Anne of the Island

Lucy Maud Montgomery

Date of publication: 1915

Anne of the Island is the continuing story of Anne Shirley and the third book in the Anne of Green Gables series. Anne attends Redmond College in Kingsport, where she is studying for her BA. The book is dedicated to "all the girls all over the world who have "wanted more" about ANNE." There was a gap of six years between the publications of Anne of Avonlea and the publication of this book.

Plot Introduction

Anne leaves her family and her work as a teacher in Avonlea to attend Redmond College for four years. At first, she lives in a boardinghouse, but later shares a house (Patty's Place) with her old friends from Queen's, Priscilla and Stella, her new friend Philippa -- Phil for short -- and Stella's Aunt Jamesina, who takes care of the house for the girls. They also live with three cats, Rusty, Joseph and Sarah-Cat. Anne's trials and adventures include being stalked by a cat which she almost euthanises but ends up adopting, comedic proposals, and visiting the home of her birth parents. Her first proposal is from the brother of her childhood friend Jane Andrews, who uses his sister as an intermediary. Anne refuses, saddened and amused at once this very unromantic first proposal. Charlie Sloane also proposes to her, but she turns him down.
