Winner of the Start the Year Off With the Start of a Series Poll 2018.

Finally starting today. The best way I can describe it so far is "cute"


C-shaw I started it today, and am finding it utterly charming.

Anne does talk quite a bit and has a very volitile temper - but a HUGE imagination!

I am wondering if the adults of this time period were normally this short tempered and unreasonable or if it is just done for characteriztion in the storyline?

And if the location had anything to do with it? They were "backwoods" island folk who lived a rough life during rough times.

I do love this intrepid little girl! I want to adopt her myself!

Carol | 57 comments I read this a few years ago and liked it a lot, but I'm not sure that I would find Anne endearing in person. Maybe that's because I see a lot of myself in her -- I was frequently referred to as a chatterbox as a child.

Interesting side note - just discovered that the author has the same birthday as me - just a few years earlier!
