Book Review: Anne of Windy Poplars

Anne of Windy Poplars by L.M. Montgomery
Anne of Windy Poplars (Anne of Green Gables, #4)
by L.M. Montgomery

5 out of 5 stars

While Gilbert finishes medical school, Anne teaches at a high school on P.E.I. The snobby Pringle clan makes her life difficult, and her Pringle students all misbehave in class, until Anne finds the secret to winning them over.

I never get tired of reading these wholesome books. Even without the love interest hanging in the balance for Anne and Gilbert, this book is so full of fun and heartache both, and it never gets boring! Each character is lively and unique!
I love Rebecca Dew, Aunt Chatty, and Aunt Kate! They are such funny and sweet characters. And I absolutely adore little Elizabeth. Her story arc is so lovely and interesting.

I only wish we saw more of Gilbert. He only has one scene in the entire book.

I love how Anne tries meddling in other people’s lives, sometimes with good results where she really does help people, and sometimes ending in disaster. She is still full of that spunk and mischief that she had as a little girl, but tempered with some maturity and a little more wisdom.
