Über das eBook

Anne Shirley has now been married to Gilbert Blythe for 15 years, and the couple have six children. After a trip to London, Anne returns to the news that a new minister has arrived in Glen St. Mary. John Meredith is a widower with four young children. The children have not been properly brought up since the death of their mother, with only their father to parent them. The children are considered wild and mischievous by many of the families in the village, causing them to question Mr. Meredith's parenting skills and his suitability as a minister.

Über den Autor

Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874–1942), a Canadian author of exceptional renown, is best recognized for her beloved Anne of Green Gables series. Educated at Prince of Wales College and Dalhousie University, Montgomery's literary career took flight with her first published novel, 'Anne of Green Gables' (1908), which spawned a series of sequels featuring the spirited protagonist Anne Shirley. Montgomery continued to explore themes of love, friendship, and nature in her writing, elements that are richly woven into 'Rainbow Valley' (1919), the seventh book in the Anne series, focusing on Anne's children and their adventures. Her works, characterized by their narrative vivacity and nuanced depictions of life in Prince Edward Island, have captivated readers worldwide, earning her a place in Canada's literary pantheon. Montgomery's influence extends beyond literature; she is recognized for her role in shaping the identity of Canadian culture through her evocative storytelling and her ability to create compelling, endearing characters. Her literary style, often infused with a sense of romanticism and a deep appreciation for the natural world, reflects Montgomery's own battle with depression and the solace she found in her writing. Her contributions to children's literature and Canadiana remain enduring, celebrated through multiple adaptations and continued scholarly interest.
