"Anne of the Island" by LM Montgomery

Anne of the Island may be downloaded for free from our ebook catalog.

Anne of the IslandThe third in Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables series, Anne of the Island was first published in 1915--six years after the publication of the second novel. Apparently Montgomery received an intense clamor for more books, dedicating this one to "all the girls all over the world who have 'wanted more' about Anne."

This novel picks up with Anne starting her freshman year at Redmond College in Kingsport. Apart from a few scenes back at home at Green Gables and one lovely interlude in Valley Road which chronicles the romance of an older couple, Redmond College is the center of Anne's activity.

If the prior two books lacked romance, this one makes up for it. Anne and two college friends share a quaint house in Kingsport, and there is a constant stream of "beaus" coming through the door. One of the friends, Phillippa Gordon, is an excellent addition to the book. She is vain, but knows it, and that somehow makes her utter superficiality less annoying. Even she has her share of romance, happening upon it--as seems the theme of this novel--where she least expects to find it.

For those who simply can't get enough information about Anne of Green Gables and her author, check out the LM Montgomery Research Group. While the website appears to still be a work in progress, there is a blog and a very extensive filmography section that talks about all of the LM Montgomery big screen adaptations.
