Product Description


As her childhood friends get married and move away, Anne leaves Prince Edward Island for Redmond College in Kingsport. Although Priscilla Grant and Gilbert Blythe are fellow-students, she's still lonely. But she soon makes new friends wherever she goes, including rich, handsome Roy Gardner, whose attentions to Anne make Gilbert very jealous.


Anne Shirley leaves Avonlea to study to become a teacher at Redmond College, and when she returns for her first summer, she finds life in Green Gables subtly changed.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Anne of the Island" is the third of Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables novels, and completes what we can see as being a trilogy simply becomes Anne finally realizes what everybody has known from early in the first book, which is that Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe are made for each other. Having spent time as the teacher at the Avonlea Schools in "Anne of Avonlea," the Anne girl leaves Prince Edward Island for four years of college. The theme of this story is Anne dealing with "How horrible it is that people have to grow up," as she confronts how her whole world is changing.
Ironically, what makes "Anne of the Island" so romantic is the way it challenges romanticism. Even as a young woman Anne creates a romantic fantasy around the world in which she lives, just like she did at Green Gables where there was the old Snow Queen at the window, the Dryad's Bubble, the Haunted Wood, Lover's Lane and all those "dear spots where memories of the old years bided." Now Anne and Priscilla, her school chum from Redmond, are renting rooms in Patty's Place, and making the home of Miss Patty and Miss Maria into their own. Meanwhile, after a thousand romantic drams and enduring both Diana Barry's wedding and the rejection of Gilbert Blythe's proposal (her second actually), Anne finally meets her Prince Charming, Royal Gardner.
He is handsome and rich, in short, everything that Anne ever dreamed that she wanted in a husband. Then comes the fateful moment when Roy proposes and Anne opens her lips to say her faithful yes. But this is but a false dawn in Anne's life and there is a fateful Book of Revelation that Anne has to endure before love takes up the glass of time. There is romanticism and then there is that which is romantic and Montgomery shows the difference.

This has to be my favourite book. After reading all of the Anne series from when she was a girl, then a young woman, then herself as a mother, I feel as if I know all of the characters. The characters are very well described and intresting. When I first read this book I picked it up as i went to bed and didn't put it down until 1:30 in the morning because I had to finish it! Although this is a children's book it is a great read for anyone. There are very few books of our childhood that we can reread with such pleasure; this is one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ideal, or Gilbert? 22 Mar. 2004
By A Customer
Anne of the Island is a superb book, and one of the best installments of Anne's story. This, the third book in the series of eight, sees Anne head off for college with Gilbert, Charlie Sloane and other Avonlea chums, along with certain friends from Queen's Academy. Once there, Anne embarks on four years of study and romance, with Gilbert finally confessing his long-concealed feelings for Anne. But will she finally choose Gilbert, the best friend everyone seems to think she was made for, or will Anne choose Roy Gardener, her tall, dark and handsome poetry-writing ideal man?

5.0 out of 5 stars anne is deciding whether she is ready for love 2 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
All I have to say is WOW!This book is more heart warming than Anne of Greem Gables,funnier than Anne of Avonlea,and the most romantic of the Anne series.You should buy this book.I only bought this book two days ago and it is now worn out from being read too many times.This book will hold a special place in my heart and book collection. At first i hated all love mush stories but this is an example that people can change.Personally this is my favorite of the Anne series.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is my personal favourite of all the Anne books. I usually see the first three in the series as a trilogy, because they're the best of the 8 books, with the exception of "Anne's House of Dreams." I was impressed with this book because it managed to go beyond just Avonlea and Green Gables. It put Anne in a new setting and showed how she managed there, with new friends and a home away from home. I admit that one of the best things about this book is the not-quite romance between Gilbert and Anne. Any readers who have been dying to see their romance fulfilled finally get a bit of what they're looking for. However, Montgomery manages to bring in the romance while retaining Anne's free spirit. This diminished in the later books, only to be reincarnated at the end in "Rilla of Ingleside." I recommend this book to anyone who loves a romance, but also loves creative characters like Anne.

Since i read Anne of Green Gables.I thought Anne and Gilbert is a perfect match.But ,still,in Anne of Avonlea,there is nothing about love.Fortunately,Anne of the Island turned out to be a romamtic,lovely story.It is just as enticing as the first two books of the series.I like the entry of Royal Gardner and Christine.And I like all the new characters in this book like Phil.They simply make the story more endearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars My perfect book 1 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In my opinion L M Montgomery is a Jane Austen She has every day characters described perfectly and every day actions and their consequences followed through to the end I still think all these Anne books are the best ever.
