Publisher's Summary

The indomitable 10-year-old Rebecca has been sent away from her home at Sunnybrook Farm to live with her two spinster aunts in the quiet town of Riverboro in order to be brought up as a proper little lady. Precocious, curious, and full of creative energy, Rebecca isn't quite ready to be tamed yet. The prim and demanding Aunt Miranda has her hands full. But soon, Rebecca's irrepressible spirit and bright intelligence win the hearts of all in Riverboro, including her rigid aunt...and she even manages to become a fine young lady in the process.
The unconventional and charismatic Rebecca, a wholly new kind of girl character when she was first introduced in 1903, has since become one of the most beloved characters in children's literature.

Still Great After All These Years

It has been fifty years since I read the covers off this book along with those of Mark Twain and other such. I think I enjoyed it more this time than my first read. How well the author deals with life issues and the death of love ones. She takes everything head on and her good natured leading lady takes the world as she finds it. It reminds me of Anne of Green Gables only with a gritty flavor.
