Is Anne just Maud in disguise? In this episode, we take a look at how the two are the same and how abruptly the similarities end.
Maud insists Anne of Green Gables sprang from her imagination, but the parallels between Maud’s life and her red-headed heroine are too close not to examine. Was she inspired by the news of the day? Or by a starlet who was embroiled in a scandalous murder case? In this episode, we look at all the factors that led Maud to Green Gables and what she was up against as she wrote it.
