“Anne of Avonlea”, by L.M. Montgomery, continues to tell the story of Anne Shirley, the restless red-haired girl that we met in Anne of Green Gables. This is a beautiful tale of coming of age where Anne has to face responsibilities as a school teacher and as an active inhabitant of Avonlea.

Yes, Anne is more grown-up, but she is still as romantic and dreamy as always, and she does keep making mistakes as well, but she always learns from them and uses them to help her mature. We get to meet other amazing characters as Anne discovers new neighbours and enters their life like a beautiful ray of sunshine (as she always does), and explore new places, helped by the beautiful descriptions of L.M. Montgomery. Additionally, we are able to glimpse how her relationship with Diana, her best-friend, and Gilberth – I think I can hear all the fangirls now!!! – develops slowly, but beautifully (SPOILER ALERT: The last chapter is really important!).
