Publisher's Summary

Anne Shirley, the mischievous, carrot-topped waif of Anne of Green Gables, has grown into a lovely young woman who leaves the security of Prince Edward Island to enroll at Redmond College. There, she discovers a professor who believes education is wasted on women, ponders the security offered in marriage proposals, and a host of other questions of young adulthood.


Audible Editor Reviews

The third book of L. M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables series finds its heroine, Anne Shirley, attending college and falling in love.
A loveable, headstrong orphan in the first book, Anne is a teacher in Avonlea, Nova Scotia, when she enrolls in Redmond College in Halifax. She’s followed by her lifelong friend Gilbert Blythe and Philippa, a charming girl from Anne’s hometown. It’s at college that Anne experiences the death of an old friend and the romantic attention of Roy Gardner. Anne’s ideas about love and friendship are tested and altered by these experiences.
Barbara Caruso’s inviting tone, well-paced narrative, and subtle characterizations make her performance in Anne of the Island stand out.
