Rainbow Valley // Book Review

Rainbow Valley:
L.M. Montgomery

Anne Shirley is grown up, has married her beloved Gilbert, and is the mother of six mischievous children. These boys and girls discover a special place all on their own, but they will never dream of what will happen when a strange family moves into an old mansion nearby. The Meredith clan is two boys and two girls-and a runaway named Mary Vance. Soon the Meredith's join Anne's children in their private hideout, intent on carrying out their plans to save Mary from the orphanage, to help the lonely minister find happiness, and keep a pet rooster from the soup pot. there's always and adventure brewing in the sun-dappled world of Rainbow Valley.

This book was adorable and pleasant. I was constantly chuckling over some new antic of one child or another, or sympathizing with someone. Miss Montgomery is a potent writer, and has mastered the art of storytelling. She drew her readers in with tales of Anne Shirley, and it is so fun to read about her life as she gets older and has children and learns to help them through life. Rainbow Valley would be a lot of fun to read aloud to children. :)
