Following Anne of Green Gables (1908), the book covers the second chapter in the life of Anne Shirley. This book follows Anne from the age of 16 to 18, during the two years that she teaches at Avonlea school. It includes many of the characters from Anne of Green Gables, as well as new ones like Mr. Harrison, Miss Lavendar Lewis, Paul Irving, and the twins Dora and Davy.
A timeless classic!!! Takes of a girl’s transition into womanhood. Utterly captivating... This book is full of imagination and is a very morally educational read. I greatly recommend it to all those who need a dose of imagination and wholesome literature.
I really like this book. You definitely will want to read the first book before reading this one. I will say I like Anne of Green Gables a tiny bit more than Anne of Avonlea, but it is still really good. I really like how there are so many new characters introduced throughout the book. There are probably about as many new characters as there are old characters. It will still help to read Anne of Green Gables first.
What more can one say.
