Anne and Gilbert join in domestic harmony in this artfully packaged edition of the fourth book in the Anne of Green Gables series.

Anne is marrying Gilbert Blythe! While she's deliriously happy to finally be with her version of Prince Charming, she's devastated when she learns that they will be making their new home miles away from her beloved Avonlea. But Anne is always up for an adventure, especially when she has Gilbert by her side.

The newlyweds settle right in to their house of dreams. Anne couldn't be more content--the house is darling and fits all of her lofty requirements: a bubbling brook running through the property, lots of lovely trees, and close proximity to a beautiful old lighthouse and the sea. In true Anne fashion she immediately makes new friends, including salty Captain Jim, beautiful but tragic Leslie Moore, and prim and proper Miss Cornelia Bryant.

While Anne's days are filled with triumphs and tragedies, her imagination, spirit, and sense of humor guide her as she navigates this next chapter in her extraordinary life.

This addition to the renowned Anne of Green Gables series makes a wonderful gift and keepsake.

"Anne’s House of Dreams is the fifth book in the Anne series by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Beginning from the long-awaited marriage of Anne and Gilbert, this book launches into a dainty and mysterious plot, painted beautifully with new landscapes, with strong, ever-present undertones of the sea, with all its beauty and splendor as well as its harshness, horror, and dark misery.
The novel takes a turn from the happy, peaceful village of Avonlea and the vivid, dizzying world of Summerside. It is set, as aforesaid, on the seascape. Haunting, ethereal, thrilling. Montgomery had a lifelong passion and love for the sea, frequently mentioned in her other novels, journals, and poems. That passion springs to life in this novel, foreshadowing, enriching, becoming a beautiful base for the story with its “voice”.
“The woods call to us with a hundred voices, but the sea has one only — a mighty voice that drowns our souls in its majestic music. The woods are human, but the sea is of the company of the archangels.” - @StarRead of the Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board

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.

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?

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