Publisher's Summary

The indomitable 10-year-old Rebecca has been sent away from her home at Sunnybrook Farm to live with her two spinster aunts in the quiet town of Riverboro in order to be brought up as a proper little lady.

Precocious, curious, and full of creative energy, Rebecca isn't quite ready to be tamed yet. The prim and demanding Aunt Miranda has her hands full. But soon, Rebecca's irrepressible spirit and bright intelligence win the hearts of all in Riverboro, including her rigid aunt...and she even manages to become a fine young lady in the process.

The unconventional and charismatic Rebecca, a wholly new kind of girl character when she was first introduced in 1903, has since become one of the most beloved characters in children's literature.

(P)2007 Blackstone Audio Inc.

    "Still Great After All These Years"

    It has been fifty years since I read the covers off this book along with those of Mark Twain and other such. I think I enjoyed it more this time than my first read. How well the author deals with life issues and the death of love ones. She takes everything head on and her good natured leading lady takes the world as she finds it. It reminds me of Anne of Green Gables only with a gritty flavor.

    Story
    "a truly great, often overlooked children's classic"
    What made the experience of listening to Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm the most enjoyable?

    Lively narrator, great characters, down to earth, charming story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm?

    when they go door to door selling soap


    What does Lorna Raver bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think a lightness and at the same time a kind of straight-forward quality. No gushing here, no sentimentalizing. Just perfect!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh out loud a few times


    Any additional comments?

    wonderful book, deserves to be better known and widely loved. Probably could use a new movie version to re-spark people's interest. It's in the same class as great classics like Anne of Green Gables, Pollyana, Heidi, The House on the Prairie series, Little Women. Charming, funny, light, sweet and old fashioned in the best way-- a glimpse into another time, yet feels wonderfully modern, too.

    "A pleasant reminder of innocent days"

    It's been a very long time since I first met Miss Rebecca and I have enjoyed making her acquaintance all over again. A great plot and wonderful characters. More action than description when compared to L M Montgommery's Anne books. A pleasant narration.
