Every girl dreams of her perfect wedding day ... For Anne Shirley, those dreams are about to come true as she marries her one true love, Gilbert Blythe, in the dappled sunshine of the old orchard at Green Gables. Soon the two will be moving to their own little dream house on the misty shores of Four Winds Harbor. And a new home means new neighbors--including the adventurous lighthouse keeper Captain Jim and the tragically beautiful Leslie Moore. In their first years together, Anne and Gil will experience both heartbreak and joy, and, of course, plenty of scope for the imagination. With Anne's beautiful gift of transforming the everyday into the extraordinary, it's easy to see why she's become a beloved classic of generations of readers around the world and a favorite of everyone from Mark Twain to Duchess Kate. This new edition lovingly restores the original, unabridged text and includes an all-new, exclusive introduction with special memories from L.M. Montgomery's granddaughter.

I thought this book would be more about Anne and Gilbert's lives as newlyeweds than about everybody else. There is not one drop of romance.

I love this story, with Gilbert and Anne getting settled into their first little home, where they experince the birth and death of their first little daughter, and then the birth of their healthy son. Leslie Moore adds more color. All in all; great!

This is less romantic than I thought. At lest Leslie Moore gets some romance in this one. It's actually not that bad.

There is an obvious aversion to the discussion of certain subjects in this novel. Apparently Lucy Maud Montgomery feels that some things just aren’t talked about.

Things that happen that aren’t talked about, in decreasing order of how much they are talked about (MAJOR SPOILERS):

1. Weddings
2. Death of a child
3. Childbirth
4. Pregnancy
5. Sex

"'Some might say, that a Redmond B.A, whom editors were beginning to honor, is "wasted" as the wife of a struggling doctor in the rural town of Four Winds.'
'Gilbert!'
If you had married Roy Gardner, now,' continued Gilbert mercilessly, 'YOU might have been 'a leader in social and intellectual circles.'
'Gilbert BLYTHE!'
'You KNOW you were in love with him once, Anne.'
'I was not! I only thought I was. You know, Gilbert. You know I'd rather be your wife in our house of dreams than a queen in a palace.'
Gilbert's answer was in more than words..."

SIGH. Oooooooh I love it.
TYPED FROM MEMORY.
Yup- I know this by heart. Whatever. Don't mention it. So what if I'm slightly obsessed? Or, ya know, a lot obsessed? So what?

"'The nurse says he is to have red hair. Anne is furious with her, and I'm tickled to death!'"

"'Oh, you mothers!' Said Gilbert, putting his arms around them. 'You mothers! God knew what He was about when He made you."
