Reading for Pleasure
This month’s book has been recommended by one of our home schoolers in Staines, UK. I like this book because you feel like you are there in the story by the way the author describes the events in the story. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to connect the book they read.
Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert are unmarried siblings who live on their ancestral farm, Green Gables, in the quiet town of Avonlea in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Matthew is sixty, and since he is getting too old to handle the farm work on his own, the Cuthbert’s decide to adopt an orphan boy to help him. This decision shocks the town gossip, Mrs. Rachel Lynde, who does not think Matthew and Marilla are fit to parent a child. However, instead of boy, a skinny red haired girl turns up instead. Feisty and full of spirit, it is not long before Anne finds herself in all kinds of trouble, but soon it’s impossible to imagine life at Green Gables without her.
