REVIEW – Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery

“We mustn’t let next week rob us of this week’s joy.”

Ah, how lovely it is to be back in Avonlea. Anne is preparing for college and although the majority of the story takes place at Redmond, the magic and coziness isn’t lost.

I felt that the strongest part of this book was the exploration of Anne’s friendships, both new and old. Phil is hilarious, Prissy is a delight, and although dear Diana isn’t in much of the book, that friendship endures.

“I’m afraid to speak or move for fear all this wonderful beauty will vanish just like a broken silence.”

I’m sad to think that we won’t be returning to Patty’s Place in the future, but our brief time there was so lovely.

Also, is there anyone who DOESN’T absolutely love Gilbert Blythe?

I loved that this story covered approximately four years of Anne’s life, and I’m excited to see where the next books lead.
