“My family and I are so pleased to partner with Sourcebooks,” [Montgomery's granddaughter] said. “...[my grandmother] would be pleased and, possibly, astonished, to know that Anne of Green Gables continues to enchant both returning readers and a new generation who are discovering her novels for the first time.”
