I didn't quite like this book initially as I found the language more flowery than previous books in the series. However, the story and the characters won me over. The new characters like Leslie Moore, Cornelia Bryant, and Captain Jim are not as contrived as some of those in the previous series. Cornelia is super funny, Captain Jim is so wise and Leslie's life is so tragic. Montgomery also included such wicked twists like the identity of Dick Moore and Cornelia's marriage. So I found myself enjoying this book tremendously. I give it a 4.5 rating. ( )

While "Anne of Windy Willows" is my least favourite book in the Anne series, this is one of my favourites. It is poignant, darker and has more depth in it than some of the earlier books. I shed tears with Anne when she lost her baby.

Although Marilla and Diana are missing, Miss Cornelia, Captain Jim, Susan and Leslie are strong, interesting characters, especially Leslie. Her story is so sad, but I am glad it ends well for her. I also have a real soft spot for Captain Jim. He is such a gentle, wise sole, and I hope he is reunited with his Lost Margaret.

My one complaint about "Anne's House of Dreams" is that I did find some of the stories and dialogues rather long and, at times, preachy, especially from Miss Cornelia and Captain Jim. However, I loved the strong female friendships and Anne's growth. Through trials and triumphs, she is finally a mature woman. ( )

Not my favorite, but still enjoyable. Why do I feel like Anne as a character went downhill after she married Gilbert? ( )

It Is no surprise, but the later "Anne" books fail to live up to the first two. ( )

Anne is all grown up and her dreams are coming true. The same flowery and magical writing with more of a grown up storyline. ( )

First words
"Thanks be, I'm done with geometry, learning or teaching it," said Anne Shirley, a trifle vindictively, as she thumped a somewhat battered volume of Euclid into a big chest of books, banged the lid in triumph, and sat down upon it, looking at Diana Wright across the Green Gables garret, with gray eyes that were like a morning sky.
But it ain't our feelings we have to steer by through life—no, no, we'd make shipwreck mighty often if we did that. There's only the one safe compass and we've got to set our course by that—what it's right to do.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553213180, Mass Market Paperback)

Anne's own true love, Gilbert Blythe, is finally a doctor, and in the sunshine of the old orchard, among their dearest friends, they are about to speak their vows. Soon the happy couple will be bound for a new life together and their own dream house, on the misty purple shores of Four Winds Harbor.

A new life means fresh problems to solve, fresh surprises. Anne and Gilbert will make new friends and meet their neighbors: Captain Jim, the lighthouse attendant, with his sad stories of the sea; Miss Cornelia Bryant, the lady who speaks from the heart -- and speaks her mind; and the tragically beautiful Leslie Moore, into whose dark life Anne shines a brilliant light.
