A Breaking Bad writer who won an Emmy for her work on the show, Moira Walley-Beckett, is said to be behind the eight-part series. As a child, Anne Shirley is taken in by a couple of well-off siblings who were looking to take in a male farmhand in the year 1890. Shirley’s exploits on Prince Edward Island, a fictitious, enchanted island, captivated bookworms. While we doubt Walley-Beckett would inject the traditional narrative with Walter White-level dishonesty, we do believe this has the potential to be a more hip and up-to-date take on the subject. Netflix and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation have teamed up to produce the show, which will premiere in 2017 but no casting news has been released. Set your calendars, and we’re ready to go.

Green Gable’s prequel Sarah McCoy returns to Green Gables as a lifelong fan

Prequel’s novel ‘Marilla of Green Gables tells the story of Marilla Cuthberts and her husband, Matthew, before Anne came to live with them on the farm. With “Marilla of Green Gables,” internationally bestselling author Sarah McCoy paid respect to L.M. Montgomery’s “Anne of Green Gables” series. Montgomery’s book, according to McCoy, connects with today’s readers because “it is about one old woman, one old man, and one unwanted orphan who breach social conventions while celebrating the traditions of the heart.”. As a family, they endure adversity, fear, and failures together.

It was an Emotional Experience

‘You can, too,’ the novel urges its readers.” Author McCoy, who previously wrote “The Mapmaker’s Children” and “The Baker’s Daughter,” a 2012 Goodreads Choice Award finalist, says the message of optimism can be hard to hear in the midst of the daily sound bites nowadays. There is an opportunity for it to germinate in a person’s mind and heart between the reader and the page. It’s more than enough for me. For me, the first time I read ‘Anne of Green Gables,’ it was an emotional experience.

The novels had a profound impact on my development as a person. That’s why I think it’s been around for so long. In their own reading experiences, people are looking for it, and they’re passing it on to their friends, children, and grandchildren.” In the prequel novel, “Marilla of Green Gables,” Matthew and Marilla Cuthberts’ farm life is depicted before Anne’s arrival on the property. McCoy will attend the Adventures by the Book-sponsored Fall 2019 Literary Tea on October 19 at the Westgate Hotel.

Q: Why did you decide to write a prologue to the main story?

The project was a labor of love for me. When I was a small child, my mother read me “Anne of Green Gables” by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Since I can remember, I’ve been a Green Gables fanatic. My first memories are as vivid as those from this film. In fact, “Marilla of Green Gables” wasn’t even on my radar until 2016. A few publishers were interested in seeing what I had in mind for my next historical fiction. I met an exceptional editor at HarperCollins who challenged me to jot down three brief book proposals, each no longer than a couple of sentences in length. “Tell me about the novel that would make your heart sing to write,” were her precise words.

Anne’s Eyes Shot up in Surprise

When Marilla’s mother died, “Oh, Marilla… and what happened“: Why are you asking me this? Oh, Marilla, what happened?” I, like many other readers, was never able to shake the thought. That’s why I wrote this book. Anne of Green Gables’ legacy began there, and the narrative of how it came to be is told in detail here. So much fertile land is yet to be cultivated and reaped in the story. Marilla of Green Gables” is just the beginning, and I’m sure there’s much more to come.

Definitely, this novel is a tribute to the original series. However, I am not Montgomery. When it came to presenting a wide selection of high-quality and inspiring literature, she outdid herself. Sarah McCoy is the author of this book. I wrote with reverence for a fictional landscape that has allowed me to explore my creative side so much. For the sake of honoring that world and making its creator proud, I wrote. The heart of Marilla, a lady not unlike any of us today, is something I want people to grasp.

No one had ever opened up the doors like that for me in all my years of writing and publishing. For the first 100 pages, she didn’t inquire about how long I’d been journaling about a particular subject. When she asked whether I had any research documents or archive facts, she didn’t ask for a chapter-by-chapter description or a full book, as is customary in publishing. Let me see your visions.” That was all she said. This section of Marilla’s narrative is so fascinating to me that I have to relate it. The two of us have a lot in common. I’ll be eternally happy to have met a supporter of my work and a friend for life in you.

Marilla Cuthbert’s story was one of those “dream big” concepts. To this day, I’ve always been interested in Anne of Green Gables, Chapter 37: The Cryptic Un-Told. Marilla muttered, “Wow, what a handsome guy he is.” “When I saw him in church on Sunday, I thought he was enormously masculine. He bears a striking resemblance to his father when he was in a similar stage of development. He was an all-around good guy. He and I used to be really close friends. He was referred to as “my beau” by everyone.


On the borders of Avonlea, Prince Edward Island in 1896, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who have never married, decide to take in an orphaned child to help out around their ancestral property of Green Gables. A 13-year-old girl named Anne Shirley instead of the child Matthew went to pick her up at the train station. She is extremely outgoing and creative. The death of her parents at a young age left Anne an orphan. She worked as a servant for a number of different families until being sent to an orphanage.

Despite Matthew’s desire for her to stay, Marilla is wary of Anne because of her status as an unknown orphan and her view of a young girl’s utility. In the absence of a brooch, Marilla concludes that Anne is a thief, thus bolstering her suspicions. The Cuthberts “return” her to the orphanage by sending her away. When she finally goes to the orphanage, she is scared to go in because of the bullying she had experienced there, so she leaves and returns to the train station. Despite the fact that Marilla believes Anne is a criminal, she discovers the brooch was misplaced rather than stolen.

As a result, Matthew is able to track down Anne and persuade her to return to Green Gables, where she is welcomed as a family member. Diana’s parents and others in the community continue to target Anne for bullying and class-based prejudice at the Avonlea school. Anne is back, and she’s utilizing her coping methods of intelligence, problem-solving, and imagination to try to fit in with the rest of Avonlea.
