Über das eBook

Anne Shirley marries Gilbert Blythe in the Green Gables orchard. After the wedding, they move to their first home together, which Anne calls their "house of dreams". Gilbert finds them a small house on the seashore at Four Winds Point, an area near the village of Glen St. Mary, where he is to take over his uncle's medical practice. In Four Winds, Anne and Gilbert meet many interesting people and form some new friendships, but her house of dreams might soon become too small for her expanding family.

Über den Autor

Lucy Maud Montgomery, born on November 30, 1874, in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, Canada, is renowned for her literary contributions that have enchanted readers worldwide. Trained as a teacher and a journalist, Montgomery possessed an inherent flair for the written word, an endowment that flourished in her creation of some of the most beloved characters in Canadian literature. Her most famous work, 'Anne of Green Gables' (1908), sprang from the verdant landscapes and vibrant communities of her island upbringing, giving life to the spirited Anne Shirley. 'Anne's House of Dreams' (1917) continues the journey of its eponymous heroine, marrying pastoral elements with the exploration of human emotions and experiences. Montgomery's work is often characterized by its vivid descriptions of nature, a reflection of the author's profound connection to her rural surroundings. Throughout her career, Montgomery penned an array of novels, short stories, and poems, constructing a literary voice that resonated with both national pride and universal appeal. Her personal hardships, documented through extensive journals, were often juxtaposed with the idyllic settings and buoyant narratives she created. This contrast imbued her works with a unique depth and lasting impact, securing her legacy as an icon of Canadian literature. She was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1935, a testament to her significant influence in cultural spheres. Montgomery passed away on April 24, 1942, but her stories, notably those of Anne Shirley, continue to inspire adaptations and devotion from a diverse and enduring readership.
