Anne of the Island is a great example of how a girl can be strong-minded and goal-oriented, but still feminine.
Anne, of course! ;) But I think all of the girls at Patty's Place are great supporting characters. I particularly enjoy Philippa. She's a riot with her awareness of her own beauty and yet she's as humble as can be because she realizes beauty isn't everything.
Barbara Caruso brings the characters to life and gives them their own little
I always laugh and let out a whoop when she and Gilbert FINALLY get engaged! :)
If you love the Anne books, I really don't know how you can be disappointed with Barbara Caruso's reading of them. Other versions I've listened to have either lacked enthusiasm or made Anne sound air-headed and screechy. Caruso captures the essence of Anne's imagination as well as her kind heart. I will be listening to this audiobook over and over!
