Publisher Description

A century ago, with the publication of the classic book "Anne of Green Gables," one of the most appealing heroines in children's literature was born. Of course, fans wanted a sequel, and here it is. When twelve-year-old Anne Shirley came to Avonlea, she quickly won everyone's heart. Now, she's five years older, almost a woman, and about to embark on a new adventure: becoming the teacher in her old Avonlea school. It's an exciting year as Anne struggles to win over all her students, welcomes two new members to her family, and feels the first stirrings of love.
