This heartwarming story has beckoned generations of readers into the special world of Green Gables, an old-fashioned farm outside a town called Avonlea. Anne Shirley, an eleven-year-old orphan, has arrived in this verdant corner of Prince Edward Island only to discover that the Cuthberts--elderly Matthew and his stern sister, Marilla--want to adopt a boy, not a feisty redheaded girl. But before they can send her back, Anne--who simply must have more scope for her imagination and a real home--wins them over completely. A much loved classic that explores all the vulnerability, expectations, and dreams of a child growing up, Anne of Green Gables is also a wonderful portrait of a time, a place, a family...and most of all, love.

About the Author

Lucy Maud (L.M.) Montgomery (1874-1942) began her career writing for a newspaper in Halifax, Nova Scotia, before returning to her native Prince Edward Island. Her short stories soon began appearing in the Family Herald and children's magazines. Anne of Green Gables (1908) was actually written first as a serial for a Sunday school paper, but it quickly became her immensely successful first novel, bringing her international recognition. That title was followed by eight more books about Anne and Avonlea and a number of other entertaining novels, including her Emily series, which began in 1923 with Emily of New Moon. But it is Anne Shirley, praised by Mark Twain as "the dearest and most lovable child in fiction since the immortal Alice," who remains a popular favorite throughout the world.

just think if siblings matthew and marilla cuthbert had decided to send the skinny little red headed girl child named anne back to the orphanage in favour of the boy they originally wanted to adopt, what adventures and good times the world would have missed out on. luckily they didnt and all readers can enjoy anne's life as told in this book

I recommend this book with my whole heart! It is lively and descriptive, touching on love and family, romance, humour, sorrow - even a bit of politics and quite a lot of religion! Anne of Green Gables comes to life in this novel and the reader will grow to love her, her home of Avonlea and Prince Edward Island. I would also recommend the other books which Montgomery penned as sequels to this novel.
