Anne of Green Gables
- By: Lucy Maude Montgomery
- Narrated by: Mary Sarah
- Length: 9 hrs and 30 mins
When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables, Prince Edward Island, send for a boy orphan to help them out at the farm, they are in no way prepared for the error that will change their lives. The mistake takes the shape of Anne Shirley, a redheaded 11-year-old girl who can talk anyone under the table. Fortunately, her sunny nature and quirky imagination quickly win over her reluctant foster parents. Anne's feisty spirit soon draws many friends - and much trouble - her way.

The story is excellent, as is the narration. It's most rewarding to follow Anne's development, from awkward and unwanted orphan to fine young lady and scholar. Though certainly distinct stories, there are parallels between this book and another fine favorite, A Tree Grows In Brooklyn.
Highly recommended if you like to observe the positive growth and development of endearing characters.
