Read full description of the books:
This is a short biography of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the author of Anne of Green Gables and other classic books adored by children and readers for more than 100 years. It mostly focuses on Maud's early life and young adulthood up until her marriage to the Rev. Ewan MacDonald when she was 36.
The part that I found most interesting was Maud's ill-fated love affair with Herman Leard. In 1897 there were very strict expectations for how young couples would court and behave before marriage, especially on PEI where the population was very conservative and class-concsious. It is described in the book as "secret meeting... where they kissed and caressed each other by the soft light from candles... He always left her bedroom at midnight, but only after Maud had gasped out frantic orders for him to get out..."
Maud was overpoweringly attracted to Herman, she could not stay away from him, yet in the rational part of her mind she know that she could never marry him. "In the end, Maud believed, no man could feel anything but contempt for a single woman he'd seduced." And marriage to him "she believed would mean a year of bliss, followed by a lifetime of misery, regret, and corrosive boredom."
