Anne of Green Gables by L.M Montgomery is a vintage classic story of a young red-headed orphan girl named Anne. It has been considered a classic children’s novel since the mid-20th century. Anne was born in Nova Scotia and lost her parents to a fever when she was only three months old. Anne was fostered by many but never owned by any. Anne always hoped for a loving family who would willingly take her as their own.
In the meantime, siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, from Avonlea(both unmarried) decided to adopt a boy to help work on their farm. Matthew is in his 60’s and Marilla is in her 50’s. They were both living at Green Gables, a beautiful yet mesmerizing farm at the heart of Avonlea, a community Avonlea, a community located on Prince Edward Island. They both were bored of each other and also needed a boy for help at their farm since Matthew was getting easily tired nowadays. So they informed an adoption agency that they wanted a young boy for adoption.
Matthew went to the railway station to pick up the boy and found out the agency failed to provide them with a boy and brought a girl instead. Matthew had to take her along to the Green Gables. Marilla was so angry with the agency when she saw the girl.
On the other hand, the girl agency brought was our little Anne, who already fell in love with Green Gables and the Cuthberts. The Cuthberts decided to exchange her with a boy once they got in touch with the agency. But they grew to develop affection and care for Anne and decided to make her a Cuthbert.
Anne is a funny child- she is so cheerful, hopeful, and talkative. It’s impossible not to like her. Anne and Diana Barry become best friends from the moment they meet. She is the only girl of Anne’s age who lives close to Green Gables. Diana Barry was the daughter of William and Eliza Barry. She was the companion for Anne in all of her misadventures. Anne addressed Diana as her bosom friend and a kindred spirit.
