Staff Reviews


Sarah McCoy is the New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling author of The Mapmaker's Children; The Baker's Daughter, a 2012 Goodreads Choice Award Best Historical Fiction nominee; and The Time It Snowed in Puerto Rico.  Her new book Marilla of Green Gables is the bold, heartfelt tale of life at Green Gables . . . before Anne.  This entertaining historical novel is perfect for book clubs.  Set in rural Prince Edward Island in the nineteenth century, the novel imagines the young life of spinster Marilla Cuthbert, and the choices she made in her life that lead to “unimaginable greatness.”

In Marilla of Green Gables, Sarah McCoy brings literary history to life with exquisite detail that immediately transports readers to Prince Edward Island and the Green Gables of their childhood. Watching Marilla navigate life after the sudden loss of her mother is anything but ordinary as she eschews tradition and braves life beyond Green Gables to find her own destiny in an ever-changing world. Fans of the original series and those entering this landscape for the first time will be captivated by the complicated family dynamics, timeless friendships, budding romance, and pivotal moments in history that shaped this iconic character.

“Many of us who grew up with Anne of Green Gables always wondered why neither Marilla or her brother, Matthew, married; we were also very curious as to what secret Marilla held in her heart regarding John Blythe. Now, Sarah McCoy answers these questions for us in her new book, Marilla of Green Gables. She begins the story when Marilla is only 13 and continues until just before Anne comes to Green Gables. This book is wonderfully and imaginatively written, a rendering that Lucy Maud Montgomery herself would approve of. McCoy brings Marilla to life and helps us understand how she became the woman she did. A must-read for all those who love Anne of Green Gables.”
