Five years after Anne Shirley came to the town of Avonlea, she feels (a little) more grown up, but she's still the same skinny, red-headed orphan Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert took in. After putting her dream of attending Redmond College on hold so she can help Marilla with the farm, Anne doubts she has many adventures ahead of her. But even in plain old Avonlea, her life proves to be anything but ordinary. This sequel to Anne of Green Gables follows Anne's endeavours to become a successful teacher, help raise a pair of rambunctious twins, and improve her beloved hometown-with the help of her former enemy, Gilbert Blythe, who's giving her an awful lot of attention... This addition to the renowned Anne of Green Gables series makes a wonderful gift and keepsake.
