PLOT:

Storyline via Breakthrough Entertainment: Through the influence of a spirited new teacher – Miss Stacy – Anne steps up her ability at scholarship and competes for the few spaces available at a teacher’s college in Charlottetown. Her hard work and competitive nature (especially with Gilbert) pay off.

When Anne leaves for Queen’s College, Matthew and Marilla feel a sudden emptiness in their lives. Marilla’s failing eyesight and Matthew’s poor health make life more difficult on the farm and they are forced to hire a man to help out.

In Charlottetown, Anne is nearly overwhelmed by loneliness and the harsh circumstances of her urban surroundings. More than this, she feels the pressure of severe competition – especially from Gilbert Blythe. Their estranged relationship is almost repaired at the school dance but Anne misinterprets the moment and their estrangement continues.

Matthew and Marilla make the long journey to be present when Anne graduates and wins the coveted ‘Avery Prize’. They bring Anne back to Green Gables where she reunites with Diana and discusses the difficult choice she must make: to work as a teacher or continue on to University in some far off city like Halifax or Montreal.

Shortly after her return to Avonlea, Anne is devastated by the death of her kindred spirit, Matthew. That event and Marilla’s failing eyesight make her decide to teach locally rather than move away.

Just when all seems lost Anne discovers the dark cloud over her life has a silver lining in the person of Gilbert Blythe. His direct talk heals their relationship and rekindles their romance. Anne’s good feelings about this turn of events make her believe, “God’s in His heaven and all’s right with the world.”

    1. Yes, it is such a wonderful book and movie series! It's interesting to see how each generation is introduced to it. I'll never forget being a young girl watching Megan Follows portray Anne. That was my introduction to Lucy Maud Montgomery's work, and I immediately fell in love with it.

      I've read the books, and while they are good... like most movie adaptations, they are somewhat different, but Anne is still the same spitfire, intelligent, Anne Shirley, and Gilbert is still just as swoon-worthy.

      I was most thrilled when I first learned a few years back that Ella Ballentine would be taking on this role, as well. She was actually my very first interview, for her Hallmark Christmas movie, "Baby's First Christmas." (see *HERE*.

      I'm so happy to hear how much you love Anne, too!
      Blessings, Net
