Melanie Fishbanes debut novel is inspired by the life of Lucy Maud Montgomery, famous world-wide for her creation of Canada's most beloved fictional character, Anne of Green Gables. With Danika Lochhead, Cecily and Melanie share the challenges they encountered as they evoked the spirits of these well-known women and the times in which they lived and wrote, and together ponder the place of women in the literary world, then, and now.
