Anne of Green Gables is a book written by Lucy Maud Montgomery and published in 1908. It is considered a book of children's literature although it was written for all ages.
The book tells us the life of Anne Shirley and takes place in the late nineteenth century. Anne is an extremely creative and imaginative girl who achieves the sympathy of all the inhabitants of the small fictional fishing village of Avonlea.
Anne is an orphan girl who is adopted, after a childhood spent in strangers' homes and orphanages, by brothers Marilla Cuthbert and Matthew Cuthbert, who live in Green Gables, to help them with the farm. They were expecting a boy, but finally this smart eleven-year-old girl arrives at Green Gables.
The plot of the book narrates Anne's upbringing at school, her friendships and enmities with other children, her literary ambition and, ultimately, her life in the small town of Avonlea.

Matthew, much to his own surprise, was enjoying himself. Like most quiet folks he liked talkative people when they were willing to do the talking themselves and did not expect him to keep up his end of it.
