I don't believe Anne is meant to be realistic as read by an adult perspective or with a modern understanding of abuse/mental trauma/PTSD/etc. She's meant to be idealistic yet relatable and an aspirational role model for young children. She's a heroine, yet she's not sinless or flawless. She has her trials to overcome as she matures to be a young adult, but she's optimistic and resilient. The cozy, heart-warming aspect is why it has endured over 100 years, countless adaptations have been made, and those who read it in childhood can re-read it as an adult with the same happy feelings and nostalgia.
