The Complete Anne of Green Gables Boxed Set (Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea, Anne of the Island, Anne of Windy Poplars, Anne's House of Dreams, ... Rainbow Valley, Rilla of Ingleside)
A Canadian series of novels written by Lucy Maud (L.M.) Montgomery, in the early years of the 20th-century, revolving around Anne (make sure you spell that with an 'e'!) Shirley, an impulsive, starry-eyed, and lonely orphan girl who is accidentally sent to live with a bachelor brother and sister in the tiny village of Avonlea, Prince Edward Island.
Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert had made the entirely sensible and practical decision to request a boy from the local orphanage to help the aging Matthew around their farm, Green Gables. Instead, they found themselves confronting a very redheaded littlegirl, fantasizing about having 'raven black' hair 'rippling back from an alabaster brow' and being dressed in blue satin with puffed sleeves. Oh, and would they mind calling her 'Cordelia'?
What follows would probably be hundreds of pages' worth of nauseating, and largely forgotten, sentimentality - except that Montgomery had what so many children's authors of the time lacked: a sense of humour. Thus, the series instead charts Anne's ongoing struggle between romantic idealism and practical reality.
The compromises she reaches tend to be uneasy at best. Anne's impulsiveness and daydreaming gets her into trouble as often as her boundless creativity wins her friends and accolades; her sensitive appreciation of the natural beauty around her is relentlessly tempered by the down-to-earth sense of the people that inhabit it. Her eventual emergence as a beloved wife and mother is marred by personal tragedy, and her involvement in the tragedies of others.
The first book starts off with the heroine at age 11 and she is in her 50s in the last novel, which follows her youngest daughter through World War I.
All the settings in the original book are based around real places on the Island, and the many stories and characters woven into Anne's were often inspired by older family and traditional tales. The 'real' Green Gables and surroundings are today a veritable pilgrimage site for tourists from all over the world, and Lucy Maud Montgomery has found herself a place beside Lewis Carroll and L. Frank Baum in the canon of timeless children's literature.
