Lucy Maud Montgomery was a Canadian author and she was born in 1874. She started to life very dramatically because her mother was died when Lucy Maud was twenty-one months and her father gave her custody to maternal grandparents. However, this was not only thing that hard in Lucy’s life because her grandparents had strict and unforgiving manner so her early life was very lonely. To alternate this loneliness, she created some imaginary friends. After this tragic childhood, she studied literature at Dalhousie University and started to teaching.
She wrote her first novel in 1905 but it was rejected by every publishing house. On the other hand, she never gave up from writing and she tried to sell her book a couple years later. In that time the story had a hit and that book became one of Canada’s most popular books. The book- Anne of Green Gables- was translated twenty languages and made Lucy Maud a very successful author. She also had lots of stories and poems so we can say that she was interested in almost all types of literature.
Montgomery suffered from depression because of the fact that she had to take care her mentally ill husband. After she was dead due to coronary thrombosis in 1942 there were some speculations about her way of death. Some people believe that she committed a suicide and took overdose drug. Although this arguments, we remember Montgomery with her excellent book. Also, in her 141th birthday, we saluted her with a Google Doodle contains her most iconic book.
