Little Miss Sunshine

Little Miss Sunshine

“It has always seemed to me, ever since early childhood, amid all the commonplaces of life, I was very near to a kingdom of ideal beauty. Between it and me hung only a thin veil. I could never draw it quite aside, but sometimes a wind fluttered it and I caught a glimpse of the enchanting realms beyond-only a glimpse-but those glimpses have always made life worthwhile.”

― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

I’ve started this book, and so far I am rather intrigued by the main character, an orphaned 11 years old girl. She is quite a peculiar little thing. She is a dreamer, an optimistic person to the point of annoyance, sometimes a drama queen but never a bore for certain.

Her story begins when she gets adopted by accident by a brother and a sister, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who initially wanted a boy to help them with the chores on Green Gables, their Avonlea farmhouse on Prince Edward Island. She is described as red-haired, with a pale complexion and freckles. The colour of her hair in particular troubles her: “Red hair is my life long sorrow.” I can’t say I relate to that one bit, in my opinion, having natural red hair is a blessing. But hey, then again, we’re talking about a story from 1908 when beauty standards were quite different.

All in all, I am looking forward to see the evolution of this character as well as the rest of the story.
