Eleven-year-old Anne Shirley has never known a real home. Since her parents' deaths, she's bounced around to foster homes and orphanages. When she is sent by mistake to live with Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert at the snug white farmhouse called Green Gables, she wants to stay forever. But Anne is not the sturdy boy Matthew and Marilla were expecting.

Anne was always a favourtite of my mothers, and then mine when I was a teenager, but returning to her in my 30's I found the book as delightful as ever. It is such a well written story of life in a small canadian village, both witty and moving by turns. I actually laughed out loud on the tube. The book is read beautifully and the forword very interesting. I would recommend it is listened to by ALL 11 year old girls. They will love it.
