Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery

This is a Librivox recording.

For some reason, I never read this book as a child. It would have been the perfect book for me, way back in the day, too. I used to have an imagination that would rival Anne's but, alas, I work in an accounting firm now. Any whimsy I had has been zapped.

Anne is an orphan who ends up with the Cuthberts, brother and sister who anticipated getting a boy to help them with the farm at Green Gables. Anne grew on the Cuthberts and she ended up staying.

The book travels several years and follows Anne on her imaginative adventures, her mishaps and concludes with her as a teenager and becoming a woman.

Highly recommended!
