i recently had the opportunity of reading "Anne of Green Gables" by L.M.Montgomery. it's just brilliant. its all about a young orphan girl who has wild dreams and makes up for all her miseries and misfortunes by dreaming. she chances to be adopted by an old couple(quite accidental) of Green Gables.life takes quite a turn for her. the story describes the transformation of a talkative and innocent girl to a well matured and calm lady.
i have learnt much about life from this novel. it gives good tips on learning with disapointments, inadequacies and anxieties of life
i'm sure this review has not gone too far into the plot to reveal a lot. you could give it a reading
