At 21 months old Lucy's mother,Clara Woolner MacNeil, pasted away, her father, Hugh Montgomery, remarried and Lucy was sent to live with her grandparents on the other side of the island.

In 1908 her novel, Anne or Green Gables, previously rejected, is published.
March of 1911 she married Reverend Ewan Macdonald and moved to Leaskdale Ontario.
She had three sons Chester, Hugh (still born), and Stuart (Uxbridge). Lucy Maud Montgomery Spectacular Summary The Magnificent Anne Shirley Anne Shirley, also known as "Anne of Green Gables" is the main character of the novel. She is a young girl with firery red hair
The whole story is based around Anne and all of her adventures and misadventures while in Avonlea
Anne is an oprah, her parents died when she was little. She has been in living in very bad conditions before she came to Green Gables
The novel is based around the themes of Anne's insecurities, self evaluation and journey for the discovery of self identity and the need to justify herself. Which, also, common Canadian themes. Stunning Significant Moment In the whole novel the most significant moment is when Matthew, one of Anne's guardians, dies.
He dies unexpectedly and of fright while Anne is home from Queens. The Best Canadian Novel Ever! Anne of Green Gables She won many awards. In 1923, Lucy became the first Canadian woman to be made a member of the British Royal Society of Arts.
In her lifetime she wrote 20 novels and countless short stories and poems.
Lucy was made a Companion of the Order of the British Empire by King George V and was elected to the Literary and Artistic Institute of France.
National Sites and Historic Board of Canada declared Montgomery a person of National Historic Significance, after her death on April 24 1942 (L.M Montgomery Institute). As one reads the novel one can see the transformation of Anne. How she changes herself to adapt to her surroundings and sometimes cater to others, but, she never really looses herself.
The major theme in this novel is the idea of self-identity and discovering one's self. With every experience Anne undergoes it changes her a little bit. The audience really see's and feels this when reading. Anne even says:
"Oh, don't you see, Marilla? There must be a limit to the mistakes one person can make, and when I get to the end of them, then I'll be through with them. That's a very comforting thought" (188) Marilla after, just to Anne says:
"I don't know what I'd do if you weren't here- if you'd never come. Oh, Anne I know I've been strict and harsh with you maybe- but you mustn't think I didn't love you as well as Matthew did for all that. I want to tell you now when I can. It's never been easy for me to say things out of my heart, but at times like this it's easier. I love you as dear as if you were my own flesh and blood and you've been my joy and comfort since you came to Green Gables" (316) M The significance of this is that Marilla throughout the novel is seen as the face of authority.
She really does not show too much love towards Anne, especially compared to Matthew.
When he passes away Marilla realizes that she has to tell Anne her true feelings before it is too late.
This is so significant because it changes the audiences views on Marilla.
Even though Marilla always seemed to look down on Anne, she actually loved her.
It can be said, don't judge a book by its cover. Mean Girls: In the movie the main character, Cady, goes to her first high school and gets mixed in with the wrong crowd. She goes through identity issues and changes completely. This is what Anne does if one compares this half of the novel to the first half. It almost seems as if there are two different characters. Captivating Connections Why is This Novel so Mind-Blowing? The Spiderwick Chronicles. Main character Jared is a boy who has a wild side; he is misunderstood by his family and sometimes feels self-conscious and an outsider. He finds a book that lets him see a whole new world, one of pixies and fairies. This book he found give him meaning and direction, much like school or learning for Anne. Jared really finds himself through this book and the adventures he encounters, just like all the exciting events that have occurred for Anne. Anne of Green Gables really can be connected to any adventure story with an imaginative main character. Works Cited "Lucy Maud Montgomery." Uxbridge. Uxbridge On-Line Inc., n.d.

She has bounced around foster homes and orphanages.
Everywhere she has been, she has had an awful experience
She once had to take care of twelve children in one foster home Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are bother and sister who are both unmarried.
Matthew, being older, can no longer do all the work around the farm on his own. So, they decide to adopt a boy from a orphanage to help with the work.
When Matthew went to pick up the "boy" from the train station he is surprised to see young Anne.
Matthew, Marilla, and the other people of the community are unsure about Anne.
She is a wild child with a crazy imagination. She speaks her mind, uses large words that no one can understand, and speaks way too much.
Although, all characters end up falling in love with her, she is truly one of a kind.
At school a boy named Gilbert says that Anne has carrot hair, and Anne creates a deep and passionate hatred for him. Anne is constantly getting herself into trouble
At one point she gets her Bossom Friend (best friend) Diana drunk by accident.
She dyes her hair green and has to get it cut.
She breaks her ankle during a dare, and almost drowns because she decides to float down the river in a leaky boat to recite a poem.
Also, one night when she is sleeping over at Diana's house, both of them run and jump on, what they think is their empty bed, but actually Diana's Great Aunt, who is sleeping in it.
Even though Anne makes a lot of mistakes she is the best student in school
She has a rivalry with a boy named Gilbert Blythe for top in class. This continues into Queens. Anne makes many friends and surprisingly becomes very good friends with Diana's Great Aunt
While almost drowning on the leaky boat, Gilbert saves Anne and asks to be friends, she immediately declines and storms off
Anne makes it to Queens, a school, top of her class, where her rivalry with Gilbert only intensifies.
There she feels very uncomfortable because she does not have her best friend Diana with her. She feels alone and questions her future.
She does many readings at a fancy hotel called "The White Sands Hotel", and is exceptional.
She visits home, where Matthew dies.
She is left with only Marilla and her future is changed drastically. It is considered the Best Canadian Novel Ever for many reasons. First, the life of Anne and the life of Lucy are so similar. If one did know Lucy's life no one would have guessed! It is almost like a diary. This is incredible because it gives Anne life, it takes her off the page and into the world. She was real! Secondly, Anne is probably the most entertaining character. She gets in so much trouble, its incredible.The reader sees how she changes a strict village into a colourful and diverse village. Anne is truly unique. Also, considering the time period this was written in, early 1990's, the book still relates today. the problems Anne goes through are the same anyone today may face. The book is very relatable. Finally, the setting of the novel is in Prince Edward Island, the landscape is beautiful. Lucy does an expecitonal job of disrcibing the scenery through Anne's imaginative choice of worlds. I believe any writer that can influence people after their time period for years and years is truely exceptional and one of a kind. This novel is Canada's best. By: Alexandria Pozojevic
