    Anne Shirley is grown up, has married her beloved  Gilbert and now is the mother of six mischievous  children. These boys and girls discover a  special place all their own, but they never dream  of what will happen when the strangest family  moves into an old nearby mansion. The Meredith clan is  two boys and two girls, with minister father but  no mother -- and a runaway girl named Mary Vance.  Soon the Meredith kids join Anne's children in  their private hideout to carry out their plans to save  Mary from the orphanage, to help the lonely  minister find happiness, and to keep a pet rooster from  the soup pot. There's always an adventure brewing  in the sun-dappled world of Rainbow Valley.

    Rilla of Ingleside

    Rilla of Ingleside
    Anne's children were almost grown up, except for  pretty, high-spirited Rilla. No one could resist  her bright hazel eyes and dazzling smile. Rilla,  almost fifteen, can't think any further ahead than  going to her very first dance at the Four Winds  lighthouse and getting her first kiss from  handsome Kenneth Ford. But undreamed-of challenges  await the irrepressible Rilla when the world of  Ingleside becomes endangered by a far-off war. Her  brothers go off to fight, and Rilla brings home an  orphaned newborn in a soup tureen. She is swept into  a drama that tests her courage and leaves her changed forever.

    Chronicles of Avonlea

    Chronicles of Avonlea
    On Prince Edward Island, where Anne Shirley grew up in the sea-sprayed town of Avonlea, there was no shortage of wonderful stories.  There was the case of Ludovic Speed, who wouldn't propose to the woman he had courted for fifteen years until Anne devised a plan to "speed" him up . . . if it didn't backfire and break his heart.  But no one could blame mischievous Anne for the hilarious battle of the sexes that erupted when a man-hating woman and her cat got quarantined in the same house with a woman-hating bachelor and his dog. From sprawling Penhallow Grange, where a family waits nearly forever for two quarreling lovers to break their stubborn silence, to the tumbledown farm of Old Man Shaw, who awaits the retum of his beloved daughter, L. M. Montgomery has written twelve tales of secret hopes and hidden dreams, filled with enchantment and humor.
