Season 8, Episode 4
Marilla Cuthbert isn’t the most likable character in the “Anne of Green Gables” books. Readers may have wondered what made her such a cold and disapproving person.
In her novel, “Marilla Before Anne”, Louise Michalos answers that question by introducing us to a teenaged Marilla – a high-spirited, passionate young woman in early 19th century Prince Edward Island – and tells Costas Halavrezos how she perseveres through a gauntlet of misfortunes with her dignity intact.
You’ll also learn how Louise tackled writing as a second career after retirement.
