• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

L.M. (Lucy Maud) Montgomery was a Canadian author best known for her Anne of Green Gables series.

Works by L.M. Montgomery with their own pages:

Tropes found in other works:

  • Actually, That's My Assistant
  • Children Are Innocent / Children Are Special: Most prominently found in Magic For Marigold.
  • Cute Mute: Kilmeny, from Kilmeny of the Orchard, has been secluded and sheltered for all of her life, and retains a childlike simplicity.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Almost all of her heroines have some talent at housekeeping and cooking. Justified, as they are all of a social class and era when cooking would be in a woman's basic skill set.
    • Jane in particular takes to cooking like a duck to water, feeding both herself and her father, even though she was never allowed to cook before. She does prudently buy a cookbook first, and donuts defeat her.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Montgomery frequently revisits the character of the widowed mother who is fanatically attached to her only begotten son, and fiercely jealous of any romantic attachments in his life.
  • Growing Up Sucks: This trope hits Marigold Lesley hardest. She completely loses her ability to imagine Sylvia, her dear imaginary friend.
  • The Matchmaker: "The Education Of Betty"
  • Matchmaker Crush: "The Education of Betty"
  • Orphan's Ordeal: Anne. Emily. For starters. And there's a whole book of short stories (Akin to Anne) dedicated to nothing but orphan's ordeals.
  • The Penance
  • The Promise: Treated very darkly in Kilmeny of the Orchard. Kilmeny's aunt and uncle fervently believe her muteness is owed to a vow of silence taken by her mother during her pregnancy, to never speak another word to the father that rejected her. Even when her father lay dying and asked his daughter to speak one word of reconciliation, Kilmeny's mother refused. She didn't speak a word until after her baby's birth, when she broke down sobbing.
  • Race For Your Love: "Here Comes the Bride"
  • Real Name as an Alias: "The Pot and the Kettle"
  • The Speechless: Kilmeny.
  • The Storyteller: Emily is the most prominent.
  • Wife Husbandry: "The Education of Betty" By accident.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Pat of Silver Bush, to name one.
