Anne Shirley has left Redmond College behind to begin a new job and a new chapter of her life away from Green Gables. Now she faces a new challenge: the Pringles. They're known as the royal family of Summerside - and they quickly let Anne know she is not the person they wanted to be principal of Summerside High School.
But as she settles into the cozy tower room at Windy Poplars, Anne finds she also has great allies: the widows Aunt Kate and Aunt Chatty and in their irrepressible housekeeper, Rebecca Dew, are on her side. As Anne learns Summerside's strangest secrets, winning the support of the prickly Pringles becomes only the first of her triumphs.

Thankful for this; character voices odd at times
I love this story. It is probably one of the less eventful Anne books, but I enjoy the slower pace, letters to Gilbert, and the fun relationships Anne develops with her new neighbors in Windy Poplars.
It's one of her simpler novels. There are a couple of plot lines worth following. Much is just everyday-type events, but it's a nice diversion.
The narrator reads very smoothly and accurately. However, some of the voices did not seem right to me. She uses a deep, husky voice for several characters, including Rebecca Dew and Katherine, and another single female character of 29 - these characters were too spunky for that slow, deep voice. The voice of Elizabeth was too timid. There was one character whose voice was so annoying (yes, it was in character, but still), I fast forwarded through two chapters, which I don't usually have to do. I was able to find a deal at a lower price, and at that lower price, I don't regret purchasing it. It may not get the repeat listens like the recordings, but I enjoyed the experience overall.
Look to see what other new LMM books are being released.
