This book focuses on Anne's time at a house she is boarding at called Windy Poplars with a few widows while she teaches at a school for three years while Gilbert Blythe is in medical school. It is cut into three years' time and is a combination of her letters to her darling fiance' Gilbert and her actual adventures in dealing with the people there (mainly the Pringles). It is filled with various love stories and events that Anne has a hand in, because she can't resist trying to do right for people. It was a really fun book! If you ever watched the TV mini-series, Anne of Avonlea was mainly based off of this book (but it is hardly like it at the same time). Definitely fun!
