The impulsive, irrepressible heroine of Anne of Green Gables returns in this third book of the popular series. After two years as the local schoolmarm, Anne's ready for college. Although it's hard to venture away from Prince Edward Island, an exciting world awaits in Nova Scotia, promising the thrills of study and scholarship, adventures with friends old and new, and a dash of romance and heartbreak.
Anne's not alone on her journey; Gilbert Blythe, a childhood friend who is in love with Anne, is going to Redmond College, too. Other kindred spirits await on campus, including funny, forthright Philippa Gordon, who shares a darling cottage with Anne and two other chums, their sassy housekeeper, and a spirited stray cat. Four eventful years find Anne writing a prize-winning story, struggling to pay for her education—and perhaps meeting the man of her dreams. She also discovers the true nature of love.

But you know—I’m so amazed—I can’t realize it—and I don’t understand. There wasn’t a word in my story about—about—” Anne choked a little over the word—“baking powder.”
“Oh, I put that in,” said Diana, reassured. “It was as easy as wink—and of course my experience in our old Story Club helped me. You know the scene where Averil makes the cake? Well, I just stated that she used the Rollings Reliable in it, and that was why it turned out so well; and then, in the last paragraph, where Perceval clasps Averil in his arms and says, ‘Sweetheart, the beautiful coming years will bring us the fulfillment of our home of dreams,’ I added, ‘in which we will never use any baking powder except Rollings Reliable.’”
`The best is yet to be.'
We mustn't let next week rob us of this week's joy.
