Publisher's Summary

Historic Prince Edward Island in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence is the scene of this charming romance, which has captivated generations of readers young and old. Anne, the orphan child who brings happiness and love into the lives of her foster parents, is one of the most beloved heroines in all literature. But life was not kind to her at the start of her great adventure. For when Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, living alone, decided to adopt a child from the local orphanage, they asked for a boy. Their dismay and disappointment were great when a lonely, pathetic little girl was sent by mistake. At first Marilla was determined that Anne must be returned at once to the orphanage, but kindly, warm-hearted Matthew urged that she be given a chance to prove herself. The challenge laid down for this 11-year-old girl - and the mishaps that befall her before she can win the heart of her foster mother - make up the theme of this stirring tale.

O'Malley leaves something to be desired

While it is true that Lucy Maude Montgomery's first Anne book is charming and delightful and will produce any number of thrills and laughs, Susan O'Malley doesn't do the book justice.
I've been reading Anne every few years since I was myself not quite eleven. As such, I am conscious of a few words read wrong.
For just one example, in the affair of the Amethyst Brooch, the trees and fields vainly await Anne's "usual" greeting, but O'Malley misreads it as Anne's "unusual" greeting. Slip-ups like these may not bother the first-time listener, but I was sorely disappointed. I shall get my next Anne audiobook from a different reader for certain.
I would advise another author for this fine tale; Audible provides a wide range of Anne readings for you.

Enchanting

My family (kids aged 11 and 9) listened to this book on a cross-country trip and enjoyed every minute of it. This is an excellent story, wonderfully written and read.
