I really enjoyed this novel telling the story of Marilla (and Matthew) as they grew up at Green Gables. I felt the author did a very nice job of telling a story that seemed to mesh nicely with the well-loved Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery. I appreciated that the author pulled in enough details from the original series to make it believable and didn’t try to change things about the story. Reading this makes me want to go back and re-read the entire Anne of Green Gables series!
