montgomery is a truly fascinating look into the personal and professional life of one of Canada’s earliest literary superstars.
Author Urquhart, a longtime passionate admirer of Montgomery, is aptly able to convey the remarkable achievements of her subject. Achievements all the more notable, given the challenges facing a female author in turn of the century Prince Edward Island.
Surprises do abound in the book, as readers will also discover a darker, dysfunctional side to Montgomery’s personal life.
