  • Anne Shirley, qui a désormais 18 ans, poursuit ses rêves d'études supérieures et d'envolées créatives. Et c'est en compagnie de Gilbert Blythe, Charlie Sloane et Priscilla Grant qu'elle découvre Redmond, l'Université de Kingsport en Nouvelle-Écosse. Au programme : cours, écriture, nouvelles rencontres et surtout, toutes sortes de mésaventures ô combien romantiques. Sans oublier les retours à Green Gables pour se ressourcer, entretenir les vieilles amitiés, garder sur le droit chemin un turbulent petit garçon... et recevoir sa première demande en mariage! Avec toujours autant de style et d'humour, Lucy Maud Montgomery signe de son écriture merveilleuse un charmant trésor littéraire à la fois poétique et tendre sur les joies et les peines du passage à l'âge adulte d'une fascinante jeune fille.

  • Vendu à 60 millions d'exemplaires à travers le monde, adapté des dizaines de fois (récemment sur Netflix), aimé par des générations de lecteurs, Anne de Green Gables de Lucy Maud Montgomery est un hymne à la joie et au pouvoir de l'imagination. Magnifiquement écrit, construit autour d'une héroïne parfaitement imparfaite, féministe involontaire et romantique impénitente, ce roman empreint de poésie et d'humour est bien plus que la vie d'une orpheline qui va bousculer le calme de son nouveau foyer. C'est un autre monde, fait d'une nature enchanteresse et d'idées saugrenues qui se déploie à travers les yeux de l'incroyable Anne. Littérature solaire et intemporelle, ce roman unique est une parenthèse magique, un souffle chargé d'énergie, un élan à vivre pleinement nos amitiés et nos passions.

  • Anne, petite orpheline malmenée par l'existence, est envoyée par erreur chez Marilla et Matthew Cuthbert, un frère et une soeur d'âge mûr qui exploitent une ferme sur l'Île-du-Prince-Édouard pour y être adoptée. Alors que ceux-ci avaient l'intention d'adopter un solide garçon pour les aider dans les travaux agricoles, ils voient débarquer sur un quai de gare une frêle fillette sensible, imaginative et volubile. Leur premier mouvement est de renvoyer immédiatement la petite fille à l'orphelinat. Gagnés par le charme et l'intelligence d'Anne, ils se ravisent cependant et décident de la garder auprès d'eux. Bien leur en prend : la fantaisie et l'impétuosité d'Anne vont bouleverser le cours de leur morne existence et transformer leur vie.

    Lucie Maud Montgomery brosse ici le portrait singulier d'une petite fille au caractère bien trempé, qui affirme haut et fort son désir d'exister et d'être heureuse malgré les aléas de son existence. Anne, la maison aux pignons verts est un grand classique de la littérature canadienne. Il fut notamment adapté à la télévision sous le titre Anne, le bonheur au bout du chemin (1985) et plus récemment par Netflix sous le nom Anne with an E. Écrit par l'auteure canadienne Lucy Maud Montgomery, dont l'enfance a inspiré l'histoire d'Anne, le roman rencontre dès sa sortie en 1908 un immense succès.

    Vendu à plus de 60 millions d'exemplaires, il n'a cessé d'être réédité et adapté depuis. La France est étonnamment restée en marge de cet engouement mondial : peu nombreux encore sont ceux qui connaissant la saga de Lucy Maud Montgomery autrement que par le petit écran. La nouvelle traduction de Laure Valentin est l'occasion de découvrir ce grand roman sur le pouvoir de l'imagination, l'acceptation de sa différence et la liberté. Exempt de toute mièvrerie, souvent drôle, il plaira aux plus jeunes comme à leurs parents.
