Tonight, we’ll read the third chapter to “Anne of Green Gables” the classic 1908 novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery. This chapter is titled “Marilla Cuthbert is Surprised.”
Written for all ages, this book recounts the adventures of an eleven year old orphan named Anne Shirley on Prince Edward Island, Canada.
In the last episode, we learn that all women scare timid Matthew, except for his sister Marilla, and his neighbor Mrs. Rachel. He rides his horse and buggy to the train station to pick up the orphan boy that turns out to be a talkative girl. Instead of insisting that she turn back around due to the mistake, he chooses to let her ride all the way home, and let the more assertive Marilla give the bad news.
