Anne of Green Gables: Three Volumes in One by L.M. MontgomeryMark Twain prolaimed Anne Shirley the most moving and delightful and dearest heroine since the immortal Alice. Millions of readers young and old, in countries all over the world, have agreed; particularly those hovering on the brink of their teens have followed her dauntless leadership into those years of excitement, pain, and discovery, finding her a source of endless fascination, humor, inspiration, and reassurance.
Annes romantic soul, her idealism, and her adventurous spirit often lead her into mishaps, but she always survives, learning from her experience, and the read does too, while enjoying her marvelous adventures. Fiercely independent and outspoken, Anne is not afraid of conflicts with her elders - this, in an age (the early 1900s) when childeren were seen and not heard. But Annes bright intelligence, honesty, and resourcefulness are impossible to defeat, and she carries the day. Her story spoke to the readers of the time, as it does still, to the young, and the young at heart, today.
Anne of Green Gables, the first novel, introduces our lively heroine at age eleven, fresh from an orphanage, when she must win the right to stay at Green Gables with the taciturn Matthew Cuthbert and his reserved sister, Marilla, and takes her into her teens. In Anne of Avonlea, she is the village schoolteacher and the story takes her up to her preparations to enter college. Finally, Annes House of Dreams, the most romantic, and, many believe, the best of the Anne books, finds Anne, now a lovely young woman, on the verge of her marriage to a young doctor whom she has known and loved for years, and describes the fulfillment of her dreams of romance and career, in a village peopled with memorable characters.
This volume is uniquely illustrated with period drawings that evoke the era in which Anne was created and were taken from books and magazines of the day. One can do no better than to quote an editorial from one of those magazines, The Housewife, in describing Anne: Droll one minute, pathetic the next; staid and wise as a grandmother one minute, bubbling over with impish mischief the next, but always lovable. Contemporary readers will find her just as engaging, as they follow her from lonely waif to fulfilled young woman.

Anne Of Green Gables. Ilove reading books about the past and Lucy Maud Montgomery is a terrific writer. She discribes things so beautifully. I had found another of her books in a thrift store and then discovered that she had written a whole series of books. I still have more books in the series to read, but, I have enjoyed the ones I have read so far. This review is more like a lesson; I bought used when I should have bought new.

Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables #1)
She also served as an assistant at the post office and as a writer for the local newspaper, The Halifax Daily Echo. In addition, various museums dedicated to the book series and Montgomery's life dot Prince Edward Island. The books in the Anne series follow the growth and adventures of a red-haired, spritely, high-spirited and imaginative orphan named Anne who lives on Prince Edward Island. The success of these books rested in Montgomery's ability to vividly recollect childhood and her easy storytelling ability. They are tremendously popular to this day and have been translated into more than 35 languages and adapted as movies and PBS television productions.
