A Tangled Web
A Tangled Web | Lucy Maud Montgomery
11 posts | 6 read | 7 to read
This early work by Lucy Maud Montgomery was originally published in 1931 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'A Tangled Web' is a tale that follows a family through a year of heartbreak and hilarity in a scramble to acquire a family heirloom. Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on 30th November 1874, New London, in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. Her mother, Clara Woolner (Macneil), died before Lucy reached the age of two and so she was raised by her maternal grandparents in a family of wealthy Scottish immigrants. In 1908 Montgomery produced her first full-length novel, titled 'Anne of Green Gables'. It was an instant success, and following it up with several sequels, Montgomery became a regular on the best-seller list and an international household name. Montgomery died in Toronto on 24th April 1942.

Pluses: LMM's writing style is charming and whimsical; she evokes a strong sense of place and time; her characters are very real with their littlenesses and flaws on full display yet likeable for the most part; the use of a truly hideous sounding family relic as a catalyst for a year of change worked brilliantly. Minuses: there are sooo many characters & it's hard to keep them all straight; the end was abrupt and jarring. Overall a pick.

I'm very much a mood reader, so I may end up deciding I'm not on the mood for these, but I'm going to try to commit to these beauties for the #BookAWeekChallenge
@TheReadingMermaid

TheReadingMermaid Artemis was so good 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 9mo
bookandbedandtea @TheReadingMermaid I absolutely loved The Martian and was so excited when I found out he was writing another book but I've found that when I'm really excited about a book I tend to put off reading it. I don't know why I do that but it's become a definite pattern. 🤔 9mo
TheReadingMermaid Well I'd definitely recommend this one. Very good! 9mo

I am late to the party with #greatfirstlines. So I went to my book shelf and pulled some out until I found one I liked. I am very curious about the old Dark jug now. #booktober @RealLifeReading

So different from Anne, but the same comforting, homey writing that I love.
