In Anne of Green Gables, delightful, unpredictable Anne Shirley captured the hearts of girls around the world. Now this charming heroine returns in the further adventures of Anne of Avonlea. Avonlea is the prettiest little town on Prince Edward Island, which is the prettiest island in all of Canada. Years ago, Anne came here as an orphan—a mischievous, talkative redhead with a shabby suitcase and a heart full of dreams. Now, however, Anne is a young woman with new dreams. She has a job as the town’s schoolteacher, and as the school year passes, wonderful adventures await: reuniting two long-lost lovers, raising two orphans who tumble into her life, and discovering the first flickering of love for a dear old friend. Today L.M. Montgomery’s tales of Anne Shirley are beloved classics, with generations of fans everywhere.
