About the Author

One of the best-loved children's/young adult authors, Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on November 30, 1874 in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, Canada, the daughter of Hugh John and Clara Woolner. After attending Prince of Wales College and Dalhouse College in Halifax, she became a certified teacher, show more eventually teaching in Bideford, Prince Edward Island. She also served as an assistant at the post office and as a writer for the local newspaper, The Halifax Daily Echo. Best known for her Anne of Avonlea and Anne of Green Gables books, Montgomery received many high honors. She was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 1923 and a Canadian stamp commemorates Montgomery and Anne of Green Gables. In addition, various museums dedicated to the book series and Montgomery's life dot Prince Edward Island. The books in the Anne series follow the growth and adventures of a red-haired, spritely, high-spirited and imaginative orphan named Anne who lives on Prince Edward Island. The success of these books rested in Montgomery's ability to vividly recollect childhood and her easy storytelling ability. They are tremendously popular to this day and have been translated into more than 35 languages and adapted as movies and PBS television productions. On July 5, 1911, L.M. Montgomery married Ewan Macdonald, a Presbyterian minister, and the marriage produced three children. She died on April 24, 1942. (Bowker Author Biography) show less

I love the stories in this book! They kind of felt like an added bonus.
The only reason this is not 5 stars, is it doesn't contain Anne at all, except for a few remarks and it was a bit confusing jumping from one story to the next. Each chapter is a different story with different people. It doesn't give you time to really get to know the people.
Nevertheless, the stories were great and entertaining.

"Anne of the Island" is the third novel in the "Anne of Green Gables" Series in which she attends Redmond College in Kingsport to study for her BA. Anne is kept up to speed with the goings on in Avonlea via insightful letters and visits home. Her friendship with Gilbert, who has also enrolled at Redmond, blossoms in their new surroundings, but can Anne see it for what it truly is?
