Overview

Anne of Windy Poplars by L. M. Montgomery

Anne Shirley has left Redmond College behind to begin a new job and a new chapter of her life away from Green Gables. Now she faces a new challenge: the Pringles. They're known as the royal family of Summerside - and they quickly let Anne know she is not the person they had wanted as principal of Summerside High School. But as she settles into the cozy tower room at Windy Poplars, Anne finds she has great allies in the widows Aunt Kate and Aunt Chatty - and in their irrepressible housekeeper, Rebecca Dew. As Anne learns Summerside's strangest secrets, winning the support of the prickly Pringles becomes only the first of her triumphs.

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.

This is one of my favorites in Montgomery's body of work, and in particular in this series. This novel is also published as "Anne of Windy Willows" in the UK. It was one of the last ones of the series written, but the fourth one in the series chronologically. It's easy to tell it was written later in her writing career because the voice and writing quality are much more polished. The plotting is tighter, and it has to be to get Anne through this difficult period. This is the time of life that, in the era this takes place, is very difficult for women. It's after graduation from college, working, but before marriage. Considering most women didn't attend college in Anne's day, and that it was highly controversial for them to do so, I'm not at all surprised that Montgomery left this chapter of Anne's life until later to write. She pulled it off with grace, finesse, and a good dose of humor.

Things move on apace in Anne's world and this installment of the series finds her as headmistress of a high school and living in a house called Windy Poplars. This book deals more with Anne's relationship to Gilbert and her impending marriage and is written in epistolary form.A slight departure from the previous books it focuses solely on Anne's experience from a first person point of view.It's not my favourite, but it deserves full marks. And the next novel picks things up again properly.

Anne of Windy Poplars is the fourth installment of the Anne of Green Gables series. It is mostly set in a city called Summerside. Anne has left Redmond College to begin a job as principal of Summerside High School. She ends up staying in a place called ¿Windy Poplars¿ with two widows and an old maid. Throughout the story Anne has to face winning the affections of the Pringle family, solving marital problems between her friends, and helping a little girl named Elizabeth find laughter in the world.As with the rest of the series, this book is a thrilling read, with sorrows and triumphs. I feel that this book is missing something that the others have (it is probably the absence of Gilbert, who rarely shows up in this book), but it is fun and exciting all the same. I would recommend this book to all fans of Anne of Green Gables, as well as to those who are simply looking for laughter and magic in their life.

This book really disappointed me in comparison to the earlier Anne books. Montgomery tries a new epistolary style in this book, writing most of the chapters as letters from Anne to Gilbert. There is never any reply, lending the stories a dull, one-sided feel, and the passages are occasionally interrupted by authorial comments like "(two pages omitted here)" where Anne is ostensibly writing her private romantic thoughts to her beloved. The letters just don't work as a narrative device, being especially annoying to the modern reader in their use of quotation marks at the beginning of every paragraph, with additional internal quotation marks for actual dialogue, and Montgomery further disrupts her attempts at a new literary technique by reverting to the omniscient narrator perspective for several chapters. Anne seems to meet someone brand new in almost every chapter, but doesn't form very deep attachments with that many people, and the reader is given little to no hint of her having any meaningful communication with old characters during her visits home. Montgomery misses the opportunity to derive a meaningful narrative thread from the three years during which Anne must work and wait before marrying Gilbert, thus lending the unfortunate impression that Anne is just another grown woman with nothing to do but sit around and wait to be married. It feels as if Montgomery ended her previous novel in what she felt was the most romantic possible fashion, and then didn't know how to deal with the separation she had imposed on her main characters. Perhaps this book was a literary experiment of sorts. Unfortunately, it didn't work.

A must read for all "Anne of Green Gables " fans. Unforgettable characters, adventures, misadventures with Anne at the center make this tale one not to be missed.

This wonderful book is about an young woman (20-25 yrs old) named Anne Shirly. Anne writes letters to a boy in Green Gables who teaches school like she does, named Gilbert about her days at Windy Poplers. My favortie (but saddest part yet) is when Anne meets a little boy named Thedore, who asked for a picture to send to his house for his dad. But the day they were going to give it to his father next thing they knew poor little Thedore was ........... DEAD!!!! (sobbing, crying) Sorry that was SO SAD!!!!!!!!!!!! - Tigerpaws aka Julia Harger

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.
