I Never Knew

It has recently been revealed that Canadian author Lucy Maude Montgomery took her own life. I am so sad for her. Her books have brought so much joy. (Via Feminine Genius)

I never would have guessed! =O

I'm reading Anne of Green Gables right now. It's only my second time in about fifteen years, and it's just so lovely and bursting with joy. How sad that Montgomery knew such depression and suffering. =(

I never knew, either.

Poor soul, how she must have suffered to do such a thing.

oh my!! I never would have guessed either! _Anne of Green Gables_ is filled with such a clever view of looking at life, always with a keen sense of humor! I know Ms Montgomery must have been terribly distraught and ill to have been driven to do such a thing. I pray for her soul to rest in the eternal peace of Our Merciful and All-Understanding, All-Seeing Lord.

I never knew this. I knew her married life was fraught with some difficulties, but this is sad news. She must have written of her dreams.
