The Lovereading4Kids comment

This excellent second sequel to Anne of Green Gables has the same direct tone and close attention to detail which makes everything Anne does feel so recognizable and familiar- even though the experiences are also very much of their time. Here, with her friends Priscilla and Gilbert, Anne leaves her home to go to study at Redmond College. Anne feels lonely and out of things coming from the country setting of her home but she soon gets into the swing of student life – including falling in love.

Synopsis

Anne of the Island by L M Montgomery

As her childhood friends get married and move away, Anne too leaves Prince Edward Island for college in Kingsport. Although Priscilla Grant and Gilbert Blythe are there, too, she feels lonely and out of place. But Anne soon makes new friends, one of whom is rich, handsome Roy Gardner, whose attentions to Anne make Gilbert very jealous.

About the Author

L M Montgomery

L.M. Montgomery achieved international fame in her lifetime, putting Prince Edward Island and Canada on the world literary map. A prolific writer, she published some 500 short stories and poems and twenty novels. Nineteen of the novels were set on Prince Edward Island, even though she lived in Ontario for the last thirty-one years of her life.

Today, Montgomery's novels, journals, letters, short stories, and poems are read and studied by general readers and scholars from around the world. Her writing appeals to people who love beauty and to those who struggle against oppression. In the Second World War, Polish soldiers were issued copies of Montgomery's novels to take to the front. A post-war Japan turned to Anne for lessons in optimism and imagination. A musical based on Montgomery's first best-seller, Anne of Green Gables, has drawn packed houses for over twenty-five years. Recent television movies and series based on her novels have had international success and have made Montgomery a household name once again.
