As a little girl, I thought Anne and I were kindred spirits. I still think we are kindred spirits. Doesn't matter where I go there is always a house with a name, a lake that shines and trees that talk to me. So, when I found out that there was a book, The Landscapes of Anne of Greene Gables by Catherine Reid, about to come out filled with the landscapes of Prince Edward Island and the inspiration for Avonlea. I had to take a chance and request to read it! I'm so glad to have been able to read and review this book.

The pages are beautifully filled with photos of the island, some of them personally taken by Lucy Maud Montgomery herself. The inside snippets from Maud's journals are a delight.

My only dislike of the book is the repetitive nature of some of the journal entries. Even though they are lovely, and show Maud's kinsmanship with the forests, the trees and all the rest of nature surrounding her, the book tends to share the same memories over and over. I feel that the book would have been better served if there were less instead of more of the same and let Maud's words fill the pages simply.

If you are a fan of L.M. Montgomery's and haven't had the chance to visit Prince Edward Island this book is the perfect way to tamper the ache of not having visited. I know it did for me.

I was blessed to read this book courtesy of Timber Press via NetGalley for my honest opinion. ( )

This book is absolutely stunning. Includes archival images and primary source material from L. M. Montgomery, as well as beautiful current photographs from places inspired by Anne of Green Gables. If you grew up with Anne or just love nature photography (especially of Prince Edward Island), you will love this book. ( )

**I received an advanced reader’s copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

Anne of Green Gables fans: take note of this book. Filled with colorful photographs of Prince Edward Island, this book takes readers to the island made famous by Lucy Maud Montgomery and her cast of strong female characters. Reid uses the text to compare and contrast Montgomery’s world and Anne’s world, linking personal similarities between Montgomery and Anne. Readers can also step into various museums and historic sites dedicated to Montgomery and the Cuthberts, thanks to numerous interior photographs of these locations. The inclusion of Montgomery’s own photographs of landscapes and nature at the turn of the twentieth century adds the perfect element to this book.

I loved every bit of this book. I stared at the photographs. I loved reading Montgomery’s own words to convey her love of landscape and the outdoors. This is the perfect book for Anne fans or even Montgomery fans. ( )

This book is so lovely. The illustrations are gorgeous. The book is very well written. I have never read Anne before today but look forward to reading the books that inspired this one. My sister in law is a huge fan of Anne so I plan to recommend this book to her. ( )

This was a must read for me. I love Anne of Green Gables and spent time watching the television series as we followed Anne Shirley's spunky character on her escapades while she took sleigh rides over snow covered hills and wandered through red clay paths skirted with lush trees and scenic farmland.

Yes, many years ago, I along with millions of other readers, fell in love with the landscape of Green Gables, located in Cavendish in the Prince Edward Island National Park.

What I took from this amazing collection of images and photographs was that in her writing, Lucy Maud Montgomery often focused on things that comforted her, like the beauty of the land and sky that surrounded her.
