"Fishbane's affection for her subject shines through, making the character of Maud herself come alive for readers. An engaging depiction of an ambitious young woman . . . Maud is highly recommended for teen and adult readers." --National Reading Campaign

"[T]here's nothing dated about the relentless lack of understanding and warmth [Maud] experienced in her family life, something Fishbane conveys with aplomb." --The Toronto Star

"An engaging addition that will appeal to more than just fans of L.M. Montgomery." --School Library Journal

"... Maud will serve as a gateway to the world of Montgomery, which, even after more than a century, is in no danger of being exhausted." --Quill & Quire

"Fishbane places her readers in the historical and geographical environs of the teenage Montgomery and enhances their understanding of one of Canada's most beloved authors." --CM Magazine

"Fishbane's historical research is thorough and comes out beautifully in the narrative. . . . [T]he spirit of Montgomery's writing breathes subtly within the pages." --Historical Novel Society
