A wonderful family classic, Anne of Green Gables tells the poignant and funny story of a freckle-faced, red-haired orphan named Anne Shirley who arrives at the Bright River Railway Station full of hope for a new life. Her destination is the home of brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert in Avonlea. When she arrives at Green Gables, she is devastated to discover that the elderly couple was expecting a boy from the orphanage, and then ecstatic when they decide to keep her. With her fiery temper, love of melodrama and romance, and penchant for misadventures, she brings laughter and happiness to the home she has longed for all of her life.
