I found this book in the discount section of Waterstones and I just had to have it. This is because the last time I came across and read this book was when I was about 11 years old and much of it I had forgotten, but I did remember feeling a little confused after reading it. This might have been because at that age I wasn’t familiar with the style of writing (published in 1908), but I remember enjoying it so I thought I would give it another go!
“Marilla felt helpless that all this should be sternly reported, but she was hampered by the undeniable fact that some of the things Anne had said, especially about the minister’s sermons and Mr Bell’s prayers, were what she herself had really thought deep down in her heart for years, but had never given expression to. It almost seemed to her that those secret, unuttered, critical thoughts had suddenly taken visible and accusing shape and form in the person of this outspoken morsel of neglected humanity.” (85)
