LoveReading View on Before Green Gables

This prequel is published to coincide with the centenary of the first publication of Anne of Green Gables. The book features Anne Shirley when she was younger living in a foster home, looking after children even though she is a child herself. It is a brutal environment and Anne’s only means of escape is through her imagination, and we learn how much of a powerful force that can be. A compelling and striking book from author Budge Wilson.

Before Green Gables Synopsis

Before she arrived at Green Gables, young Anne Shirley had a difficult early life. Orphaned as a baby, she is sent from one foster home to the next, caring for other people's children even though she is child herself, and escaping from her dark reality through the power of her vivid imagination. Anne battles to make a life for herself.
