Publisher's Summary

Anne of the Island was published in 1915, seven years after the best-selling Anne of Green Gables, partly because of the continuing clamor for more Anne from her fans - a fan base that continues to grow today!
In this continuation of the story of Anne Shirley, Anne leaves Green Gables and her work as a teacher in Avonlea to pursue her original dream (which she gave up in Anne of Green Gables) of taking further education at Redmond College in Nova Scotia. Gilbert Blythe and Charlie Sloane enroll as well, as does Anne's friend from Queen's Academy, Priscilla Grant. During her first week of school, Anne befriends Philippa Gordon, a beautiful girl whose frivolous ways charm her. Philippa (Phil for short) also happens to be from Anne's birthplace of Bolingbroke, Nova Scotia. Anne, always the good scholar, studies hard, but she also has many life lessons. This book sees Anne leave behind girlhood to blossom into a mature young woman.

Nothing Special

I’m a bit ambivalent about this instalment. It was alright, I didn’t dislike it, but because I am determined to FINALLY read the entire series I felt like this was just a stepping stone and it did not really entertain me.

Ah well, win some lose some.

Great story not so much the narration

The Anne series is my one of my favorites, and this book is my favorite in the series. The reason I give this 4 stars is the narrator. I just didn't like her voice, the guy characters' voices didn't seem right. I don't know... maybe it's just me but I just didn't like Colleen Winton's voice. :/
