I so enjoyed this book! I had forgotten how the Anne books made me feel, but all of that came flooding back. This book feels like a letter from an old friend. I believe LM Montgomery would proudly approve.

I have seen some strong negative reviews here, asserting that McCoy’s Marilla doesn’t match up with Montgomery’s. I disagree. People change with age, and life can harden them through heartbreaks and hardship. I think the gap between this book and Anne could have provided just enough time, loneliness, and unfulfilled dreams to change Marilla. McCoy lays the foundation well.

This book uses historical fiction and modern day fiction blended together to tell a beautiful story of two women who's lives connect through an unexpected doll's head found in the cellar of a home.

I don't want to give too much away but if you love historical fiction as well as stories with great characters and stories that are messy and imperfect like real life then this is a great read for you. It is not all tied up in a pretty perfect package. It is real people living with hard things and they don't always make the best decisions along the way but there is healing and reconciliation and resolution in surprising ways.… (more)
