Marilla Of GreenGables

If you love Anne Of Green Gables, then you will love this new fictional novel by Sarah McCoy about Marilla before Anne arrives on her doorstep. This sweet novel imagine’s what Marilla’s life was like before Anne Shirley came into her life. Since I’m a huge fan of the 1980’s mini series I always imagined what happened between John Blythe and Marilla. Having become a fan of the new Netflix show “Anne With An E,” I wondered if Marilla’s mother really did pass after childbirth. This novel stirs the imagination as to why Marilla turned out so strict and reserved.

Marilla was never my favorite character in Anne Of Green Gables. I always found her reserved, strict, emotionless and boring. This book peels back her stone exterior to the true heartfelt woman beneath her protective layers. A lot of stories within this novel remind me a lot of Anne’s adventures. This book brings Marilla to life.

I received my complimentary ARC copy of Marilla Of Green Gables by Sarah McCoy from William Morrow care of TLC Book Tours. The opinions I express in this review are my own. To find out more about the author check out her website. To purchase a gorgeous copy via Amazon.
