"I'd like to add some beauty to life," said Anne dreamily. "I don't exactly want to make people KNOW more... though I know that IS the noblest ambition... but I'd love to make them have a pleasanter time because of me... to have some little joy or happy thought that would never have existed if I hadn't been born." 
 L.M. Montgomery (Anne's House of Dreams)

I have never read it. Am I missing out on a good story?
I grew up reading adventure/sci-fi and the like and always considered it a girly book like Heidi or Black Beauty and little Women.
My boys received it a few years ago in a box set of classics. Doubt it'll get read by them...

A haaa kindred spirits!!

Ali...it would not be putting it too strong to say, it underlines and has influenced my very 'me'! My I-Ching!!

But perhaps I read it at the perfect time, maybe I am just very girly??

Who knows!

I would urge you to read it, but I couldn't bear for you not to absolutely love it...

Please please do, but never tell 'me if you think it's 'fluff'...x

(crikey! Bet you weren't expecting that ;-))
