7 Books To Read If You've Already Marathoned Every Episode Of 'Anne With An E'
By Catherine Reid
The Lake of Shining Waters, Lover’s Lane, Green Gables — if you’re an Anne of Green Gables fan like I am, the images behind these beautiful landscapes bring to life the spunky, red-headed heroine you know and love. Every moment with Anne feels unique and splendid, whether viewing the island for the first time while riding to Green Gables from the railway station, running through the winter fields after saving Minnie Mae from a rough bout of croup, or bringing home the cows on a color-lit autumn night. Who wouldn’t want to jump back into Maud Montgomery’s vivid imagination, her fierce intellect, and her ability to capture a world she knew so intimately?
For those unfamiliar with the Anne of Green Gables series, the books follow a young orphan named Anne who is sent to Prince Edward Island in Canada to live with siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, both in their sixties. At first, the Cuthberts are reluctant to let her stay, as they'd requested the orphanage send a boy to help with the farm. But Anne's vivacious spirit quickly wins them over.
