Anne of Avonlea is the second installment of L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables series. In this book, we see Anne grow into her late teens while managing two young twins, taking on more responsibility at Green Gables, and experiencing her first year as a teacher. Though Anne maintains her childhood wonder, throughout this book we get to see her mature.
I was just as captivated by this book as I was by the first book of the series, but I am a bit sad that time moved so quickly; from Anne of Green Gables to Anne of Avonlea, Anne’s childhood sped by. Even with her newfound maturity, Anne is still the same lovable character with a bright imagination. Although I loved this novel, I don’t think it was a good as Anne of Green Gables; however, it was still worthy of five stars.
