Anne of Green Gables (1908) was an immediate
best seller when it was published by the L.C. Page Company of Boston.
Eleven-year-old, red-haired, imaginative, talkative orphan, Anne Shirley,
is adopted by a quiet, elderly brother and sister on a farm on Prince
Edward Island in the late 1870's though they had sent for a boy. Anne
bursts into the staid life of the community and takes the reader through
many comic and touching episodes as she goes to school and matures. Her
rivalry with Gilbert Blythe suggests a romance to come.
