Publisher's Summary

At sixteen, Anne is grown up...almost. Her gray eyes shine like evening stars, but her red hair is still as peppery as her temper. In the years since she arrived at Green Gables as a freckle-faced orphan, she has earned the love of the people of Avonlea and a reputation for getting into scrapes. But when Anne begins her job as the new schoolteacher, the real test of her character begins.

Along with teaching the three Rs, she is learning how complicated life can be when she meddles in someone else's romance, finds two new orphans at Green Gables, and wonders about the strange behaviour of the very handsome Gilbert Blythe. As Anne enters womanhood, her adventures touch the heart and the funny bone.

Weird Cadence

I love the story of Anne of Green Gables and the entire Anne series. Anne of Avonlea is a bit slower overall than Anne of Green Gables, but it is a vital piece of the series. My issue is not the story nor the punctuation within it; however, punctuation seems to have escaped Beth Kesler's attention. She pauses at completely random moments that are not dictated by punctuation nor are they needed for effect. The result is an audio version to which it is nearly impossible to listen. I quit listening, in fact, after the first 45 minutes or so. My 7 year old, with whom I listen to books on our way to and from school, noticed it right away and asked if we could please turn it off even though she wanted to hear the story I told her that it might get better, but it didn't. We ended up purchasing the story again but with a different narrator.
