Despite this book being the one where Anne and Gilbert finally get engaged, it's also the one that convinced me Anne was aro-spec. Her experiences with disillusionment throughout this book felt so familiar to me that I can't read her as anything but on the aromantic spectrum. Anne's revelation of love feels more like a revelation that she doesn't want to live without Gilbert in her life and traditional romantic love/marriage is the only way it's going to happen, so that's how she reacts.

A country girl goes to college.

2.5/4 (Okay).

It's pretty good when it focuses on the plot. It rarely does, though. And there's a new character, Phil, that I like enough that I'm almost tempted to keep reading the series. Almost. Being somewhat bored for three books is enough Montgomery for me, at least for a long while. ( )

Anne of the Island is the third book in the Anne of Green Gables series, written by Lucy Maud Montgomery about Anne Shirley. In the continuing story of Anne Shirley, Anne attends Redmond College in Kingsport, where she is studying for her BA. Not quite as much fun as the first two in the series ( )

All precious things discovered late
To those that seek them issue forth,
For Love in sequel works with Fate,
And draws the veil from hidden worth.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553213172, Mass Market Paperback)

New adventures lie ahead as Anne Shirley packs  her bags, waves good-bye to childhood, and heads for  Redmond College. With old friend Prissy Grant  waiting in the bustling city of Kingsport and  frivolous new pal Philippa Gordon at her side, Anne tucks  her memories of rural Avonlea away and discovers  life on her own terms, filled with  surprises...including a marriage proposal from the worst fellow  imaginable, the sale of her very first story, and a  tragedy that teaches her a painful lesson. But  tears turn to laughter when Anne and her friends move  into an old cottage and an ornery black cat steals  her heart. Little does Anne know that handsome  Gilbert Blythe wants to win her heart, too. Suddenly  Anne must decide if she's ready for love...
