Anne's House of Dreams
A new life means fresh problems to solve, fresh surprises. Anne and Gilbert ...more
I recently went to an event at the Margaret Mitchell House featuring romance authors, and one of the questions was "What's your favorite literary kiss?" I started thinking about my own answer, and decided it might be the very end of "Anne of the Island" - FINALLY Anne realized she ...more
You'll stay right here with me, Anne-girl," said Gilbert lazily. "I won't have you flying away from me into the hearts of storms.Oh, that's right. She got married.
I miss the adventuring Young Anne - with haunted woods and dryad's bubble.
I wish we still had the College-gal Anne - with her little cottage of friends.
I would even prefer the Schoolmistress Anne - battling the Pringles and educating young minds.
Anne was strong, independent, with dreams and ambitions of ...more

"Well, married life will most likely cure her of that," Mrs. Lynde responded comfortingly.
Woo-hoo! This is the moment we've been waiting for - the wedding of Anne and Gilbert.
After a simple ceremony at Green Gables, the two lovebirds head to a small house in Four Winds Harbour. (As this book was first published in 1917, there are, or course, no details of the wedding night. That's rather a pity, as I would love to hear Anne's ...more
Yes, if you read between the lines (and "decode" the stork metaphor), then you know that there's a lot more than kissing happening in their "house of dreams", but the on-page count is in the single digits. Saddest trombone noises.
1. I am very frustrated by my reaction to this book on this reread. It's for multiple reasons, but the gist of it is that it didn't tell the story I remembered it telling, ...more
This is most definitely my favourite! It makes you smile, it makes you cry and it makes you feel.
To think I've missed out on it before is almost heartbreaking. But never the less, it's part of me now and I will forever cherish it and hold it O so close to my heart.
Really didn't like the setting, every page seemed to have some long, detailed description of Anne's House or the area surrounding it and it was plain boring. I did enjoy some of the new characters though, Cornelia, Owen, and Captain Jim were all great. The parts that were most interesting though were the ones which mentioned Green Gables or had old characters from Green Gables pop up. Anne/Gilbert's relationship was rather weird, after four books of waiting for them to properly get ...more
Rating: 3.5 stars
I thought I had never read this book, but I was evidently mistaken! Every book in this series has it’s share of ups and downs, but this installment had the most devastating heartbreak. There was heartbreak on more than one front, but beauty and healing were still right around the corner. Here we have Anne fully grown and embarking on married life. Her joys are now deeper, but her sorrows are those of an adult, as well. She ...more
Anyway, this book explores the beginning of Gil and Anne’s ...more
Me, listening to Anne of Avonlea and Anne of the Island:
Me, listening to Anne's House of Dreams:
I usually say Windy Poplars is my favorite Anne book; not this time around. Not just because it took me forever to find an audio edition (or because when I did find one the ...more
In book five of this much-beloved series, Anne begins her married life. I don’t want to say any more because I don’t want to include spoilers.
What I love about these books is Anne, herself. She’s so optimistic and friendly, with good common sense, a kind heart, and a generous spirit. She is no stranger to trouble and heartache, and this book definitely includes some heart-wrenching events, but she relies on her strength of character to see her through, and ...more
The newlyweds settle right in to their house of dreams. Anne couldn’t be more content—the house is darling and fits all of her lofty requirements: a bubbling brook running through the ...more
"A magic casement opening on the foam
Of perilous seas in fairy lands forlorn"
And the loveliness persists! I don't understand how L.M. Montgomery does it. Her prose is infectious, her storytelling is melodious and her characters are charming. She builds it all up, slowly, beautifully lovingly and while you begin with a huge smile on your face, you end in tears.
Anne's House of Dreams finally had Anne and Gilbert married. There's no "emphasis" on the romance between the two, rather on Anne's...more
