will you let me be just as bad as I like all the next day?" asked Davy.

1st Paragraph 1st Chapter - 
Tuesday Intros
at Diane's Bibliophile by the Sea 

" an August afternoon with blue hazes scarfing the harvest slopes, little winds whispering elfishly in the poplars and a dancing slendour of red poppies outflaming against the dark coppice of young firs in a corner of the cherry orchard was fitter for dreams than dead languages."
*
Both quotes are part of LM Montgomery's
ANNE OF GREEN GABLES
series book 2 which I'm listening to via audiobook from Post Hypnotic Press
*
Following Anne of Green Gables (1908), the book covers the second chapter in the life of Anne Shirley from the age of 16 to 18, during the two years that she teaches at Avonlea school. It includes many of the characters from Anne of Green Gables, as well as new ones.

ANNE OF AVONLEA

At sixteen, Anne is grown up...almost. Her gray eyes shine like evening stars, but her red hair is still as peppery as her temper. In the years since she arrived at Green Gables as a freckle-faced orphan, she has earned the love of the people of Avonlea and a reputation for getting into scrapes. But when Anne begins her job as the new schoolteacher, the real test of her character begins. Along with teaching the three Rs, she is learning how complicated life can be when she meddles in someone else's romance, finds two new orphans at Green Gables, and wonders about the strange behaviour of the very handsome Gilbert Blythe. As Anne enters womanhood, her adventures touch the heart and the funny bone.

The description of the flowers is beautiful. I wonder what's wrong with Gilbert? No wonder these books are classics.

Sarah (Sarah's Book Shelves) said...

I remember reading this when I was younger, but don't remember one thing about it! Maybe it needs a re-read...

Sandra Nachlinger said...

A classic! I enjoyed the poetic description in today's Teaser.
