Overview

Anne's House of Dreams (Illustrated) by L.M. Montgomery

Lucy Maud Montgomery was a Canadian author best known for writing children’s literature. Montgomery’s mother died of tuberculosis when she was an infant. Montgomery was raised by her grandparents in the small community of Cavendish on Prince Edward Island, which was the setting for her most famous works centered around an orphaned girl named Anne. It was Montgomery’s strict and challenging upbringing which indirectly led her down the path to writing as she created imaginary people and places to combat the loneliness she was feeling at such a young age.

At just 16 years old, Montgomery had a poem published in a Charlottetown newspaper. A couple years later she attended the Prince of Wales College in Charlottetown and it took her only 1 year to attain a teacher’s license. Montgomery would later become a teacher at various schools yet it was always writing that she truly loved. She married a Presbyterian minister named Ewen Macdonald. They had 2 sons but Montgomery was quickly overwhelmed as she had to take care of Ewen who became mentally and physically ill. Writing remained her one escape from what was often an unhappy life. Montgomery would end up publishing 20 novels and over 500 short stories and poems in her lifetime.

Montgomery’s Anne’s House of Dreams is the fifth book in the Anne series and begins with Anne and Gilbert Blythe’s wedding. The book then takes the reader through Anne’s married life as the couple buys a home in Four Winds Point. This edition of Anne’s House of Dreams includes a Table of Contents and images of Montgomery and her life, as well as images relating to her works.

Yes, the other review was correct- there is another anne book in the series before this one. If you want the full series list here it is: * anne of green gables * anne of avonlea * anne of the island * anne of windy poplars * anne's house of dreams All in all this is a truly magnificant series i loved it!

This is the entire book. And it's free! It's the only one of the Anne series I could find for free, so I suggest you get it. My only complaint is that there are a few misspellings. However, it doesn't take away from the delightful story in here. Anne and Gilbert are (finally) married and move to, well, Anne's House of Dreams. This story is both deep, lighthearted, and funny. I savored every bit. No spoilers for those who haven't read it yet. Go ahead and get it. FREE.

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!
