While I have never read "Anne of Green Gables", I was still interested in reading about the author. This book tells of her life during her early years of living with her grandparents on Prince Edward Island. The author used Maud's own edited journal and letters she had written to friends and family to write this entertaining and enjoyable piece of historical fiction.
I can tell you that Maud did not have such a great life growing up with her grandparents and times being what they were with the feelings toward women, she really had a difficult road to travel.
While the book was a little slow to start, once it got going, I really came to like Maud and was rooting for her all the way.
Thanks to Penguin Random House Canada and Net Galley for approving and allowing me to read and review this book.
