Before Green Gables
Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson
What a FUN FUN read!!! If you have read the Green Gables series....and even if you haven't.....you have to go get this book and read it.
This is an authorized prequel to the popular series by L. M. Montgomery's classic series about the red-haired orphan knows as Anne of Green Gables!! (With an E)
Set in Nova Scotia, the author allows us to get to know Anne's parents and then follow her after she is orphaned at 3 months old by her school teacher parents.
We read as Anne ends up in a myriad of foster homes, through various circumstances and watch her build up hope, that finally she found a home, only to find that once again happiness is snatched away from her.
Until finally, she goes to an orphanage and then is adopted by the Cuthbert's.
FUN and interesting read!!!
