Anne of Ingleside

Finished Anne of Ingleside, the sixth book in Lucy Maude Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables series. Anne with an "e" now has six children: Jem, Walter, Shirley (it was a boy's name back then), Rilla, and because twins seem to be her lot in life, twin girls Diana and Nan. I'm a little surprised that she did not choose Matthew as the name for one of her boys. This makes me a bit sad really.

Anne, Gilbert, Susan and the children now live at Ingleside, a large house adjacent to Rainbow Valley. This book focuses mostly on the adventures of Anne's children with occasional chapters focusing on Anne and Gilbert's marriage. It's a happy book, especially after the sadness of Anne's House of Dreams. What will I do when I run out of Anne books to read?

Read them again!

Have you read the Emilys, the Pats, and Story Girls? My favorite LM Montgomery books are her journals. They're not easy to find, but so worth the work hunting them down.

Good idea! I'll just read the other series when I finish Anne. Thanks!
