Anne's own true love Gilbert was finally a doctor and they no longer needed to live apart. They married quite simply and began a life together in their own little dream house where Anne met new neighbors, made new friends, and solved new problems. But she was still the same Anne - spirited and full of surprises.

Probably my least favorite of the series thus far, but it was sad, yet happy, and interesting. Anne and Gilbert get married and move to the home they dreamed up. Gilbert is a Doctor and Anne wants to make a family. They befriend a few people where they live and some are quite unique and depressing characters. Very sad tales in this. As a woman who married her high school sweetheart and had children with him, I felt in many ways I could relate and in others I felt "that's so tragic". It was definitely no children's book (in fact I'd be so very confused if I had read this as a child as I had wanted to in the past). Captain Jim was awesome.

An enjoyable read about Anne and Gilbert getting married and settling in their House of Dreams. Anne again is instrumental in the life of her friend, Leslie. We meet some extraordinary people, such as Captain Jim who mans the lighthouse. He tells great stories of his life at sea and they are compiled into his Life Book. It seemed so intriguing I wanted to do a Google search for it and read it myself. ;-) I found it very amazing that Montgomery, in her day of writing, couldn't be open to write about pregnancy and babies ... and actually had the stork come to visit.

From School Library Journal
Grade 6 UpL. M. Montgomery fans will be delighted by Barbara Caruso's narration of the fifth volume in the series (Indy, 2001). It follows the red-headed heroine and her new husband, Dr. Gilbert Blythe, to the snug little cottage that is their first home at Four Winds Harbor on Prince Edward Island. There's laughter, heartache, and unexpected turnabouts with new friends such as lighthouse keeper Captain Jim, and neighbors, Cornelia and Leslie. There's sorrow after the death of the couple's first child, and happiness after their healthy son is born. The story is liberally peppered with sketches of other memorable islanders and views of family life around the turn of the 20th century. Caruso's spirited and versatile narration brings to life diverse character traits such as Anne's zest for life, Cornelia's crusty opinions, and Leslie's soft, sometimes fearful breathlessness. This story will be appreciated by anyone who likes their happy-ending stories wrapped in old fashioned values. A great choice for all school and public libraries.Barbara Wysocki, Cora J.

This 1917 volume is the latest of the publisher's inexpensive hardcover editions of Montgomery's adventures of Anne Shirley, which began with Anne of Green Gables.

Let me tell you any of the Anne of Green Gables series are great! I love Lucy Maude Montgomery books and also the movies. They are breathtaking.

This story is about Anne Shirley and a new adventure in her life. She came to Green Gables at the age of 9, an orphan, and in all those years there has never been a wedding at Green Gables. It is the same orchard that she and Gilbert Blythe also known as Gil will be married. Now her travels will take her to Four Winds Harbor, where she will begin her life as Mrs. Gilbert Blythe. Anne will be leaving Avonlea and this is a major turning point in her life.
Diana Barry, her best friend, will help her with her wedding along with Miss Lavendar, Paul Irving, Mrs. Rachel Lynde, and her foster mother, Marilla Cuthbert.
This book is a reprint of the 1917 version and don't let the date fool you into think this is not a great book. You really need to read any and all of the Anne books. They are amazing and you will love them!
