BOOK - L. M. Montgomery, The Norval Years 1926-1935
By Deborah Quaile

Softcover... 29.95 (C$)

Deborah Quaile has documented and compiled treasured photographs and information about the life of famed Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery' during the years that she lived in Norval, Ontario (1926 to 1935).

Lucy Maud Montgomery, (always called "Maud" by family and friends) and publicly known as L. M. Montgomery, (November 30, 1874–April 24, 1942) was a Canadian author, best known for a series of novels beginning with Anne of Green Gables.

Montgomery came to the village of Norval, Ontario with her husband, the Rev. Ewan Macdonald, who had been appointed minister of Norval and Union Presbyterian Churches, and their sons, Stuart and Chester. In addition to running the manse, teaching Sunday School and other parish duties, she became a member of the Choral Society and director of Norval's Olde Tyme Concerts held at the Anglican Parish Hall. As well, she found time to host garden parties on the lawn of the Presbyterian Church.

The village was very dear to Montgomery's heart, and she photographed and recorded in her diary her favourite walking spots along the Credit River and along Russell's Hill of Pines. The people of Norval are proud of its former resident and in this special book Deb has recorded L.M. Montgomery's village life for others to appreciate.
