This showed up for free or nearly so for my Kindle, and I loved Anne of Green Gables as a teenager so I gave it a try. Although I may be remembering the Anne of Green Gables series too fondly, this story didn't live up to what Montgomery was capable of. The love story was predictable, and the language at times degenerated into sentimental tripe. Although distrust of foreigners was part of the times in which she wrote, encountering it so openly in her descriptions of Neil Gordon was disappointing. All told, I wonder if I should reread The Anne series before handing them off to my daughter. (nah. I'll just read them along with her...)
