This edition of Anne of Avonlea includes a Foreword and Afterword by T.A. Barron
Avonlea is the prettiest little town on Prince Edward Island, which is the prettiest little island in all of Canada. Anne had come here as an orphan--a skinny redhead showing up on the steps of Green Gables with a shabby suitcase and a heart full of dreams.
Anne's dream of finding a home had come true. But now she is a young woman, with new dreams, She has a teaching job in the city, with a chance to become a published magazine writer.
And an even greater adventure awaits: Anne is about to begin her first romance--with a handsome Boston millionaire whose dreams are very different from hers....
Anne of Avonlea continues the story that began in Anne of Green gables. These beloved classics are among the most popular novels ever written; they have made their author, L.M. Montgomery, a legend in Canada and around the world.
At sixteen Anne is grown up. . . almost. Her gray eyes shine like evening stars, but her red hair is still as peppery as her temper. In the years since she arrived at Green Gables as a freckle-faced orphan, she has earned the love of the people of Avonlea and a reputation for getting into scrapes. But when Anne begins her job as the new schoolteacher, the real test of her character begins. Along with teaching the three Rs, she is learning how complicated life can be when she meddles in someone else's romance, finds two new orphans at Green Gables, and wonders about the strange behavior of the very handsome Gilbert Blythe. As Anne enters womanhood, her adventures touch the heart and the funny bone.
