Anne Green Gables, My Daughter and Me ~ Lorilee Craker

This is a different type of book then I am used to reading, however, it is good.  Lorilee writes her memoir and compares it with her daughters story and the story of Anne Greene Gables.  I have not read or watched any of the Anne Greene Gables and was able to read this story without any problems.  It is a great book of how God works all for His good in our lives.  I enjoyed the chapter of how Lorilee talks about your best friend leaving your life and what an impact that makes.  As all of us have experienced this in our lives, I enjoyed her comment about how if they hadn't left your life, you would have missed out on all the other best friends you have been able to share you life with.  That was such an eye opener and really touches your heart.  This is just one of the experiences she touches you with and this book is filled with so many more.

I would recommend this book for those that have experienced adoption, is adopted, Anne Greene Gable fan, or just want to read a good story filled with lots of love, compassion and many life changing experiences.  I enjoyed this a lot and would share with my friends and family.
