"Rubio deftly paints the portrait of a multitasking modern woman
with an amazing work ethic. The biography soars with the energy of
its title, but delves even deeper into Montgomery's dark side."
-- The Globe and Mail
"A poignant story about a real family.... The result of Rubio's research is pure Canadian Gothic: a story of sexual repression, class conflict and family secrets."
-- The Gazette (Montreal)
"Absolutely gripping ... nothing short of brilliant, an
un-put-downable read, and a wonderful examination of this troubled
woman's tragic life."
