I introduced a young girl (and her mother!) to Anne of Green Gables!
They have never read any of Montgomery's books or even seen a movie adaptation. They are as fresh as they can come. And oh my goodness, I do think they will love it! The girl is the same age I was when I first encountered Montgomery via Anne. And we now all see what hopeless romantic self that ended up in! Oh well. Would or could I be me any other way? Besides, Montgomery is always a great start to someday introduce her to....Austen!
(Am I the only one who notices tendencies of Montgomery fans to be Austen fans, too?)
