Book Review: Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson

on November 5, 2013

Before Green Gables
by Budge Wilson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really loved this “prequel” to the series about Anne of Green Gables!

I felt Budge Wilson completely captured the life and times of Anne’s “upbringing” before meeting the Cuthberts, so aptly and well … although there were times when I thought Anne spoke a little too eloquently for a 5 year old 😉

But still, that’s what we have come to expect from Anne Shirley, isn’t it?  🙂

And the stories and adventures that Budge wrote into Anne’s eleven years before we catch up with her at Avonlea, were perfectly fitting to how LM Montgomery wrote the stories since her adoption by Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert.

All round, a beautiful and delightful read and recommended to anyone who loves the Anne books as much as I do!
