Publisher's Summary

L. M. Montgomery’s classic tale, Anne of Green Gables, gets a romantic, charming, and hilarious modern adaptation, set in New York City.

After an idyllic girlhood in Avonlea, Long Island, Anne has packed up her trunk, said goodbye to her foster parents, Marilla and Matthew, and moved to the isle of Manhattan for grad school. Together with her best friend, Diana Barry, she’s ready to take on the world and find her voice as a writer.

When her long-time archrival Gilbert Blythe shows up at Redmond College for their final year, Anne gets the shock of her life. Gil has been in California for the last five years - since he kissed her during a beach bonfire, and she ghosted him. Now the handsome brunette is flashing his dimples at her like he hasn’t a care in the world and she isn’t buying it.

Paired with the same professor for their thesis, the two former competitors come to a grudging peace that turns into something so much deeper...and sexier than either intended. But when Gil seemingly betrays her to get ahead, Anne realizes she was right all along - she should never have trusted Gilbert Blythe.

While Gil must prove to Anne that they’re meant to be together, she must come to terms with her old fears if she wants a happily-ever-after with the boy she’s always (secretly) loved.

Editor's Pick

Kindred spirits rekindled
I spent many a long, hot West Texas summer lying on either my best friend's living room floor or watching L. M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables from start to finish, followed swiftly by Anne of Avonlea. The lovable, fierce protagonist, Anne Shirley, was one of my favorite heroines. Imagine my delight when I learned that Brina Starler's debut novel was a modern take on this nostalgic tale, set in New York City, far from Prince Edward Island. Come for the memories of the classic and stay for the updated takes on the pivotal characters, such as Diana Barry, and, of course, Anne's nemesis/soulmate Gilbert Blythe, this time around with a steamier romance. Marilla is also a presence as is her sweet brother, Matthew. Carly Robins's spirited narration brought me back to vintage Anne, channeling her characteristic feminism and dogged determination. Just in time for summer listening, just like the good old days. —[Kelley S., Audible Editor]

Meh

Carly Robins does a good job narrating a not very good retelling of Anne of green gables. Just save your time and reread the originals

My gosh I am in love

I could never imagine someone making Anne even more real and loved to me I can’t wait to share this novel with my Neice when she is older so she can love Anne as much as I do.
