Anne of Avonlea by L. M. Montgomery, Fiction, Classics, Family, Girls & Women

If you came down to harsh facts -- which, it must be confessed, Anne of Avonlea seldom did until she had to -- it did not seem likely that there was much promising material for celebrities in Avonlea school; but you could never tell what might happen if a teacher used her influence for good. Anne had certain rose-tinted ideals of what a teacher might accomplish if she only went the right way about it; and she was in the midst of a delightful scene, forty years hence, with a famous personage . . . just exactly what he was to be famous for was left in convenient haziness, but Anne thought it would be rather nice to have him a college president or a Canadian premier . . . bowing low over her wrinkled hand and assuring her that it was she who had first kindled his ambition and that all his success in life was due to the lessons she had instilled so long ago in Avonlea school.
Portrait
L.M. Montgomery (1874 - 1942), was the pen name of Lucy Maud Montgomery, a Canadian author best known for a series of novels beginning in 1908 with Anne of Green Gables. The book was an immediate success. The central character, Anne Shirley, an orphaned girl, made Montgomery famous in her lifetime and gave her an international following. The first novel was followed by a series of sequels with Anne as the central character. Montgomery went on to publish 20 novels as well as 530 short stories, 500 poems and 30 essays. Most of the novels were set in Prince Edward Island and locations within Canada's smallest province became a literary landmark and popular tourist site-namely Green Gables farm, the genesis of Prince Edward Island National Park. She was made an officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1935.

"Anne of Avonlea" picks up right where "Anne of Green Gables" left off and is just as entertaining as its predecessor. This book spans two years and follows Anne from age 16 to 18. In that time she starts teaching at her old school, makes new acquaintances and kind of becomes a big sister. How come? Marilla decides to adopt a pair of six-year-old twins. One of the two, Davy, is a lively and extremely curious young lad. With him, life definitiely isn't about to get boring in the forseeable future. "Anne of Avonlea" is just as jolly as the series' first installment and I had a good time reading it. I loved seeing how Anne keeps evolving into an independent and determined young woman, and it's highly amusing (and at the same time heart-warming) to see her interacting with her students and adoptive brother. Davy is probably my favourite amongst the new characters - his childlike innocence, curiosity and knack for getting into trouble made me laugh out loud quite a few times. Since I am a romantic at heart I would have wished for more scenes including Anne and Gilbert. Even though he hasn't played a major role just yet, I am already a big fan of his character. All in all, "Anne of Avonlea" is an amazing continuation of "Anne of Green Gables" and leaves you wanting for more, still. If you, like me, can't get enough of this series, you can continue reading with "Anne of the Island".
