By L. M. Montgomery
“I’ve just been imagining that it was really me you wanted after all and that I was to stay here for ever and ever. It was a great comfort while it lasted. But the worst of imagining things is that the time comes when you have to stop and that hurts.”
– Anne Shirley

In the old-fashioned town of Avonlea, Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert seek an orphaned boy’s help to keep Green Gables running. When dreamer Anne is sent instead of the desired boy, Marilla and Matthew must decide whether they will keep Anne at Green Gables with them or send her back to the orphanage. Anne’s love of beauty and imagination blossoms at the thought of a forever home, but if she is to stay at Green Gables, she must learn to restrain her romanticism and become a well-mannered young lady.
This is a magical coming-of-age story about a whimsical young girl who deeply desires a place to belong, a life full of imagination and beauty, and a deep friendship with a kindred spirit.
Death and Sickness.
