HOUSE OF DREAMS: The Life of L.M. Montgomery

by Liz Rosenberg | Read by Susan Hanfield

Children Ages 10+ • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This audiobook introduces listeners to Maud Montgomery, a much more complicated woman than the L.M. Montgomery they know as the author of ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. Maud was plagued all her life by depression, unsupportive relations, and legal difficulties, finding relief in education and her writing. She is one of Canada’s most successful and celebrated writers. Susan Hanfield’s narration varies from an almost musical quality to a faster, sharper reading when discussing Maud’s husband’s mental illness. For Maud’s first-person journal entries, she uses a soft, contemplative voice that brings an immediacy to the account. This is a title that fans of L.M. Montgomery will enjoy, as it will give then insight into this prolific and beloved author and her writing. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
