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 too well 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 berfet, left behind and left–there’s an orphan in us all.
I’m celebrating the release of “Anne of Green Gables,” My Daughter, and Me all month long over on my blog. Drop in for a little Peace, Love & Raspberry Cordial and all the latest musings on my book and all things Anne!
