    Love the title .

    I loved this book. I now can relate to Marilla and her brother as I have read all of Anne of Green Gables and now things fit in. It seemed you were starting in the middle and there was no beginning but it all fits now and makes a beautiful story. Well written.

    This backstory was a delight!

    I read all of the Anne books as a child and loved them. I was worried that this book wouldn't fit/blend with the L.M. Montgomery books but I was so happy that it did!

    Marilla of Green Gables

    Girls who like the Anne of Green Gables series of books will enjoy Marilla 's story. It relates the difficulties of life before Anne. Marilla's story of her family life when she was young explains her behavior towards Anne. There is also a lesson to be learned regarding life altering decisions

    Marilla of Green Gables

    I loved the book; didn't want to put it down. Always good to have a back story on some of the characters in the story. Even though it's fictional; very plausible events. Also enjoyed what I thought was historical truths in the political side lines. I did not take the time to confirm. I would recommend this book to all L M Montgomery readers and more

    Calling All Kindred Spirits

    How glad I am that someone decided that Marilla Cuthbert had a story that we Anne fans needed to read. Darling Marilla, it appears that another kindred spirit has been made in author Sarah McCoy and I am truly glad. It was nice to travel back to early 19th century Prince Edward Island and a newly built Green Gables that housed the Cuthbert clan. A 13 year old Marilla and 21 year old Mathew live with their parents, Hugh and Clara, hardworking Scottish Presbyterian people near the small village of Avonlea. We meet Marilla's Aunt Izzy from Upper Canada, a new best friend for Marilla in Rachel White(the future Rachel Lynde) and a beau in John Blythe( Gilbert's father). All of that was great and I loved how Sarah McCoy brings it all together. I felt there were glimmers of the stoic and reserved nature that Marilla does show upon Anne Shirley's arrival in Anne of Green Gables. Yes, I had quibbles. First, Matthew Cuthbert was not shy enough for me and I couldn't buy into the whole courting subplot with a great -aunt of Jane Andrews. Secondly, as interesting as it was to delve into the rebellions of 1837 and 1838 not to mention the Underground Railroad. Marilla Cuthbert: Political Activist was a hard pill to chew given how Montgomery wrote her in the original book series. Albeit that twist made it interesting. All in all, I think that this prequel is tastefully executed and well researched and I would still recommend it to my fellow kindred spirits. Goodreads Review 13/04/19
