I

An Irate Neighbor


A tall, slim girl, "half-past sixteen," with serious gray eyes and hair
which her friends called auburn, had sat down on the broad red sandstone
doorstep of a Prince Edward Island farmhouse one ripe afternoon in
August, firmly resolved to construe so many lines of Virgil.

But an August afternoon, with blue hazes scarfing the harvest slopes,
little winds whispering elfishly in the poplars, and a dancing slendor
of red poppies outflaming against the dark coppice of young firs in a
corner of the cherry orchard, was fitter for dreams than dead languages.
The Virgil soon slipped unheeded to the ground, and Anne, her chin
propped on her clasped hands, and her eyes on the splendid mass of
fluffy clouds that were heaping up just over Mr. J. A. Harrison's house
like a great white mountain, was far away in a delicious world where a
certain schoolteacher was doing a wonderful work, shaping the destinies
of future statesmen, and inspiring youthful minds and hearts with high
and lofty ambitions.

To be sure, if you came down to harsh facts . . . which, it must be
confessed, Anne seldom did until she had to . . . it did not seem likely
that there was much promising material for celebrities in Avonlea
school; but you could never tell what might happen if a teacher used
her influence for good. Anne had certain rose-tinted ideals of what a
teacher might accomplish if she only went the right way about it; and
she was in the midst of a delightful scene, forty years hence, with a
famous personage . . . just exactly what he was to be famous for was left
in convenient haziness, but Anne thought it would be rather nice to have
him a college president or a Canadian premier . . . bowing low over her
wrinkled hand and assuring her that it was she who had first kindled his
ambition, and that all his success in life was due to the lessons she
had instilled so long ago in Avonlea school. This pleasant vision was
shattered by a most unpleasant interruption.

    Amazing

    This whole series is absolutely wonderful.
    Be sure to read them in this order, it's chronological.
    Anne of Green Gables
    Anne of Avonlea
    Anne of the Island
    Anne of Windy Poplars
    Anne's House of Dreams
    Anne of Ingleside
    Rainbow Valley
    Rilla of Ingleside
    I read them in a different order and I got very confused.

    Wonderful book!

    I first read this book when I was a young girl. I liked it then but reading it as an adult brings more of an appreciation for the story. This is a very heartwarming story. It has all the elements of a great read. Its funny, sad, presents readers with real life issues. It is easy to identify with the characters in this book. There is also sequals to this book. I strongly suggest you read those also. They offer more of the same and they are just as great. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

    Calla ~Dedicated to Travis

    It happens every so once in a while, when that person comes along that just astounds you... big brown eyes, and an even bigger heart, ever and after, that that lifeless gaze... that bullet came in and shattered my life, your doom on impending strife, it only took a rainy day, to end your days forever... a vigil of candles, held in your wake, maybe you'll come back, only a child's hope... that bullet came in and shattered my life, my doom on your life, it only took a rainy day, to end your days forever... forever and ever...

    so charming...

    I am really enjoying re-reading the Anne of Green Gables series as an adult. Anne of Avonlea is the second in the series. In it we see Anne as a girl of 16 who is almost as precocious as she was in the previous book. She's grown up a little though and has become the school teacher of Avonlea. She learns some of life's lessons throughout the book and by the end has become quite a young woman. This series is so charming and beautifully written. Anne's imagination is truly contagious. When I finish one of the books I can't wait to start the next

    Loved the story and the characters. A treasure of a book. By the way, this version is very nice, and doesn't have typos and is not incomplete. I don't know what the other reviews are talking about, but they seem to be for different versions of the book, not this version.
