Publisher's Summary

Featured title on PBS's The Great American Read in 2018

Eleven-year-old orphan Anne Shirley has just arrived at Green Gables, and already her guardians want to send her back. First, she's not the boy the Cuthberts expected. Second, she talks too much. And even with her generous spirit, the redhead's a trouble magnet. She gets the neighbor drunk and nearly poisons the pastor!

Still, despite a rocky start, the fiery Anne wins over her guardians and her new community. She enjoys life at Green Gables, excels in school, and earns a coveted scholarship. But when tragedy hits, Anne must choose between her dreams and the only home she's ever known.

In this beloved coming-of-age story, Lucy Maud Montgomery drew from her own experiences growing up in Canada during the 19th century to introduce generations of readers and listeners to one of literature's most original and inspiring characters.

AmazonClassics brings you timeless works from the masters of storytelling. Ideal for anyone who wants to read a great work for the first time or rediscover an old favorite, these new editions open the door to literature's most unforgettable characters and beloved worlds.

A classic

It was fun listening to the story of a young orphan that was both imaginative and caring in spite of her origin or the mix up in her placement with the adoptive family sight unseen. She develops friendships and rivalries that change into friendships and gives love and laughter to some older people who have lacked joy for too long.

This book fills the reader with hope for life despite of the circumstances that may be faced along the way. It certainly became one of my favorites.
