Much of this segment of the series is composed of letters Anne writes to Gilbert. At first, I was turend off by this element as it was entirely different from the prior novels and because I feared the integrity of the series may not remain intact. My fears were completely unfounded. This is by far my favorite of all the novels. It's nice to be in Anne's perspective for much of the story. I enjoyed every second. Another delightful part of the Anne of Green Gables series.

We love Anne but interest among the Green Gables age group starts to fade and fizzle after AoGG. Windy Poplars is the last one that has a chance of holding that age group's interest. Even Rainbow Valley, following her children, lacks the charm of GG and young Anne. This nook edition is fine.

    Pretty good!

    At first the beginning was really boring so I was thinking about stopping the book. But I kept reading and it became more interesting. Anne meets many new people and faces many adventures, such as babysitting a pair of naughty twins and organizing an elopement! This was a very enjoyable book and I recommend it to anyone who likes romance.

    Anne of Windy Poplars Review

    Anne of Windy Poplars is a very good publication. The whole book is written in letters from Anne Shirley to Gilbert Blyth. Anne Shirley is the main character of the story. She is very pretty with a beautiful face, red hair, and a beautiful body. She is also very smart and brave. Gilbert is Anne¿s boyfriend, I guess you could call him. The whole book though doesn¿t just talk about Gilbert, in fact the book never mentions him except the dear Gilbert parts. The Pringle families are the protagonists, or the bad guys. The Pringles hate Anne just because she is not a Pringle. Although the Pringles all hate Anne, she quickly becomes the towns hero and confidant. By the end of the story, not to give it away, she is very happy and liked by certain people. Anne loves to teach and that is why she moved to Windy Poplars to teach at a new school but moved in with some strange people, one of them is Rebecca Dew. Rebecca Dew is a nice young lady that gets pushed around by the two other house mates. Rebecca has to take care of the house and the house cat, Elizabeth. Rebecca hates Elizabeth because she gets so much attention and just because she hates cats. There are three units to this book labeled years 1, year 2, and year 3. There are 44 chapters throughout the book, 17 in the first year, 13 in the second year, and 14 in the third year. There are 259 pages in the whole book and is number four of the Anne of Green Gables Series and was written by L. M. Montgomery. It probably will take from two weeks to a month to read this book is you spend one or two hours a day reading it. I loved Anne of Windy Poplars and am sure that anyone will if they like sad, happy, angry, mysterious, humorous, and many other types of books. This is a great book and I think that the beginning, middle and end were all good. My favorite unit was year three because of the ending. I always like the endings of books. Anne Shirley really gives the book the wonderful feeling it has. Anne is the spirt of the book and I love to read about her and other characters. I advise you to read this book and the other Anne of Green Gables books.
