ANNE'S HOUSE OF DREAMS

Annotated Edition

L.M. Montgomery

Edited and with an introduction and notes by Jen Rubio


Anne of Green Gables, newly married to doctor Gilbert Blythe, ­settles in the village by the sea of Glen St Mary, Prince Edward Island, where she befriends the enigmatic and unforgettably beautiful Leslie Moore. Glen St Mary is a fascinating community with eccentric, unpredictable characters, from the sharp-tongued Cornelia Bryant to the great humanist and storyteller, Captain Jim Boyd. Montgomery's depiction of life in this village includes haunting descriptions of the land and seascape, in which a series of human tragedies and comedies unfold. Anne's House of Dreams is perhaps the most personal of Montgomery's novels, reflecting events and experiences she recorded in her private journals. This Rock's Mills Press edition includes the following features:

  • Introduction by Jen Rubio exploring the novel in the context of the newly published edition of L.M. Montgomery's Complete Journals: The Ontario Years, 1911-1917
  • New notes, unique to this edition, explaining such terms as "the shadow of Venus," "old Scratch," and Abegweit, as well as historical references such as the failed Bank of Prince Edward Island and the Wartime Elections Act
  • Reproductions of original photographs that scholars believe are some of the locations featured in the novel.
