What to expect

Listeners will be thrilled to know that Anne Shirley does appear in these wonderful stories of Avonlea and Spencervale. In fact, page one starts off with Anne curled up on the window seat of Theodora Dix's sitting-room, where Anne spent a fortnight of her vacation.

However, most of the people who appear in this book are new to listeners of the Anne books. There are Ludovic and Theodora, Felix Moore and his grandfather, Little Joscelyn and Aunty Nan, Old Man Shaw's Blossom, and many others, all delightfully drawn with Lucy Montgomery's unique talent of insightful description.

All the charm of Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea can be found in this gently sentimental and humorous book.

Listen to a sample

“Moving in the gentle pace of another era, the characters—proud old ladies, young girls in love, sprightly old men, bashful swains—nevertheless have a dignity and solidity. An all-time sentimental favorite.”
