      Anne of Avonlea is the second book of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s popular series of Anne books, about the irrepressible and high spirited Anne Shirley.

      Anne of Avonlea moves at a slightly slower pace than the first book, Anne of Green Gables, which took us through Anne’s childhood. Now Anne is a teacher in her late teens. It’s interesting to feel the


      difference in the time period - nowadays, we would not have 16 and 17 year olds teaching classes and having finished teaching school.

      The new characters which are introduced, Davy and Dora, are cute and fun. They add a lot to the storyline. And the rest of the characters remain true - consistent with the first book. So the ...


      • book itself would not be as enjoyable without having read the first book.

        Anne feels very much like a grownup - the way that she thinks about things and the way that she responds with honour and grace to most situations. But then the author has her do something nutty like climb through a window into someone’s house, or sell

        the wrong cow, and you see behaviour a bit more consistent with her age.

        The story flows, and you really feel like a part of Anne’s life…there’s a reason this series was and is so popular in Canada. It does feel slower paced than many of the current popular books, and the problems are not as dramatic, but it feels very real.
