Review: Anne of Green Gables a Surprisingly Enjoyable Book
Anne of Green Gables I just finished Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. Admittedly, it was a slow start. However, it grew on me. The rich imagination, the dramatic heart, and the romantic undertones were lovely. This is a wonderful children's novel. I hope to read the next in the series. I picked it up after seeing Tim Challies post on why Anne of Green Gables was one of his favorite novels. I encourage you to read it.
