Publisher's Summary

Five years have passed since the orphan girl Anne Shirley came to live in the childless home of Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert. She has returned to Avonlea to teach in the same village school where she herself was taught. Her earlier friends, Diana Barry, Jane Andrews, Priscilla Gray, and Gilbert Blyth, have also become teachers at neighboring village schools. A mysterious new neighbor and his parrot named Ginger are now added to the original cast of characters. And there are the mischievious but darling Keith twins, Davy and Dora, whom Marilla has adopted.


What the Critics Say

"With a brisk pace and pleasant, natural style, O'Malley's voice makes a good match for Anne's sweet-natured temperament and higher energy....O'Malley gives the many narrative passages, and Anne's parts, a lively quality, while setting an overall tone of nostalgia to match the story."

Disappointing reading

I found the reading of this book very disappointing. The reader was curiously monotonous and sometimes mis-pronounced words or applied an inappropriate emphasis which seemed to indicate she wasn't thinking about what she was reading.

anne of avonlea

I felt that this was very poorly read; the children's voice's sounded very similar and lacked the joy of childhood naivity and discovery. I had listened to Anne of Green Gables read by another narrator - no contest.
