Synopsis

The beloved debut of one of literature’s most irresistible young heroines

Sent to Green Gables farm by mistake, eleven-year-old orphan Anne Shirley prays that Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert will decide to keep her nevertheless. The middle-aged brother and sister wanted a boy to help around the farm; a skinny girl with bright red hair and a fiery personality to match is not at all what they need. But Anne’s quick wit and boundless imagination, developed over a lifetime spent in and out of orphanages, soon charm the Cuthberts and their Prince Edward Island friends and neighbors. The story of a special young girl finally finding her home, Anne of Green Gables is a masterpiece of children’s fiction and a true delight for readers of all ages.

About L.M. Montgomery

See more books from this Author
One of the best-loved children's/young adult authors, Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on November 30, 1874 in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, Canada, the daughter of Hugh John and Clara Woolner. After attending Prince of Wales College and Dalhouse College in Halifax, she became a certified teacher, eventually teaching in Bideford, Prince Edward Island. She also served as an assistant at the post office and as a writer for the local newspaper, The Halifax Daily Echo. Best known for her Anne of Avonlea and Anne of Green Gables books, Montgomery received many high honors. She was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 1923 and a Canadian stamp commemorates Montgomery and Anne of Green Gables. In addition, various museums dedicated to the book series and Montgomery's life dot Prince Edward Island. The books in the Anne series follow the growth and adventures of a red-haired, spritely, high-spirited and imaginative orphan named Anne who lives on Prince Edward Island. The success of these books rested in Montgomery's ability to vividly recollect childhood and her easy storytelling ability. They are tremendously popular to this day and have been translated into more than 35 languages and adapted as movies and PBS television productions. On July 5, 1911, L.M. Montgomery married Ewan Macdonald, a Presbyterian minister, and the marriage produced three children. She died on April 24, 1942.
