One of my favorites in the series. It is so nice to see Anne all grown up and embarking on a life of her own with Gilbert Blythe. Anne successfully adapts to the new home she lives in and quickly makes friends with her neighbors. Captain Jim is a great character and I could only wish there were real people like him out there. Anne's neighbor, Miss Cornelia, seems to have a spite at men and she offers great comic relief throughout the book. Leslie Moore, Anne's nearest neighbor, is a beautiful girl with a tragic history and it is beautiful to see her and Anne develop a very close relationship.
Of course, no life is perfect, not even Anne's and Anne has to deal with a tragedy of her own. But Anne is a great model for patient suffering and gradually recovering joy. Her love of life only grows more with each page and this book is great for everyone. Anne is quite a good role model.
