Anne of 100 Candles

An article by Meghan O’Rourke, titled “Anne of 100 Candles,” appeared yesterday on the website for Slate Magazine. Here’s an extract:

Her temper and her gaffes provide fodder for those village members who dislike having a child of “uncertain parentage” around. Yet with time, Anne wins nearly everyone over, as her grace, curiosity, and haplessness catalyze the bloodless community. She enables adults to reconnect with the childish soul within.

Thanks to Carole Gerson, Michelle Levy, and Lisa Lightbourn-Lay for bringing this article to my attention.
