For the first time ever, a young novel about the teen
years of L.M. Montgomery, the author who brought us ANNE OF
Fourteen-year-old Lucy Maud Montgomery -- Maud to her
friends -- has a dream: to go to college and become a
writer, just like her idol, Louisa May Alcott. But living
with her grandparents on Prince Edward Island, she worries
that this dream will never come true. Her grandfather has
strong opinions about a woman's place in the world, and they
do not include spending good money on college. Luckily, she
has a teacher to believe in her, and good friends to support
her, including Nate, the Baptist minister's stepson and the
smartest boy in the class. If only he weren't a Baptist; her
Presbyterian grandparents would never approve. Then again,
Maud isn't sure she wants to settle down with a boy -- her
dreams of being a writer are much more important.
But life changes for Maud when she goes out West to live
with her father and his new wife and daughter. Her new home
offers her another chance at love, as well as attending
school, but tensions increase as Maud discovers her
stepmother's plans for her, which threaten Maud's future --
and her happiness forever.
