The "Anne of Green Gables Boxed Set Volume Two" contains novels four, five, and six of the popular series about a redhaired, imaginative orphan. Author L.M. Montgomery set these three novels in Prince Edward Island, Canada, her home for much of her life.
In "Anne of Windy Populars", Anne, fresh from college, is newly engaged to lifelong friend and admirer Gilbert Blythe. Gilbert is off to three years of medical school. In the interim, Anne will take up duties as principal and teacher at a school in Summerside, Prince Edward Island. Anne will make new friends, navigate some small town rivalries, and perhaps change a few lives.
In "Anne's House of Dreams", she and Gllbert are finally wed, and set up housekeeping in the small village of Glen Saint Mary. There, she and Gilbert will get to know interesting new friends and neighbors, and experience the joys and sorrows of marriage and young parenthood.
In "Anne of Ingleside", an older Anne and Gilbert are raising their five children in their new home, "Ingleside." Much of this book is about the children, but Anne and Gilbert will work through the challenges of a mature marriage and a mid-life crisis.
"Anne of Green Gables Boxed Set Volume Two" is very highly recommended to parents looking for worthy reading material for their children, and to fans of Anne of any age. L.M. Montgomery's honest prose superbly captures her time, place, and characters, especially the irresistable Anne, in an enchanting Prince Edward Island setting.
I bought this book for my mom. She likes nice stories that don't have icky, nasty stuff in them. She also doesn't like heavy literature. So this series is great for my mom. It's not just for young girls!
There is a quiet loveliness about the Anne of Green Gables series that delights the heart, no matter what age you are. Adventure, laughter, tears, all presented in a family friendly reading, great for reading out loud to kids at school or at home.
