Anne Shirley is an eleven-year-old orphan, and an irrepressible beguiling chatterbox, who, through an error, comes to live with Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert on Prince Edward Island, Canada. Her sunny temperament wins the affections of her foster parents and many friends, but her quirky nature lands her in frequent trouble. This series follows Anne as she grows up to be both feminine and strongly independent, until her 50s when her children become the focus of the story.
The eight novels in The Anne of Green Gables Omnibus form a most enjoyable and widely loved series. (Includes Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea, Anne of the Island, Anne of Windy Poplars, Anne's House of Dreams, Anne of Ingleside, Rainbow Valley, Rilla of Ingleside; all unabridged.)
