“My favorite adoption story is Anne of Green Gables” Judith Land | Adoption Detective

“I was greatly inspired by Anne, an orphan and unique individual of good character who is hardworking and inspirational. She is relentless, plucky, and succeeds in life through goal setting, perseverance and diligence, and by surrounding herself with persons of substance. I highly recommend this book and television series.” –Judith Land

Anne of Green Gables | Judith Land | Adoption Detective

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novel Anne of Green Gables—a bestselling story that has sold more than 50 million copies, been translated into 36 languages, and been adapted as films, movies, plays and musicals. China rated the story (2012) as one of the 50 most influential novels of all time.

The character-driven story recounts how a young orphan girl Anne makes her way in the world. After spending her early years with strangers and in orphanages, Anne is adopted by an older couple living on a farm in Nova Scotia. Anne is bright and quick, eager to please, talkative, and extremely imaginative. She has a distinctive appearance with a pale face with freckles, and usually braids her red hair. The theme is profound, the rural setting on a farm in Nova Scotia alluring, and the reasons for her actions understandable. She is ambitious and leads an interesting realistic life. Readers are nourished by her journey and connect with her by bringing along many of their own quests, and associations with adoption.
