Montgomery?s literary classic recounts the exciting adventures undertaken by the fiery eleven-year-old Anne Shirley, an orphan girl accidentally adopted by middle aged siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. A coming-of-age novel, Anne of Green Gables focuses on Anne?s new life at Green Gables farm in Avonlea and her adjustment into the Prince Edward Island community.The story launches when the aging siblings Matthew and Marilla decide that they could use an extra hand around their farm, and believe that adopting an orphan boy would be an appropriate solution. However, due to a misunderstanding, the orphanage sends Anne Shirley instead. As Matthew heads to the train station to pick up the anticipated boy, he is shocked to be greeted by a red-headed, freckled and quite talkative little girl. Oblivious to the fact that a mistake has been made, Anne cheerfully enjoys the ride to her new home not hiding her enthusiasm whatsoever. Although initially spinster Marilla requires a bit of persuasion, both siblings are drawn in by the irresistible charms of the young chatty girl and accept the orphanage?s mix-up. Undeni
Lucy Maud Montgomery naceu na Illa do Príncipe Eduardo, no Canadá, en 1874. Foi unha escritora prolífica que compuxo moitos relatos, poemas e novelas, aínda que a súa fama provén sobre todo de Anne, a de Tellas Verdes e as súas secuelas, inspiradas na súa infancia insular. Montgomery faleceu en Toronto en 1942 e foi enterrada na súa amada illa.
