Gilbert Blythe is finally a doctor, and at long last he and Anne are ready to say their vows. Soon husband and wife will be bound for a new life together in their own house of dreams, on the shores of Four Winds Harbor, near Gilbert's new medical practice in the village of Glen St. Mary. Of course, a new life brings fresh surprises and fresh problems to solve. Anne and Gilbert soon find themselves entangled in the lives of their neighbors, including the lighthouse attendant, Captain Jim, with his sad stories of the sea; Miss Cornelia Bryant, a formidable woman who always speaks her mind; Owen Ford, who longs to write the Great Canadian Novel; and the tragically beautiful Leslie Moore, to whom Anne grows closer when her own perfect life is touched by heartbreak.

I thought this book would be more about Anne and Gilbert's lives as newlyeweds than about everybody else. There is not one drop of romance.

I love this story, with Gilbert and Anne getting settled into their first little home, where they experince the birth and death of their first little daughter, and then the birth of their healthy son. Leslie Moore adds more color. All in all; great!

This is less romantic than I thought. At lest Leslie Moore gets some romance in this one. It's actually not that bad.

There is an obvious aversion to the discussion of certain subjects in this novel. Apparently Lucy Maud Montgomery feels that some things just aren’t talked about.

Things that happen that aren’t talked about, in decreasing order of how much they are talked about (MAJOR SPOILERS):

1. Weddings
2. Death of a child
3. Childbirth
4. Pregnancy
5. Sex

"'Some might say, that a Redmond B.A, whom editors were beginning to honor, is "wasted" as the wife of a struggling doctor in the rural town of Four Winds.'
'Gilbert!'
If you had married Roy Gardner, now,' continued Gilbert mercilessly, 'YOU might have been 'a leader in social and intellectual circles.'
'Gilbert BLYTHE!'
'You KNOW you were in love with him once, Anne.'
'I was not! I only thought I was. You know, Gilbert. You know I'd rather be your wife in our house of dreams than a queen in a palace.'
Gilbert's answer was in more than words..."

SIGH. Oooooooh I love it.
TYPED FROM MEMORY.
Yup- I know this by heart. Whatever. Don't mention it. So what if I'm slightly obsessed? Or, ya know, a lot obsessed? So what?

"'Oh, you mothers!' Said Gilbert, putting his arms around them. 'You mothers! God knew what He was about when He made you."
