A Graveyard of Buried Hopes

I'm sorry. I don't like {what I have seen of} the new series, "Anne With An E." I wanted to like it, but my little kindred heart wants to break when I think that someday, 30 years on from today, girls over the world will think that this new Anne Shirley Cuthbert! {yikes}, is the dear, wonderful, kindred Anne Shirley from Lucy Maud Montgomery's exquisite books. She is just not. 

Please kindreds, let's hold this Anne in our hearts, for as long as we can, and pass her onto the next generation so she is not lost. Otherwise, my life will be a perfect graveyard of buried hopes.


  1. I refused to watch any of it because the preview was so terrible. Doesn't keep to the spirit of the books at all. You just can't beat the original series; they had the look, the music, and the casting all down so well. Why redo something that's perfectly done already?

  2. Thank you for your comment, I missed it back in August. I am so glad I am not alone in feeling this way. It could have been so amazing ... if only!
