The second chapter in the life of Anne Shirley. This book follows Anne from the age of 16 to 18, during the two years that she teaches at Avonlea school. It includes many of the characters from Anne of Green Gables, as well as new ones like Mr. Harrison, Miss Lavendar Lewis, Paul Irving, and the twins Dora and Davy.

It's always too soon to write a fair review of a great book when they always keep you thinking. 4 & 5 stars are worth repeat listenings.
Love Mary Sarah narrating the Anne books. A pleasure listening to the happenings in Avonlea and so disappointed she hasn't read more of the books.
The narration by Mary Sarah is so annoying that it spoils a lovely book. I love this series and thoroughly enjoyed book one narrated by Rachael McAdams but can't stand listening to this one. The voice sounds far too old for 16 year old Anne, the accent is entirely inappropriate for the location of the books and there is no sign of Anne's joyous and lively personality. Mary Sarah's voice is more suited to a prim, elderly spinster.
Say something about yourself!
The story just wasn't as good as the first book but Mary Sarah's narration is still wonderful. My primary complaint is that she has apparently not narrated any more of this series so I'll have to flip a coin to see which of the several different editions of the next books I'll be buying. But putting my annoyances aside, I'm still enjoying this series in spite of (or perhaps because of) it's archaic language and culture.
wonderful story! a childhood favorite that I still enjoy. but the narrator is awful - her manner of speaking is so annoying i almost just got a new book so I didn't have to listen to her.
I loved the story. some times it gets a bit wordy with flowery discriptions
Anne's love of lived and crazy adventures
i did not like the voice
Yes. Anne still needs to fall in love herself
Amazing story, with all the innocence and attraction of Anne of Green Gables and still also able to give you that wonderful feel good factor. I loved every minute of it. It's an excellent pick me up. Mary Sarah's narration was very good, it was nice that she had also narrated Anne of Green Gables so it was quite easy to continue straight into this audio book. In a couple of places there was background noise, also a couple of times lines were repeated. But for what I paid for this I'm not complaining, it was of good quality and far better than the ones in the public domain. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
this is the sequel to anne of green gables and its a wonderful book which is read and performed very well. Its an easy listen for anytime.
This book is so...I don't know how to describe it. Anne has such an imagination and I feel as if I have known her all my life and she is one of my greatest friends.
Thank you so much!!!
"Most annoying fictional child character... Ever!"
The sequel is set immediately after the events of Anne of Green Gables. Anne takes over as teacher in the village school and this book is an enjoyable look at her first few years. It introduces several new characters that Anne befriends and helps. Marilla Cuthbert is left looking after Davy and Dora when a relative dies and Davy serves to get up to the same high jinks as Anne did in the first book. But, he does it without the innocence and charm of Anne, he is the most annoying child in English Literature. A spoilt brat probably with ADHD. I felt like switching the book of when e ever he appeared. But, I persevered and was glad I did. I'm not sure if I need to know what happens to Anne Shirley next. A fine reading by Mary Sarah and well worth the 95p that I paid.
