From the Publisher

Anne is the mother of five, with never a dull moment in her lively home. And now with a new baby on the way and insufferable Aunt Mary Maria visiting -- and wearing out her welcome -- Anne's life is full to bursting.

Still Mrs. Doctor can't think of any place she'd rather be than her own beloved Ingleside. Until the day she begins to worry that her adored Gilbert doesn't love her anymore. How could that be? She may be a little older, but she's still the same irrepressible, irreplaceable redhead -- the wonderful Anne of Green Gables, all grown up. . . She's ready to make her cherished husband fall in love with her all over again!

When I was finally able to pick up a copy of this book, I was quite excited to read more of Anne's continuing adventures. Up to this point, I had found myself enthralled by all of Anne's adventuring. But when I finally managed to finish this book, it really was a disappointing moment. The book revolves, mostly, around the adventures of Anne's children, none of which were in the least bit interesting. Her children's stories all follow one main plotline. 1: I'm going to be naughty even though mother and everyone says I should be good. 2: Oh, it really was horrible wanting to be naughty, because it all turned out badly in the end. 3: Mother's holding me and everything's all better again. About half way through the book, I really began to wonder how two such interesting characters as Anne and Gilbert could have possibly had not 1, but 6 dull, rather stupid, flighty children. Even their imaginings, which, in Anne seemed so interesting, were all terribly lackluster and idiotic in her children. There was absolutely no character development of Anne or Gilbert, which, I rather felt there should have been, considering the book takes place over quite a number of years. Anne is nothing more than window dressing, brought in and out of the scenes in the most haphazard fashion. Gilbert spends the entire book going from work to more work, and yet another spat of work, before starting it all over again. Everything that I enjoyed so much about their earlier romance was gone completely, and the end, to which the back of the book aludes is flat at best. Anne does nothing to 'win' Gilbert's love all over again. It's practically all of one chapter.Read more ›

I really liked this book. I enjoyed reading about Anne as a grown woman with children. Her children are really just like her. Their imaginations carry them on some very enjoyable adventures. I think that if you enjoyed the first few books in this series, you'd definately like this one too. To anyone who hasn't read the series yet, start them now. They are all very good books.

I'm surprised at how many Anne fans are disappointed in Anne of Ingleside. Of course, Anne can't be the same 13-year-old girl we first met, but I'm still rooting for her all the way. Some say Anne has her "ideal life," but near the end of this novel, Anne does stumble upon some insecurity, which I found absolutely devastating. I have laughed and cried with Anne throughout this series, and this installment is no exception. Now, we get to meet Anne's children, who have trials of their own. Not a bit boring to me. I would still recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the younger Annes.

"Anne of Ingleside" is the sixth book in Lucy Maud Montgomery's superb "Anne of Green Gables" series. Anne and Gilbert have been married nine years and live in the large house they call Ingleside. Gilbert has a thriving medical practice in Glen St. Mary; he and Anne have five young children, with a sixth on the way. They have also the unique maid of all work Susan Baker.

The story centers around a lively series of domestic crises, large and small, delivered with humor and gentle wisdom. Some are typical childhood events, such as the death of a treasured pet or the consequences of a lie. Some affect everyone, such as the prolonged stay of Gilbert's ill-tempered Aunt Mary Maria, whose pessimistic posturing threatens to unhinge the whole family. Some are quite frightening, such as Anne's very serious bout with pneumonia.

A visit by old college classmate Christine Stuart will trigger a surprising crisis of confidence for Anne in her marriage. Her fears are stoked by Gilbert's air of preoccupation and Anne's recollections of Christine Stuart as a rival for Gilbert's affections. Anne's imagination will lead her down a dark path to a fateful conversation with her husband.

Anne of Ingleside" is rich in the details of a maturing marriage. It is also an introduction to the little Blythe's, each healthy, imaginative, and unique, of whom we will see more in "Rainbow Valley." It is highly recommended as a very good read to "Anne" fans of all ages.

“Juvenile Imagination vs the Secret Wisdom of Mothers”

This 6th book in the beloved ANNE OF GREEN GABLES series, set on Prince Edward Island, starts when Anne is about to give birth to Rilla (named after aging Marilla Cuthbert of Green Gables) and concludes several years later. Time has a blissfully liquid way of ebbing and flowing—which may confuse and even exasperate some chronologically- strict readers. For those of us who have faithfully followed Anne’s romanticized and harrowing adventures over the years we yearn for more of her story—which has charmed generations of girls who would like to visit PEI for themselves, to savor the essence of red-haired Anne. Indeed there’s nothing like the Island Cure for mainland Canadians feeling blue.

Most of the book details the childhood woes and challenges of the small fry: Jem, Walter, twins Nan and Diana, toddler Shirley (a boy) and finally lisping Rilla. ANNE opens with her nostalgic return to Green Gables, with all its treasured places with her girlfriend, dearest Diana.
LMM describes a variety of kid pranks and cruelty to each other, strangers, friends, and even siblings. Little Di learns to her sorrow not to be manipulated by elaborate lies, and the exaggerations of two silver-tongued girls. Anne appears as the almost too–perfect mother, until she frets without cause over deep-rooted latent jealousy. Over the years she deals with a cantankerous, meddling old relative who will not leave; she also seems to be cured at long last of her penchant for matchmaking. When the ladies of the Sewing Guild get together to make quilts, well--the list of gossipy items rattled off fills an entire, plot-less chapter!
