Historic Prince Edward Island in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence is the scene of this charming romance, which has captivated generations of readers young and old. Anne, the orphan child who brings happiness and love into the lives of her foster parents, is one of the most beloved heroines in all literature. But life is not kind to her at the start of her great adventure. For when Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, living alone, decide to adopt a child from the local orphanage, they ask for a boy. Their dismay and disappointment are great when a lonely, pathetic little girl is sent by mistake. At first Marilla is determined that Anne must be returned at once to the orphanage, but kindly, warm-hearted Matthew urges that she be given a chance to prove herself. The challenge laid down for this eleven-year-old girl-and the mishaps that befall her before she wins the heart of her foster mother-make up the theme of this stirring tale.

This is a good book! And I am still listening to the playaway - I love hearing some of my favorite lines from the miniseries. However, this particular narrator is not the best. She doesn't really feel like the characters - she's just reading. Also, this is an early playaway version = very choppy recording and is likely to shut off at any time.

A classic that should be a required read for every girl despite Anne's whininess; she manages to display a feminism and gentileness that would soften any heart.

A classic, of course, and good whether its the first or tenth time you've read it. Anne if bright and cheery and as long as you are comfortable reading in the style of LM Montgomery, the story will simply suck you in.
