'Oh, it seems so wonderful that I'm going to live with you and belong to you. I've never belonged to anybody' When a scrawny, freckled girl with bright red hair arrives on Prince Edward Island, Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are taken by surprise; they'd asked for a quiet boy to help with the farm work at Green Gables. But how can you return a friendless child to a grim orphanage when she tells you her life so far has been a 'perfect graveyard of buried hopes'? And so, the beguiling chatterbox stays. Full of dreams, warmth and spirit, it is not long before Anne Shirley wins their hearts.

Anne of Green Gables is such a lovely story. It's about an orphan with a big imagination.
But how can Anne be sent away from Green Gables after she's dreamt all her life for a real home? 
I would definitely recommend this book!
