Publisher's Summary

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.

A Book for the Whole Family

What made the experience of listening to Anne of Avonlea the most enjoyable?

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.


Who was your favorite character and why?

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.


What does Shelly Frasier bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hearing the book read aloud made it much easier to understand and enjoy.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Sometimes the right teacher makes all the difference in the world.


Any additional comments?

I can easily see why this book has stood the test of time.

Narration drove me crazy

My daughter tends to listen to audiobooks over and over. This is a great story, but I found this narrator to be exceptionally irritating - especially her imitation of children's voices. I did find her narration in the subsequent book, Anne of the Island much better - maybe because there were fewer kids voices.
