Publisher's Summary

When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables send for a boy orphan to help them out at their farm, they mistakenly get Anne Shirley, a feisty, independent but warm-hearted 11-year-old girl. Fortunately her sunny nature and quirky imagination win the hearts of her reluctant foster parents and everyone in the community. But not a day goes by without some memorable adventure or prank in the tragicomedy of her life. Early on she accidentally dyes her "cursed" red hair green. Later, in an effort to impress a neighbor, she bakes a cake, but with liniment instead of vanilla.

Lucy wrote that Anne is an extension of herself and represents the independent, "new" woman of the emerging 20th century. Individualistic, resourceful, and of a great humanitarian heart, she remains a great role model for girls and women today.

I absolutely love this book and the reader just made it better!

I've listened to so many different Anne of green gable stories and all the readers were different, but this one surely was the best. When Mathew died, I almost cried my heart out. Thank you for providing a great audible book! (The sleep timer really was nice)

Shamelessly sappy.

It took me until my dotage to allow myself to read this story. The courageous red haired girl orphan wins the heart of an elderly woman and her brother. The pictures of life on Prince Edward Island in horse and buggy days, the acceptance of the girl into the small town and her new family, and the usual struggles of life provide a warm journey away from today's cares.

Made more beloved to me...

Any additional comments?

Shelly Frasier takes one of my favorite books with some of my favorite characters and makes it even more beloved to me. I sampled all the readers and I am glad I chose this one. I would buy it for 10x the price as I listen to it almost nightly to listen to the matriarchal sound of Shelly Fraiser's voice. She is a performer and is able to sound like an innocent child, a blossoming girl, a strict but loving woman, and a shy and gentle hearted man. All characters are given voice, spirit, and justice. I have recommended this to everyone. If you're someone who wants to feel like your grandmother is telling you a story by the fireplace on a chilly winter day you will LOVE this!
