This book continues the story that was started in "Anne of Green Gables" and was continued in "Anne of Avonlea". They describe Anne's years at Redmond College in Kingsport, Nova Scotia; and are full of L. M. Montgomery's best mixture of humour, seriousness, sorrow, gladness, and real meaningfulness- with lots of great incidents to enjoy! She begins by boarding with Priscilla Grant in a boarding house full of cushions, but after a year joins other girls in renting a gloriously romantic cottage called Pattys Place that ends up seemingly full of cats! The other girls include Philippa, a real character of a girl, who can't make up her mind which of two boys to marry! Little does she know then who she will end up happily married to - a very different kind of person! There are boys in Anne's life too - the boy who gets his sister to propose on his behalf - then Charlie Sloan who proposes and is amazed that Anne should refuse him! Then there is Gilbert - who loves her - who is told by Anne that she cannot love him - yet Anne doesn't seem to like it when other girls are interested in him! Later on there is Royal Gardner, who Anne goes out with for two years - will she marry him? Or someone else? But there is much more than that in the book. There is the tragedy of Ruby Gillis, who has consumption but won't admit it. There are the twins, Davy and Dora, at home in Avonlea, and Davy's humorous antics and comments. There is Anne's story "Averil's Atonement" that, to Anne's horror, becomes a baking powder advertisement! And there is much, much, more! So many great characters. So many great incidents. This is another book to enjoy!

I'm not kidding- this book and whole series in fact is great, and one of the best classics of all times. Anne Shirley is now giving up her post as teacher at Avonlea school and attending Redmond College, to puruse her real dreams and ambitions. She takes some of her pals with her, close enough is Priscilla Grant, who shares a mangey old boarding house with her, until Anne's old Queen's friend Stella and exciting new girl Phil come and join her. Stella's relation allows them to use a wonderful, elegant house called Patty's Place for rent, and soon, the girls are having the time of their lives! Anne is also proving popular with the boys too. Billie Andrews, Charlie Sloane and Gilbert Blythe all propose, and are all rejected, until Anne meets Roy Gardner - handsome, and her old description of an ideal man. Will he be her husband, or will she marry her old rival and school comrade Gilbert? Amazing and a must-read before you die book.

This continues from the first book in the series, "Anne of Green Gables", and is at least as absorbing as that first one. One delightful book leads on to the next, as the reader follows the life of Anne, growing up on Prince Edward Island, Canada, with its social connections to the folk in Nova Scotia.

Great story, too bad I don't know how it ends, since the last 4 chapters are missing in my book (Puffinc Classics Relaunch). Anyone who is a fan of Anne will love the story, but be sure to buy a different edition (my book probably is not the only one missing the end).

It arrived in time and in absolutely perfect condition, which is saying something because it's a really nice edition. I would recommend to anyone buying this to read the previous 2 books in the Anne series first though.
