Publisher's Summary

Everyone who falls in love with irrepressible, red-haired Anne Shirley longs to know more of her life and adventures. Now, on the very eve of her wedding to Dr. Gilbert Blythe, we can come back into Anne's world in Anne's House of Dreams. Anne is about to leave Green Gables forever and travel with her cherished Gilbert to the misty purple shore of Four Winds Harbor. There is the perfect house with a brook cutting through the garden and a fireplace in the parlor. Can all Anne's dreams come true here? Perhaps, but secrets and mysteries whistle in the breezes.

Anne is soon investigating the ghostly tragedy haunting Leslie Moore, the golden-haired beauty next door, and finding a husband for the man-hating Miss Cornelia, as this volume in the Anne of Green Gables series captures all our hearts once again.

    I am retired and I love having more time for audio books. I also enjoy hiking, birding, gardening, and genealogy.

    "Great narrator, the best 'Anne' book yet"

    Susan O'Malley is a wonderful narrator, as she narrates books the way they should be considering they were written in the early 1900's. I wouldn't want to hear anyone else narrate one of these wonderful books. She is very talented in knowing just how to narrate the 'Anne' stories.
    Don't be put off by the age of these stories or by thinking they are for children. I only realized reading this story that these books weren't written for children but for adults who remember what it was to be young. They bring back the old values of the past that we wish hadn't disappeared. The stories have brought tears to my eyes and made me laugh out loud.
    Start from the beginning and let Anne be a part of your life!

    "Great book, poor narrator"

    This book about the beginning of Anne's married life is much more fun for a grown reader than the first couple books in the series. Lots to appreciate on many levels. But ... the narrator is one of the worst I have ever heard. She has a very monotonous voice with no sense of rhythm, often puts too much space between words, and doesn't differentiate characters well or capture the character as written by the author.

    "But what about Anne?"

    After the previous book I read, this was the perfect pallet cleanser – but still I’m disappointed.

    Anne is but a mere secondary character in her own story, and Gilbert is far far far out in the periphery… it’s such a shame.

    I would have preferred to read more about her marriage, her wedding night, her pregnancy, her relationship with Gilbert – her LIFE!

    Sadly it felt like a repeat of previous books, meaning lots of description about the world around her and lots of detail regarding someone ELSE’S adventures.

    "classic virtue"

    Reading or re-reading this great classic of young ladies' lit is like being wrapped in a sun-warmed, fresh-washed quilt.

    "Wonderful"

    It's really a wonderful read! There are times when the narrator sounds exactly like the Anne Shirley I knew from TV with Megan Follows! Brings back wonderful memories... Makes you want to watch the series all over again!

    Story
    "Sweet and sorrowful"

    I most love Anne's House of Dreams as where she enters into womanhood, according to the customs and traditions of her time. Some might point to the staid morals as anti-feminist, but I believe Anne was truly the most empowered and tolerant person one could be. She accepted others quirks where others may have spurned them, and she was in a marriage where she was equal to her husband in esteem

    "slow reader"
    Where does Anne's House of Dreams rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book was good, but the reader was frustrating--slow, and didn't play the part of the actors in voice changes.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan O'Malley’s performances?

    Probably not.

    "Great story and performance"

    I listen to this story over and over. The author brings her characters to life for her readers and makes them seem like our own dear friends. This is my favorite "Anne" story because of the many lovable characters and their life events and interactions with each other.
