Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

Anne of Green Gables  - L.M. Montgomery

I thought I'd read this once long ago, but reading it now, it felt very new to me.  I remembered some parts of it, but others seemed completely unfamiliar.  My only guess is that I confused memories of it with the TV adaptation which may have merged multiple books in the series.


Either way, it's a lovely book, full of wonderful details of Avonlea and the people in it.  Anne is quite an imaginative and chatty young girl, but it's nice to see the world through her eyes.  She sees beauty in the smallest things, something that becomes harder the older we get (at least for me).
