Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
'Thanks be, I'm done with geometry, learning or teaching it,' said Anne Shirley, a trifle vindictively, as she thumped a somewhat battered volume of Euclid into a big chest of books, banged the lid in triumph, and sat down upon it, looking at Diana Wright across the Green Gables garret, with grey eyes that were like a morning sky. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 7 April 2004
By Tag
This book is so wonderful, I'm surprised I haven't worn holes through the pages of my copy, I've read it that much. Anne marries her beloved Gilbert and they settle down into a little fishing village, where she stays in a bubble of perfect happiness. She makes new friends, matronly Miss Cornelia, withdrawn, enigmatic Leslie, and the delightful, generous Captain Jim of the Lighthouse. But the sweet life she lives threatens to collapse as tragedy strikes, a tragedy that will move any reader to tears. Anne struggles on, through her grief, supported with tender sympathy by her husband and friends. Though it left an unmendable mark on her heart, "There was something in her smile that wasn't there before, and was never absent from it again," Anne discovers, once more, how to laugh.

Anne has now moved to her house of dreams with Gilbert and started her new life as Mrs Blythe.Though this story doesn't contain as many adventures as Anne of Green Gables,Avonlea,the Island,it is still a very enticing story with love,family,birth and death.I always think we can learn a lot through Anne as her story as everything we meet in life.

Anne and Gilbert are finally married (phew!) and Gilbert has accepted a post as doctor in Glen St. Mary. There are some pangs at leaving dearly beloved Avonlea, but Anne falls in love with the little house they are to live in -- her house of dreams, and starts to set down little roots in this new soil.
Her romantic soul finds much to thrive on in this new environment. There is the beautiful story of the house itself, there is wonderful old Captain Jim with a heart of gold and lots of stories to share, there is the wide open sea and there is the lovely but enigmatic next door neighbour, Leslie Ford. Then too, there is Gilbert.
And to smooth over the transition to housekeeping, there is Susan, who comes in to help Mrs. Dr. Dear and proceeds to mother her in rather a lovely fashion. Glen St. Mary is full of interesting people and we get to meet several of them, from Miss Cornelia who has an avowed hatred for men, to Marshall Eliott, who has refused to cut his beard for many years, due to political reasons.
But the heart of the story is closer to home.
Anne strikes up a strong friendship with Leslie and Captain Jim though at times the former baffles her. She is swept up into the drama of Leslie's life and past as an unforseen 'complication' arises in the form of a handsome author, Owen Ford. For the first time, Anne and Gilbert disagree.
Anne becomes a mother and also experiences tragedy for the first time in this book too, so it really is a passing from girlhood to womanhood. Through all this 'growing up', though it feels like she has lost it for a while, she somehow manages to regain her fundamental joy in liife, and to remain the same loveable Anne.

This is one of the Anne books you will not want to put down, I read it in two days and did not want it to end. You feel yourself being drawn into the joy and heartache in each chapter. A must for any fan.

People usually slate 'classics' as boring, but they're always full of charm you can never put them down. This book isn't an exception at all. Amazing. Even if you think old books are boring, still read it. Please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Restful and Inspiring. 16 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a delightful story. What a lovely and virtuous family. I shall read it manymany times-it was wholesome,
sensitive of individual feelings and a lovely portrayal of naturally beautiful surroundings. It is like a spring of pure fresh water to read in a world which is now full of distrust, godlessness and grasping.
