A kindred spirit in the Anne of Green Gables series is someone who understands Anne Shirley very well, well enough to know what she is thinking.

Kindred SpiritsEdit

Matthew CuthbertEdit

Matthew Cuthbert was the first of the kindred spirits. He rarely talked but Anne knew what he was thinking most of the time and he knew her just as well. He was extremely lovely to Anne and gave her love. The best part about him is that he never noticed that Anne grew up. To him, Anne stayed young. After he died, Anne still felt loyal to him. This was an extremely hard time in Anne‘s life but no matter what she never forgot him.

Diana BarryEdit

Diana Barry was the second one. She was Anne's best friend and swore an oath to be eternal friends with her. She is not kindred enough to know what Anne was thinking, but she understood Anne as a friend and they told secrets to each other. They have never quarreled in the whole series.

Gilbert BlytheEdit

Gilbert Blythe was the fifth one. After Anne apologized, he became her close friend and eventually married her.

Mr. HarrisonEdit
