Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery follows about 5 years in the life of Anne Shirley from the point where a mistake is made and she comes to live with brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert (they were expecting an orphan boy instead of a girl) to just before she becomes a school teacher. Anne worms her way into everyone’s hearts and mellows Marilla quite a bit over the years. The story is sweet and heartwarming. The speeches made by the characters were often overly long. The ending was a bit of a surprise and quite unfair as it was coming to a nice, happy ending when bad things suddenly happened to change everything all around.
