As beautiful and wonderful as it is heartbreaking, this authorized prequel is a must-read for all Anne fans. I would recommend reading it after the original series though to get the full picture and appreciate what's going on.

I loved this book. I hope that you are able to enjoy the book, understanding that it is not written by maud. Mauds children have okayed the book and it is a good read

absolutely amazing. I also read this before I read any of the other books in the green gables series, and this book galvanized me into reading the rest. the author's style really keeps you hooked; it is so tender and heart wrenching when you read some of Anne's misfortunes as a young girl. Some of the parts made me tear up; it was emotionally moving. Highly recommended!

I read this book after I had read most of the Anne of Green Gables series. When I read this, it gave me more understanding of what Anne was talking about, when she referred to her years "before Green Gables." Definitely a wonderful book!

I had this on order before it was even published and then waited several weeks after I got it to actually read it. It just seemed so wrong to meddle with Anne. Well when I finally took the plunge I was so surprised. Wilson did a great job and I think this is as close to Maudes voice as we could possibly get. The tone and language arent exactly the same but she obviously took pains to make them match as much as she could. This story is a very superior prequal to Green Gables than the awful Sullivan Entertainment hack job.
