Cordelia - Anne's imagination did indeed give her comfort in the years before Green Gables. Anne described two of her imaginary friends to Marilla in chapter 8. Katie Maurice lived in Mrs. Thomas' bookcase, and Anne dreamed of them going to a "wonderful place, all flowers and sunshine and fairies." When Anne moved in with the Hammond's, she discovered Violetta, an imaginary "echo girl" who Anne had "become so attached to." Memories of them were sacred to Anne and she remembered to "send them a kiss every day."
