“Everything that’s worth having is some trouble…”
-L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea
Could truer words be spoken? The story might be fictional, but the words are true.
After the catastrophe of Dracula, I needed more mental fun fluff. I enjoyed the first book in this series, Anne of Green Gables, that I had already downloads several more books in the series when I found them for free. Anne of Avonlea is the second book in the series. It is a delightfully written as the first.
It’s an easy read. Some stuff is predictable, other stuff leaves you wondering what is going to happen next. It’s interesting to see Anne growing up, still getting into some mischief, but also witnessing Davy getting into his own. She understands but doesn’t. Her eyes are slowly opening to adulthood, but she is still a child, whimiscal and fun. You see love developing through Anne’s eyes, though her mind isn’t consciously aware of romance for herself yet.
I love this book. I kept this on my iPad mini to reread when the mood strikes. It’s fun, lighthearted, entertaining. I hope my children discover this series while they are young instead of in their 30s such as myself. This is on my favorites shelf permanently.
