Anne of Avonlea
L. M. Montgomery
The sequel to Anne of Green Gables, there are lots of new characters to get to know as well as many much loved ones to meet again in Anne of Avonlea.
Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover.
Anne Shirley is now sixteen and preparing to take up her new role as a teacher in the local school. She has her best friend Diana Barry by her side and Gilbert Blythe, her childhood enemy, who is now a trusted ally and a fellow teacher. As impulsive as ever, Anne launches into her new career with characteristic vigour.
At heart, Montgomery's ability to incorporate such complex themes into writing that is so accessible to younger readers makes her arguably the grandmother of the YA/adult crossover novel
