The story takes place at the beginning of the last century. Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew Cuthbert from Green Gables live in Avonlea on Prince Edward Island. Getting too old, they decide to adopt a boy to relieve Matthew of some of the farm chores. However, when Matthew arrives at the train station, the only person waiting for him is Anne Shirley, a young red hair orphan. The child shows to be resourceful, bright and intelligent. Anne also has a great sensitivity and a limitless imagination.  The young orphan will conquer the hearts of the timid Matthew and the strict Marilla and soon makes her place in Avonlea.

The story follows the life of a romantic and imaginative Anne Shirley, her adventures with her best friend Diana Barry, her bicker and love story with her classmate Gilbert Blythe and much more.

Anne of Green Gables is a story full of charm, poetry, simplicity. Why does the story appeal to so many young girls and women? Perhaps it is Anne gift to recognize a bit of good in every person. Maybe it is Anne ability to see a special something in everything she lays her eyes on, her ways of describing a tree, a small valley covered with flowers, a delightful alley shaded by trees. Or is it the overall Anne “joie de vivre”. The story is also parsed with humor and picttoresque surprises, descriptions and images of the beautiful landscapes in Prince Edward Island.

Either you are reaching for the wonderful books by Lucy Maud Montgomery or for the screen adaptation Anne of Green Gables DVD, the story is a great discovery and will move you.
