As the story opens, Gilbert and Anne, just returned from Europe, reassemble their family at Ingliside. Mrs. Marshall Elliot delivers the latest gossip to Anne, including the news that the preacher's manse is newly occupied by absent-minded widower Reverend John Meredith, his four children, and an aging housekeeper.
In the wooded play space the children call Rainbow Valley, the Blythes and Merediths are quick to bond and as quick to get involved in escapades together. The four Meredith children, who are raising themselves, are forever offending local sensibilities; the Blythes will try to help.
"Rainbow Valley" is a change of pace in the "Anne" series, as Anne and Gilbert step into the background to allow Montgomery to work her considerable narrative magic with the Blythe and Meredith children. It is wonderful to meet Anne's children at long last, and there is no doubt that Montgomery was setting the stage for her final novel in the series, set during the First World War. However, the principal drama of this novel will be the effort by many hands to remarry Reverend Meredith to a suitable woman who can mother his children. In the end, the meekest Meredith child will make the quietly heroic sacrifice that saves the day.
"Rainbow Valley" is highly entertaining and highly recommended to "Anne" fans.
