Overview

This collection of the first five Anne Shirley novels is sure to please you. They are chock full of humorous and romantic stories that are suitable for young girls. Formatted specifically for the NOOK with an interactive table of contents, this volume contains the following unabridged, original novels:
ANNE OF GREEN GABLES
When Matthew Cuthbert goes to meet the train and pick up his new adopted son, he is surprised to find a little red-headed girl. Not knowing what else to do, he brings her home. By the time they get there, she has already wormed her way into his heart.
ANNE OF AVONLEA
The second chapter in the life of Anne Shirley. This book follows Anne from the age of 16 to 18, during the two years that she teaches at Avonlea school. It includes many of the characters from Anne of Green Gables, as well as new ones like Mr. Harrison, Miss Lavendar Lewis, Paul Irving, and the twins Dora and Davy.
ANNE OF THE ISLAND
Anne leaves Green Gables, and her work as a teacher in Avonlea, to pursue her original dream (which she gave up in "Anne of Green Gables"), to take further education at Redmond College in Nova Scotia. Gilbert Blythe and Charlie Sloane are there as well, as are Anne's friends from Queens's College, Priscilla Grant and Stella Maynard. During her first week of school, Anne befriends Philippa Gordon, a beautiful and lighthearted girl from Anne's birthplace, which is Bolingbroke, Nova Scotia.
ANNE OF WINDY POPLARS
Anne of Windy Poplars tells about the three years between Anne's graduation from Redmond College and her marriage to Gilbert Blythe. Anne has taken a job as the principal at Summerside High School, where she also teaches. She lives in a large house called Windy Poplars with two elderly widows, Aunt Kate and Aunt Chatty, plus their housekeeper, Rebecca Dew, and their cat, Dusty Miller. During her time in Summerside, Anne must learn to manage many of Summerside's inhabitants, including the clannish and resentful Pringle family, her bitter colleague Katherine Brooke, and others of Summerside's more eccentric residents.
ANNE’S HOUSE OF DREAMS
This book chronicles Anne's early married life, as she and her childhood sweetheart Gilbert Blythe begin to build their life together. The book starts with Anne's wedding to Gilbert, which is very small and takes place in the Green Gables orchard. After Anne and Gilbert's wedding, they move to a house that Anne has long anticipated as her "house of dreams", in Four Winds Point, an area near the village of the Glen St. Mary.

    Wonderful story, great e-pub conversion!

    I've read this story before and seen the move more than once, but I still very much enjoyed reading it again. The publisher (American!)has done a great job of converting to the electronic format. I found none of that illegible gibberish that some e-books have, so I was able to fully enjoy the story. I did notice a typo or two, but at least I understood what it was supposed to say, and it was only a minimal distraction. I plan to work my way through this Ryetown Classics series.

    Great Read!

    A feisty young heroine growing up on Prince Edwards Island is the center of this book. She has the best of intentions but things don't always work out the way she thinks they will. The story is filled with wonderful characters in the community. The author has done a wonderful job of painting a picture of the flowers, trees, seasons, ponds etc. on the island and around the Green Gables Home. You will feel that you have been to Prince Edward Island. Just imagine a teenager without any electronics living in a simpler time who uses her own imagination to enrich her life. Can't wait to start the next book in this series.
