visión de conjunto:

Críticas Rosenberg paints a deep complex portrait of a vibrant brilliant yet troubled woman. At the beginning of every chapter Morstad accompanies these descriptions with Quentin Blake-like ink illustrations that capture the strange mix of whimsy humor and solemnity that permeated Maud's thoughts. Recommend to Anne fans aspiring writers or anyone wanting a peek inside the mind of a famous author who constantly fought for success and happiness.--Booklist (starred review) Rosenberg writes clearly and honestly making liberal use of Maud's own words allowing Maud's courage and joy to shine despite her very real problems...A kind thoughtful nuanced portrayal of one of the icons of children's literature.--Kirkus Reviews Rosenberg's comprehensive biography of the author of the beloved Anne of Green Gables series presents a multidimensional portrait of a complicated and conflicted writer...this illuminating and satisfying biography takes on life and depth as Montgomery's own voice grows more prominent.--Publishers Weekly In prose that often rivals that of her subject for its lyricism Rosenberg presents an honest look at a woman who while providing some of literature's happiest moments wavered between extremes of emotion herself...A timeline and references are included and each chapter is fronted by a nostalgic and delicate pen-and-ink illustration that adds piquancy by capturing the light-hearted side of the beloved author.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books A well-balanced biography that offers plenty of tidbits for fans and that acknowledges what Montgomery means to many without overly romanticizing the author or her story.--The Horn Book While the tale is full of sweet stories beautiful examples of literary writing and adventurous anecdotes it also shows the not-so-glamorous life of Montgomery. This honest look at her life reveals her struggles with depression and other illnesses as well as her interpersonal challenges...the reader is drawn into her world of imagination writing and her love of language.--School Library Connection Reseña del editor 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 Maud’s 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.
