Anne is finally off to Redmond College! While she's sad to be leaving Marilla and the twins, she's excited to finally become a full-fledged BA, and to embark on new adventures with the other Avonlea folks attending Redmond-a group that includes her friend Gilbert Blythe.

At Redmond Anne meets Philippa Gordon, a frivolous but charming girl who pulls Anne into the centre of the Redmond social scene. As Anne becomes the object of several boys' affection, she's faced with numerous proposals she can't possibly accept. Then Gilbert ruins everything by declaring his own feelings for her, and Anne worries that she's lost one of her best friends...and possibly so much more.

This addition to the renowned Anne of Green Gables series makes a wonderful gift and keepsake.

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!

This is the third installment in the "Anne" series, and though it does speed rather fast through her four college years, it remains a great favourite. Anne is studying for a BA, Diana is engaged to Fred Wright, and Mrs Lynde is moving in to Green Gables. You will soon find Anne building new friendships and settling into the college life. However, we've all been waiting for the romance (especially after that delicate little paragraph at the end of "Anne of Avonlea") and our expectations are fully fulfilled with the arrival of a homely preacher, a goggly-eyed Sloane, a dark-eyed ideal, and an old school chum. Besides that, there are laughs, tears, and delightful, witty snippets and quotes. You tend to enjoy it more as an adult than as a child. Five moody, singed-colour cats out of five.

"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."
