Anne's own true love, Gilbert Blythe, is finally a doctor, and in the sunshine of the old orchard, among their dearest friends, they are about to speak their vows. Soon the happy couple will be bound for a new life together and their own dream house, on the misty purple shores of Four Winds Harbor.

A new life means fresh problems to solve, fresh surprises. Anne and Gilbert will make new friends and meet their neighbors: Captain Jim, the lighthouse attendant, with his sad stories of the sea; Miss Cornelia Bryant, the lady who speaks from the heart -- and speaks her mind; and the tragically beautiful Leslie Moore, into whose dark life Anne shines a brilliant light.

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.

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."
