I am a longtime Montgomery fan, especially of her two adult novels. Long ago, as a teen, I read all her (available) journals, so I knew she had a rough life, with joy slowly drained out of it; I wasn't surprised or disillusioned by this biography.
Why did I give it one star? It was written in a dry, relentlessly dreary way. In a way that erased all the charm Montgomery had within her own honest journals and left only dusty boredom.
The cover illustration is lovely, though.
