Anne is marrying Gilbert Blythe! While she's deliriously happy to finally be with her version of Prince Charming, she's devastated when she learns that they will be making their new home miles away from her beloved Avonlea. But Anne is always up for an adventure, especially when she has Gilbert by her side. The newlyweds settle right in to their house of dreams. Anne couldn't be more content-the house is darling and fits all of her lofty requirements: a bubbling brook running through the property, lots of lovely trees, and close proximity to a beautiful old lighthouse and the sea. In true Anne fashion she immediately makes new friends, including salty Captain Jim, beautiful but tragic Leslie Moore, and prim and proper Miss Cornelia Bryant. While Anne's days are filled with triumphs and tragedies, her imagination, spirit, and sense of humour guide her as she navigates this next chapter in her extraordinary life. This addition to the rewned Anne of Green Gables series makes a wonderful gift and keepsake.
Lucy Maud Montgomery (November 30, 1874-April 24, 1942) publicly known as L.M. Montgomery, was a Canadian author best known for a series of novels beginning with Anne of Green Gables, published in 1908. Anne of Green Gables was an immediate success. The central character, Anne, an orphaned girl, made Montgomery famous in her lifetime and gave her an international following. The first novel was followed by a series of sequels. Montgomery went on to publish twenty novels as well as 500 short stories and poems. Because many of the novels were set on Prince Edward Island, Canada and the Canadian province became literary landmarks. She was awarded Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1935.
