Chronicles of Avonlea is a collection of short stories by L. M. Montgomery, related to the Anne of Green Gables series. It features an abundance of stories relating to the fictional Canadian village of Avonlea, and was first published in 1912. Sometimes marketed as a book in the Anne Shirley series, Anne plays only a minor role in the book: out of the 12 stories in the collection, she stars in only one ("The Hurrying of Ludovic"), and has a small supporting role in another ("The Courting of Prissy Strong"). She is otherwise only briefly mentioned in passing in five other stories: "Each in His Own Tongue", '"Little Joscelyn"', "The Winning of Lucinda", '"Quarantine at Alexander Abraham's" and "The End of a Quarrel".

Chronicles of Avonlea
Delightful collections of short stories! Told in her familiar descriptive manner. Very enjoyable! Unique characters!
I found this book to be fun, filled with stories of old maids and prodigies, doing things that the people of their day would have found crazy. All in all, the Chronicles of Avonlea, is a five star book. Especially if you have read any of Montgomery's other books e.g. Anne of Green Gables
