Montgomery, was a Canadian author best known for a series of novels beginning with Anne of Green Gables, published in 1908. Anne of Green Gables was an immediate success. The central character, Anne, an orphaned girl, made Montgomery famous in her lifetime and gave her an international following. The first novel was followed by a series of sequels with Anne as the central character. Montgomery went on to publish 20 novels as well as 500 short stories and poems. Because many of the novels were set on Prince Edward Island, Canada and the Canadian province became literary landmarks. She was awarded Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1935.

    House o dreams

    This was among the best books in the seires, although the entire seires was probably the best i ever read. Though i did not like that Joyce died. I had looked foward to this book alot and when the wedding happened i think i was dissapointing. There should have been more detail. But like the other books it was ecedingly well writen.

    On ONE OF THESE REVIEWS IS WRONG!!!!!

    Someone said that this book was the fifth in this series, and that is corect. The only thing that this person said was wrong was that they said that the fourth in this series, Anee of Windy Poplars, was not avaliable. WRONG!!!!!!! Think im wrong? Type in the title. Its their!!!!! So if youve just finished anne of the island and want something more then anne of windy poplars is your next read!!!

    I Also Recommend:

    One of the best of the Anne Series

    Besides the first book, I liked "Anne's House of Dreams" the best so far out of the whole series. Why? Although Anne and Gilbert are finally married, the tone of this book isn't so "cutsy-perfect" as some of the other books are. Hardships and tragedies actually occur, and we read how Anne and other characters handle them. A couple complaints: I wish Gilbert appeared more in the book, but we should be grateful for what we get of him in this story becauase he appears even less in the next. The wedding of Anne and Gilbert was kind of a let down. There was a big build up to this moment ever since Gilbert first yanked Anne's hair in the first book, and then when they finally got married, it was like we weren't even invited to the wedding! I would have at least liked a description of her wedding dress! I loved the banter between Captain Jim and Miss Cornelia, but for some reason I did not take to Susan Baker. I guess I felt like she got "in the way"... there always seemed to be other characters around Anne and Gilbert, and sometimes I just wanted our main characters to be left alone with each other more often! I could see, hear, and smell every scene in the story (my compliments to the author). This book also includes one of the biggest plot twists I've ever read! I'm a pretty good "guesser" but I was NOT expecting this!

    Spoiler: I'm glad Anne learned how to live and still enjoy life after the death of Joy. And I was so happy for Leslie that things turned out right in the end. Lessons could be learned from her strange circumstance. No matter what, do the right thing and be patient.. God will bring good about from any circumstance in the end for those who love Him.

    Wrong series number

    Anne's House of Dreams is actually book 5 in the series. They don't have Anne of Windy Poplars which is actually book 4 in the series. If you're listening website editors, you need to change this. Having Anne of Windy Poplars in ebook available as book 4 might be nice as well.

    book number five...

    Anne's House of Dreams is book number five in the Green Gables series. Anne's first year of marriage is filled with perfect happiness. But with the happiness comes tragic heartbreak. Life at Four Winds Harbor is never dull and Anne takes life as it comes. The Anne of Green Gables series is beautifully written with stunning descriptions. I am really enjoying re-reading these books!

    Truly a Dream

    Anne's House of Dreams is wonderful. It leaves you breathless. I love this novel. Miss Corneilia is the greatest, and I cried so much when Captian Jim died. Definitely a great sequel to all the others. A must read for readers of all ages

    This is a Wonderful Book

    ¿The night winds were beginning their wild dances beyond the bar, and the fishing hamlet across the harbour was gemmed with lights Anne and Gilbert drove up the poplar lane. The door of the little house opened, and a warm glow of firelight flickered out into the dusk. Gilbert lifter Anne from the buggy and led her into the garden, through the little gate between the ruddy-tipped firs, up the trim, red path to the sandstone step. ¿Welcome home,¿ he whispered, and had in hand they stepped over the threshold of their house of dreams¿..¿ What a romantic introduction, don¿t you think? Well, if you liked that part, you will definitely like the book Anne¿s House of Dreams by L.M. Montgomery. This book is about a girl named Anne, and her true love, Gilbert finally getting married and settling into a life that¿s their own. So they buy a house in Four Winds, that Anne calls their house of dreams. However what she doesn¿t know is what will happen while she¿s in this house. The newlyweds have gotten off to a great start. Gilbert has a job as the town¿s doctor, and Anne is making new friends everyday. Miss. Cornelia and Captain Jim have been a great help to get them settled in and tell them about Four Winds. However there is this one person that Anne can¿t figure out. She can¿t get close enough to know her, but she knows that if she could they would be great friends. Unlike other books I have read, this one has a moral that stuck out to me. The lesson I think that Ms. Montgomery was trying to teach was that not everything in life goes as we want it to. But sometimes things work out for the best. This book is very romantic, yet it is realistic at the same time. There are plenty of surprises, heartbreaks, and joyous moments in this book. It will make you laugh, cry, and you won¿t be able to put the book down. You will learn things that will stay with you for a long time. I absolutely love this book, but I would suggest reading the first four books before this book if you have the time. So if you are looking for a book to read, that is highly recommended, then read this book. I couldn¿t suggest a better book. Now go out and read this book and find out what happens to Anne and her House of Dreams!

    I LOVE IT!!!!!

    How would you like when you grow up to have all your dreams come true? Well this is what happened in the story I read. It is called ¿Anne¿s House of Dreams¿. Anne¿s life has changed from being a little orphan girl to a bride married to her true love Gilbert. Now they¿re going to spend the rest of their lives loving each other. I really like stories like this because they are old fashioned and show how people lived before all of this technology came. In the story Anne and Gilbert are finally married and they decide to move to a different town because Gilbert is going to take over his uncle¿s practice. They move into a nice house which Anne and Gilbert call it their ¿house of dreams¿. They meet a lot of different people and quickly become friends. Although some of the people they met weren¿t always the nicest people at first, but when you got to know them they turned out to be great friends. The only thing I have against some of the characters in the story was that they were to outgoing and that they would come over without even calling. What I am referring to is when Captain Jim came over to Anne¿s house without her knowing, which she didn¿t have a problem with. If that were me, I would have gotten really angry. This book is a book that shows real life struggles, problem, tragedies, and basically the true meaning of life. I think if you would like to see how people worked before they had machinery, television, cars, etc¿. then this would be an excellent book. This book actually talks you in the seat of the characters and makes you feel that you are in their situations. I really don¿t think that this is a book for people that like action and killing. I feel that this book really touches the heart. The story was kind plain in some sense, but over all I enjoyed the book. I am very sure that a lot of people will like the book and that they will be as moved as I was. I am so positive that my friends would love this book. The way the setting was described in the book almost made you feel that you were actually there. The plot in the story was so overwhelmingly interesting but as I say again it was sort of plain. The romance in the novel was so moving and touching, that I wish that when I get married I would like to have the same kindle between Anne and Gilbert. In conclusion, this was a great book and when you see how moving and touching the book is you would fall in love with it as I did.

    Wonderful Book. Wonderful Series

    This is such a wonderful series of books. I hope that these books last forever because I believe that every generation should get to know Anne and all of her friends and family. These books are so sweet and wonderfully written- L.M. Montgomery truly knew how to transport the imagination to another time and place.
