To help them through the dreary months ahead, she, Felicity, Cecily, and Dan will publish a magazine. From Personals to Fashion Notes, from the etiquette column to its stories of the most interesting happenings in Carlisle, Our Magazine quickly becomes the most entertaining publication anyone in town has ever read.

    " In some ways, The Golden Road is even stronger than The Story Girl. "

    " Nice story. I read this second book of a series before the first one so I felt like I didn't know the characters like I knew Anne or Emily. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley Moman | 2/3/2014

    " Few books capture the innocence of childhood as do the works of L.M. Montgomery. I loved her books as a little girl, and I love them still now. This one ends bittersweet - childhood innocence giving way to adulthood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arilla | 1/17/2014

    " I have been reading this book for years... i love Lucy Maud, the quiet humor and warmth of her people are relaxing and good to read. the story girl is someone you would like to know and talk to, definatly listen to... just a good book. not shakespeare but who wants to read shakespeare all the time? "

    " Liked this a lot. Perhaps a little repetitive as some of the Montgomery books are, but it was different in its own way than all the others I've read. "

About the Author

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on November 30th, 1874, in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, Canada. Although she lived during a time when few women received a higher education, Lucy attended Prince Wales College in Charlottestown, PEI, and then Dalhousie University in Halifax. At seventeen she went to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to write for a newspaper, the Halifax Chronicle, and for its evening edition, the Echo. But Lucy returned to live with her grandmother in Cavendish, PEI, where she taught and contributed stories to magazines. It was this experience, along with the lives of her farmer and fisherfolk neighbors, that came alive when she wrote her Anne books, beginning with Anne of Green Gables (1908). Anne of Green Gables brought her overnight success and international recognition. It was followed by eight other books about Anne and Avonlea, as well as a number of other delightful novels, including her Emily series, which began in 1923 with Emily of New Moon. But it is her delightful heroine Anne Shirley, praised by Mark Twain as “the most moving and delightful child of fiction since the immortal Alice,” who remains a popular favorite throughout the world. She and her husband, the Rev. Ewen MacDonald, eventually moved to Ontario. Lucy Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942.
