When Matthew Cuthbert goes to the train station to fetch the boy he and his sister, Marilla, requested from an orphanage, he discovers that a terrible mistake has been made. A girl has been sent instead! Not having the heart to disappoint her, however, he agrees to take Anne home to Green Gables … where she walks into their home and into their hearts. Filled with warmth, wonder, and the innocence of childhood, it’s a delightful tale for readers of all ages! Features the eight original half-tone illustrations by M. A. and W. A. J. Claus. The bio was almost a year in the writing, involving as it did the Lucy Maud Montgomery Estate and Dr. Mario Rubio, of the University of Guelph (the world’s foremost authority on the life of Montgomery) in Canada. Also included are thought-provoking discussion questions to help the reader get the most out of the story. 1999 hardback. 283 pages. Published by Focus on the Family / Tyndale. Rare.
