The inimitable Anne Shirley makes her mark on Avonlea in this artfully packaged edition of the sequel to "Anne of Green Gables." Five years after Anne Shirley came to the town of Avonlea, she feels (a little) more grown up, but she's still the same skinny, red-headed orphan Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert took in. After putting her dream of attending Redmond College on hold so she can help Marilla with the farm, Anne doubts she has many adventures ahead of her. But even in plain old Avonlea, her life proves to be anything but ordinary. This sequel to "Anne of Green Gables "follows Anne's endeavors to become a successful teacher, help raise a pair of rambunctious twins, and improve her beloved hometown--with the help of her former enemy, Gilbert Blythe, who's giving her an awful lot of attention... This addition to the renowned Anne of Green Gables series makes a wonderful gift and keepsake.
L. M. MONTGOMERY, known as Maud, was born on Prince Edward Island, off the coast of Canada, in 1874. Maud's mother died when she was just a baby and so she had a rather unhappy childhood growing up in the care of her strict grandparents. She was just sixteen when she had her first poem published. As a young woman she worked as a teacher and although she didn't enjoy it much it gave her lots of time to write. Maud wrote hundred of short stories, poems and novels throughout her life but it was the hugely popular "Anne of Green Gables" and its sequels that made her famous. She died in 1942.
