A charming and heartwarming true story for anyone who has ever longed for a place to belong. “Anne of Green Gables,” My Daughter, and Me is a witty romp through the classic novel; a visit to the magical shores of Prince Edward Island; and a poignant personal tale of love, faith, and loss.
And it all started with a simple question: “What’s an orphan?” The words from my adopted daughter, Phoebe, during a bedtime reading of Anne of Green Gables stopped me in my tracks. How could I, who grew up not knowing my own birth parents, answer Phoebe’s question when I had wrestled all my life with feeling orphaned—and learned that not every story has a happy ending?
This book speaks to the woman who’s been abandoned, broken-up with; maybe she’s been cast-off or snubbed by friends. We’ve all felt bereft, left behind and left–there’s an orphan in us all.
