|Availability:||In stock (1)|
The celebrated classic about a red-headed orphan and the family who falls in love with her.
Written for all ages, it has been considered a classic children's novel since the mid-twentieth century.
Set in the late 19th century, the novel recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley, a 13-year-old orphan girl, who is mistakenly sent to two middle-aged siblings, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who had originally intended to adopt a boy to help them on their farm in the fictional town of Avonlea in Prince Edward Island, Canada. The novel recounts how Anne makes her way through life with the Cuthberts, in school, and within the town.
Anne of Green Gables—the inspiration for the Netflix series Anne with an E—is a much loved classic that explores all the vulnerability, expectations, and dreams of a child growing up. It is a wonderful portrait of a time, a place, a family...and most of all, love.
