This is one of the two Anne books that isn't available as a recorded book. (Anne of Windy Poplars is the other.) I read it while I was still listening to Rainbow Valley.

This book is more a series of vignettes about Anne's children than it is a novel--and some of Anne's kids are pretty boring. (*cough* Nan and Di *cough*) It was a sweet, fun read all the same. My favorite parts were the ones that dealt more with adults than children--the story of the funeral, the gossip Walter overhears, Anne's fears about Gilbert's love for her.

I wish Montgomery had written more about Anne as an adult. She virtually disappears as a character after Anne's House of Dreams, although there are a few glimpses of her in the last three books--I think more in this one than in the other two.
