Come to Prince Edward Island: Anne of Green Gables

Some readers of my blog may recall that last summer I went to an Anne of Green Gables brunch. So, you may know that I am a big fan of this novel. This is a recently published edition of the classic and I enjoyed sitting down and reading about Anne again.

Anne is the orphan sent to Marilla and Matthew, who had requested a boy to help with their farm. Marilla is unsure about keeping Anne while Matthew has empathy for her from the start. As you read the book watch how Marilla softens over time.

The characters in this novel are wonderful. Anne is adventurous, outspoken, warm-hearted and a loyal friend. She will take a dare and work hard to be the best student in her class. She touched my heart and could touch yours too.

Anne of Green Gables is an old fashioned book, reflecting its publication date. Nonetheless, I recommend it highly as a chapter book read aloud with a child or as a book to read for yourself as an adult.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for letting me spend time with one of my favorite fictional characters again!

  1. It’s a shocking admission but I’ve never read Anne of Green Gables. This looks like a charming edition and your description makes it sound so tempting – it is being added to my TBR list right away! 😃

    Hope all is well with you, Joyce, and life is treating you well. 🤗

    1. Hope you enjoy. There is also a book The Landscape of Anne of Green Gables that is beautifully illustrated, shows Prince Edward Island and tells more about the author’s life.
      Thanks for wishing me well. My husband has been having some health things and I am trying to remember to breathe.. Probably why the Bee doing yoga appealed to me.
      How is your partner? And you?

      1. I’m sorry to hear your husband is unwell, Joyce. I hope he is soon back to full fitness. Thank you so much for the book info. We expect my partner’s chemo to continue until June, followed by surgery. It’s early days but we’re staying positive. It’s very kind of you to ask. All the best.
