Lucy Maud Montgomery
Lucy Maud Montgomery  was born on the north shore of Prince Edward Island and raised in Cavendish where she lived until she married at age 37. 
Anne of Green Gables has been translated into 15 different languages and put on film. The story was inspired by the land, the sea and the people around her. It in turn has imparted an image of the Island that draws 350,000 visitors annually from around the world to Green Gables "I love books. I hope when I grow up to be able to have lots of them." Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote in her journal when she was just fourteen. This journal entry, made in 1889, is significant to readers today who know that when she grew up she not only owned and read many books, but also became the world famous author L. M. Montgomery. 
Maud, as she liked to be called by family and friends, wrote twenty-four books between 1908 and 1939. Her first was Anne of Green Gables, and  her other works include seven more Anne books, the Avonlea stories, the Emily trilogy, 2 novels for adults, an autobiography, and the novel The Story Girl.
L.M.Montgomery's series of books about Anne have remained classics since the early 20th century. Her portrayal of this feminine yet independent spirit has given generations of girls a strong female role model, while offering a taste of another, milder time in history. Anne of Green Gables has become synonymous with the town of Cavendish. Cavendish  has become one of the most poplar tourist stops on the North American Eastern Sea Board.

Anne of Green Gables (Unabridged Classics) (Hardcover) 
by Lucy Maud Montgomery
An orphan girl, sent to an elderly brother and sister by mistake, charms her new home and community with her firey spirit and imagination. Lucy Maud Montgomery's series of books about Anne have remained classics since the early 20th century.
Anne of Green Gables (1986) Starring: Megan Follows, Colleen Dewhurst 
Director: Kevin Sullivan
At the turn of the century on Prince Edward Island, Matthew Cuthbert and his sister Marilla decide to take on an orphan boy as help for their farm. But they get an unexpected jolt when they're mistakenly sent a girl instead: Anne Shirley. Anne's a dreamer with an unusual point of view, far removed from Marilla's pragmatic ways, and it's only on trial that Marilla agrees to keep Anne...if Anne can keep out of trouble, only Anne has a positive genius for it. As Anne falls into a series of scrapes (and off a roof), makes a bosom friend, searches (and finds) several kindred spirits, Matthew and Marilla discover that their lives have become a great deal richer, now that Anne is at Green Gables.
