Very dated, of course, but it is easy to see why this has been, for so long a time, a favorite of children. The author draws her characters in a manner that gives them life on the page and makes her little homilies and lessons on moral behavior entirely subtle and unassuming.

Anne marries Gilbert, and they move to a new town and new home - which she dubs her house of dreams. New neighbors introduced - the lighthouse keeper, an older woman telling gossip, and a friendly neighbor dealt a bad hand in life, but turns out well in the end. Anne's first child, born at the house of dreams, lives only a few hours. Her next is born hale and healthy. As the book closes, Gilbert's practice is expanding, and they're planning to move into a bigger house, away from the shore - and her neighbor, now happily married, will summer vacation in the house of dreams.

Audiobook performed by Justine Eyre

In book five of this much-beloved series, Anne begins her married life. I don’t want to say any more because I don’t want to include spoilers.

What I love about these books is Anne, herself. She’s so optimistic and friendly, with good common sense, a kind heart, and a generous spirit. She is no stranger to trouble and heartache, and this book definitely includes some heart-wrenching events, but she relies on her strength of character to see her through, and ultimately achieves happiness by recognizing her many blessings and being thankful for them. I love the young woman she has become.

Justine Eyre does a marvelous job voicing the audio book. There are many characters, and she is up to the task of giving each of them a unique voice and demeanor. Of course, Montgomery’s writing gets much of the credit, but Eyre really brings them to life. ( )

After a three-year engagement, Anne and Gilbert are finally married and move away from Avonlea to the small community where Gilbert will set up his practice. In their small but perfect house, Anne and Gilbert enjoy the first years of their marriage and encounter delightful few neighbours on their side of the harbour including Captain Jim who minds the lighthouse, Miss Cornelia who never has a good word to say about men, and Leslie whose life has been far too full of tragedy.

Definitely one of my favourites in this series. While the hopeless romantic in me can't help but wish the book was nothing but Anne and Gilbert, the brief glimpses we get into their married life are worth relishing. As for the collection of neighbours, their plots and exploits are as entertaining as one would expect from a character who came from Montgomery. ( )

Steadily making my way through the Anne of Green Gables books. Anne and Gilbert are married and living in their "House of Dreams". The book was good but I understand why people prefer the first four. Anne is still the same irrepressible person but I prefer her youthful innocence to her living the harder life of an adult. And I miss her Green Gables family. ( )

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.

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.
