Anne Shirley, 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.
Since its publication in 1908, Anne of Green Gables has been a continuous
international best-seller, enjoying successful television adaptations on PBS and The
Disney Channel and captivating children and adults alike with the irresistible charms of
its remarkable heroine. This wildly imaginative, red-headed chatterbox tries to fit into the
narrow confines of Victorian expectations, but her exuberant spirit keeps leaping
delightfully beyond the bounds.
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 girland the mishaps that befall her before she
wins the heart of her foster mothermake up the theme of this stirring tale.
Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874–1942) was born in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, Canada. She attended Prince Wales College in Charlottestown and Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She returned to live with her grandmother in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, which became the basis for her "Anne" books. Anne of Green Gables (1908) brought her overnight success.
