This is the sixth book in the series that follows the irrepressible Anne Shirley as she grows from a young orphan to adulthood. NOTE: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t read this far in the series

This book focuses on Anne and Gilbert’s six children, who seem to all share their mother’s gift of imagination and tendency toward fantasy. The chapters focus on different children and their adventures / flights of fancy. Their dear mother, Anne, as well as housekeeper Susan hold the book together.

However, I really missed Anne in most of the book. Yes, it was fun to watch one child after another learn from his/her mistakes or be scared of shadows or foolishly believe a tall tale or relish a summer day playing in the valley and letting their imaginations soar. But, I read the earlier books in the series for Anne, and she wasn’t as prevalent in this episode. I’m not sure I’ll continue reading the series at all. ( )

I was disappointed with this book. Ten years have passed since the previous book and Anne is now the mother of six children! Sadly, she was hardly in the story. Instead, the chapters focused on the various Blythe children and read more like a collection of short stories rather than a cohesive novel. However, with only two more books to go in the series, I will continue following Anne's journey. ( )

Anne is the mother of five, with never a dull moment in her lively home. And now with a new baby on the way and insufferable Aunt Mary Maria visiting -- and wearing out her welcome -- Anne's life is full to bursting.
Still Mrs. Doctor can't think of any place she'd rather be than her own beloved Ingleside. Until the day she begins to worry that her adored Gilbert doesn't love her anymore. How could that be? She may be a little older, but she's still the same irrepressible, irreplaceable redhead -- the wonderful Anne of Green Gables, all grown up. . . She's ready to make her cherished husband fall in love with her all over again! ( )

Another Anne book filled with stories of the dream-filled girl, now grown up into a very understanding mother of six lively, dream-filled children. In this book, many of the Blythe children (all but Shirley) get one or two stories of their own, capturing their lives and personalities wonderfully. Anne plays a smaller and smaller part of the Anne books, though she is ever present throughout the stories in one way or another. This book is homey - it conjures a feeling of snuggling down with a blanket in front of a warm fire, no matter where the reader happens to be reading it. No sex, violence, or profanity. I would recommend this book to elementary school students. ( )

Last in the Anne series with Anne as the heroine. Anne has been married to Gilbert for 15 years, and is the mother of 5 rambunctious children. The story continues to follow her family, Susan who has lived with the family for years, and the townspeople's adventures, while introducing the children who are featured in the next books. ( )

"How white the moonlight is tonight!" said Anne Blythe to herself, as she went up the walk of the Wright garden to Diana Wright's front door, where little cherry-blossom petals were coming down on the salty, breeze-stirred air.
