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 her adopted daughter, Phoebe, during a bedtime reading of Anne of Green Gables stopped Lorilee Craker in her tracks. How could Lorilee, who grew up not knowing her own birth parents, answer Phoebe’s question when she had wrestled all her life with feeling orphaned—and learned too well that not every story has a happy ending?

I found this memoir to be good, maybe a bit lengthy. I would recommend it for addressing everyone’s need to belong. Love. Acceptance. Belonging.
This would also be an especially nice book for an Anne of Green Gables (Lucy Maud Montgomery) fancier. Not “my” favorite but a good book nonetheless.
