443 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs, maps. The second volume of 'The Selected Journals of L.M. Montgomery' "records a time of great change and upheaval both in Montgomery's life and in society. When she wrote the first entry in this volume she had recently become a world-famous author, having published 'Anne of Green Gables' in 1908. Here we become privy to her response to the death of her grandmother, who had restricted her life severely; her marriage and honeymoon trip to Scotland and England; and her departure from Prince Edward Island to the new restrictions of her life as the wife of a Presbyterian minister in an Ontario village. Montgomery reveals the intensities of friendship, the minutiae of home-making, the joys of motherhood along with the traumas of a disturbed marriage, and records the sources and composition of the 'Anne' series and the emergence of her new heroine 'Emily'. Besides learning about the rewards and trials - including two unpleasant lawsuits - of being a successful author, we see also how a sensitive woman responded to the possibility, the actuality, and the aftermath of a world war. By turns tart and sentimental, sharp-sighted and anxiety-ridden, L.M. Montgomery provides a compelling record of her remarkable life against the background - both social and literary - of a tumultuous period in Canadian history." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling and a few tiny edge tears, light fading to spine color, wrinkling on rear panel.
