Absoutely loved this book and her life before Green Gables as told by this author was exactly how I pictured it. She is still the same Anne (spelled with an e) we all know and love from the later novels/movies. Also very heart warming because even though she has a lot of people she can't count on growing up, there are several in the town that she learns to trust and depend on. Highly recommended, especially if you are a fan of the original books/movies.
i really loved this book. as a HUGE fan of Anne of Green Gables, i was impressed that the author stuck close to the details given in the original books by LM Montgomery when writing this book so it seemed like it really could have been the first part of Anne's life.
Oh, what a delightful book! This prequel was very well done! I absolutely adored it! And though I haven't read _Anne of Green Gables_ since, well, probably grade school, it has made me want to read it again - immediately! And I really want to watch the PBS movies again, too! I am really looking forward to lending this book to my mother, since she first introduced the world of Avonlea to me. I am quite certain that she will love it just as much as I did! It is a tricky thing to add on to a piece of classic literature and this was simply wonderfully executed!
If you are a fan of Anne of Green Gables, then you will love this book. A wonderful beginning to an amazing series.... for young and old "Bosom friends".
