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.

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.
A fabulous performance of this great classic. This story is timeless and a joy to listen to again and again.
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 characters are read in such a snippy upbeat way, the voices don't fit the characters much at all. I don't mind the reader's voice, but her clipped words and lilting tones do not fit the book and distracted from the whimsical leisurely feel of the writing.
The story is amazing. Love everything about it.
Her voice would work for other stories, I'm sure...but she doesn't read Anne well.
Of course, the book is fantastic...it was just the voice of the reader that made it less than stellar.
Just cant stop reading Anne of Green Gable stories. I really loved Sarah Mary's narration. I felt so sad when a realized there's no more Anne green gables narration with her. In General Anne Shirley are my favorite books ever.
"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.
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.
