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.
