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...

Like a breeze of fresh air, going back to the world of Avonlea and the characters of Anne, Gilbert, Diana, and their friends and family gives me the most refreshing feeling. And in this one we get to see Anne and Gilbert's relationship change, though not without some major bumps in the road. Anne's life as a college student at Redmond with her friends old and new becomes a time for her to learn many lessons about life. A most satisfying read that I would recommend to anyone!

This has to be my favorite by far. I love the growing morals that Anne learns. She is told that humans aren't perfect, which contributes to her seeing how they are flawed and how she really loves Gilbert. Gilbert...*sigh* Gosh, I am so glad he was there. We get more of him and sometimes less but I loved him. I would recommend this book!

The third book in the Anne series. A fantastic read that takes us through Anne's college years and romantic experiences. A great book that has amazing themes and lessons about the subject of love and friendship. The writing speeds through some pivotal moments, and drags through some of the unnecessary things, much like real life love, now that I think about it. A must-read for fans of Anne of Green Gables!

"I have a dream. I persist on dreaming it, even though at times it seems as if it will never come true. I dream of a house, with a hearth-fire in it, cats, and dogs, and footsteps of friends... and you!" -Gilbert Blythe

"Laugh at your mistakes but learn from them, joke over your troubles but gather strength from them, make a jest of your difficulties but overcome them."
