Anne of Avonlea

ByL.M. Montgomery

Anne of Avonlea is a novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery. It was first published in 1909. Anne is about to start her first term teaching at the Avonlea school, although she will still continue her studies at home with Gilbert, who is teaching at the nearby White Sands School. The book soon introduces Anne's new and problematic neighbor, Mr. Harrison, and his foul-mouthed parrot, as well as the twins, Davy and Dora. They are the children of Marilla's third cousin and she takes them in when their mother dies while their uncle is out of the country. Dora is a nice, well-behaved girl, while Davy is much more of a handful and gets into many scrapes. They are initially meant to stay only a short time, but the twins' uncle postpones his return to collect the twins and then eventually dies, and Marilla is relieved to know the twins will remain with her.
