Lucy Maud Montgomery
This wonderfully funny story follows young Anne (with an "e") as she finds people to love, finds her place in the world, and eventually grows into her own after quite a few hilarious and heartrending mishaps and misunderstandings. In writing the story of Anne, Lucy Maud Montgomery managed to portray life the way it was meant to be for young teenagers, the way we all want it to be – full of triumphs, challenges, caring friends and the sometimes tempestuous beginnings of love.
Internationally acclaimed and possibly the most popular Canadian novel ever written, Anne of Green Gables has been charming readers of all ages throughout the world for over a century. Mark Twain wrote to Lucy Maud Montgomery about the character Anne Shirley saying she was "the dearest, and most lovable child in fiction since the immortal Alice."
