The boy in the water is, I'm thinking, Shirley, and the tall one is Walter. The girl sitting is Diana.
If the girl in the blue dress holding the flowers is Rilla and the one holding the basket is Nan, or vice versa, then who is the second redhead? Rilla's hair is a softer red, and neither of the Meredith sisters has red hair.

This is technically the 7th book in the Anne of Green Gables series. However, it was the fifth book published. L.M. Montgomery went back later and wrote Anne of Windy Poplars and Anne of Ingleside. I think that is why I often felt as if Anne of Ingleside was more dark than the earlier books in the series.

What I like:
1. All the Blythe children, but especially WALTER. I just love Walter to bunches and bits. I love when he fights despite not wanting to. And how he always dreams and thinks up whimsical things. He makes whimsies manly, Walter does. He's so sweet and I love him.
2. Una. SHE'S SO SWEET. The end.
3. Jem. Jem is a teenager now and he's so handsome and tall. Gah, these children.
4. I loved the beginning of this book, and just GAH. It's Montg ...more

I also really liked Mr. Meredith, who, despite his frequent absence o ...more

I found this hard to get in to at first as there were so many characters to remember and I missed reading about Anne. However after a good 50 pages I got in to it and loved it. I particularly like Faith, Mary Vance and Walter. The adults were well drawn as well and most of us can recognise cer ...more

In this sequel, we do not see much of Anne and her children, as the story is centered around a new family, the Merediths. Mr John Meredith is the new Presbyterian pastor in the village and he lives in the manse with his four children Jerry, Faith, Una and Carl, and old aunt Martha, who has taken on the responsibility of "housekeeping".
The Meredith children are truly loveable, but they are not so well ...more
