In the first sequel to Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Montgomery's feisty red-headed heroine is now 16 and a school teacher in the small village of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island. Although older, she isn't necessarily wiser, and she hasn't outgrown her mischievous antics. She learns how complicated life can be when she takes two new orphans at Green Gables under her wings, meddles in someone else's love life, and learns about romance herself when she encounters the "odd behavior" of a very handsome man, Gilbert Blythe.More

A Book for the Whole Family
Seeing Anne grow up into a school teacher and her interactions with Davey and Paul made this into a very enjoyable book for me. I think Dora was the weakest character as I had no idea why she was even there most of the time, but this is still a very strong book.
Besides Anne herself, my favorite character was Paul Irving. He was obviously taught to prize his own capacity for creative imagination, which is a valuable lesson for anyone.
Hearing the book read aloud made it much easier to understand and enjoy.
Sometimes the right teacher makes all the difference in the world.
I can easily see why this book has stood the test of time.
Lovely story, well read by a kindred spirit
