discover the next chapter in their lives Sadly my enjoyment of Montgomery s Anne series diminishes as the seriesthe next chapter in their lives Sadly my enjoyment of Montgomery s Anne series diminishes as the series along While even those books set outside of Avonlea still manage to contain wonderful characters who add such lovely color to the stories especially the Redmond group and the clan at Windy Poplars once Anne is married and sets up house the appeal goes Not Handsome Enough right out the window for me One must agree with Gilbert s statement in House of Dreams that many people would indeed think that Anne a Redmond BA and a published author is wasted as wife to a poor country doctor While I as These books have a special place in my heart now 3 I can definitely see these being ones that I willeread over and over again as I get older D Like I ve said before the characters are just what makes these books so great to me We got to meet some new ones in this oneCaptain Jim Miss Cornelia and Leslie Moore are a few I was surprised by how much development Leslie s character went through in the story and I just enjoyed seeing her grow I loved getting to see Anne and Gilbert as husband and wife of course too It is getting much harder now to try and pick a favorite Anne book P but for ight now I think this one and Anne of the Island are tied and the very first one is my second favorite What happened to Anne You ll stay ight 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 Busy Park 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 mindsAnne was strong independent with dreams and ambitions of writing I liked to see how sheeached out and over the heads of many women who were confined to traditional ollsAnd all of a sudden her highest goal "is to be married and to aise children It s like L M Montgomery flipped married and to aise children It s like L M Montgomery flipped switch I suppose at those "to be married and to aise children It s like L M Montgomery flipped a switch I suppose at those women were expected to contentedly give up everything to The Confederate Privateers raise the children but Anne used to have her heart set on so so many things And for her to give all that up without even the slightest protestShe does still have her uiet dreamy ness and her thoughtless meddling but everything is so much tamer So much domestic Oh Marilla I thought I was happy before Now I know that I just dreamed a pleasant dream of happiness This is theeality Soshe does it becausehappinessThis whole book had me uestioning everything Namely what was even the point of the first four books We spend so much time following Anne through her education She spent so many of years of her life doing her best in school solely so she could become a school teacher Then only a few years in she completely drops everything L M Montgomery forced Anne into marriage and erased convenient bits of her personality to fit her into the moldAudiobook Anne's own true love Gilbert Blythe is finally a doctor and in the sunshine of the old orchard among their dearest friends they are about to speak their vows Soon the happy couple will be bound for a new life together.

Der Bilderwächter rooted and lasting adult friendships andelationships Leslie Moore and Anne Blythe The Blythes friendship with Captain Jim and yes even Anne and Gilbert while of course now married have always considered their bond with one another first and foremost as a link between good comrades between good and sweet friends and yes one also and of course cannot and should not forget Miss Cornelia Bryant who even though she always and forever claims to despise men is still engaged in a very deep and personal friendship not only with Anne and Leslie but also with both Gilbert and Captain Jim And therefore in Anne s House of Dreams not only Anne and Gilbert s marriage but actually almost ALL of the diverse elationships presented and featured by LM Montgomery tend to evocatively and caressingly conjure up a specifically enchanted and poetic environs and landscape where to uote Miss Cornelia the ace that knows Joseph where kindred spirits are able to live thrive and feel both safe and loved and also somewhat protected And while sadness tragedy and even possible evil although horrors certainly do threaten and aise their dangerous at times in the end home love friendship and trust are omnipresently there to always ebuild and Schätze Aus Dem Musée Picasso, Paris reaffirm Now for thoseeaders who are used to LM Montgomery s fiction being primarily positive accounts of sugar spice and everything nice Anne s House of Dreams might well be a bit of a shock to their Letters to Rollins reading expectations as both Leslie Moore s life story as well as Anne s own tragedy of her firstborn daughter dying immediately post birth doather vividly demonstrate and point out that LM Montgomery was both well aware that life can also often be filled with sadness and pain and that she was also than willing to depict this to actually put this down on paper and indeed to even have her main protagonist to have Anne ShirleyBlythe experience this And actually for me personally it is in fact and indeed the episodes of depicted and Britain, Europe And The Third World related sadness and primarily both Leslie Moore s sad story of thwarted love and being basically sold in marriage and Anne Blythe losing her first born child immediately after birth that do make Anne s House of Dreams such an enjoyable and also sadlyealistic tale a story endered all the lovely and satisfying by the fact that the pain and tragedy of Leslie s and Anne s experiences then later make both Leslie finding and marrying Owen Ford and Anne giving birth to a healthy baby to little Jem all the sweet although I do indeed ealise and accept that some eaders might possibly find how Leslie Moore s story is elated and how it unfolds a bit too over the top and unbelievable. Ouse attendant with his sad stories of the sea; Miss Cornelia Bryant the lady who speaks from the heart and speaks her mind; and the tragically beautiful Leslie Moore into whose dark life Anne shines a brilliant light.
