Eighteen-year-old Anne has left Green Gables for university in nearby Nova Scotia, where she will finally fulfill her dream of earning a degree. She sets up home in a cozy cottage in bustling Kingsport with Avonlea's Priscilla Grant and a new friend, the beautiful Philippa Gordon. But it's not all fun and games. Anne's childhood friend, Ruby Gillis, dies of tuberculosis back in Avonlea, shattering Anne's carefree attitude to life, and Gilbert finally declares his feelings and proposes. But Anne still has a naive, overly romantic view of love and rejects him, driving a wedge between them. A two-year relationship with a fellow Redmond College student, Roy Gardner, follows, but when he also proposes, Anne realizes that he's not the one for her after all. When she returns to Avonlea and learns that Gilbert is deathly ill with typhoid, she is distraught. Will she recognize the depth of her feelings at last? Or is it already too late for Anne and her one true love?

This has to be my favorite by far. I love the growing morals that Anne learns. She is told that humans aren't perfect, which contributes to her seeing how they are flawed and how she really loves Gilbert. Gilbert...*sigh* Gosh, I am so glad he was there. We get more of him and sometimes less but I loved him. I would recommend this book!

The third book in the Anne series. A fantastic read that takes us through Anne's college years and romantic experiences. A great book that has amazing themes and lessons about the subject of love and friendship. The writing speeds through some pivotal moments, and drags through some of the unnecessary things, much like real life love, now that I think about it. A must-read for fans of Anne of Green Gables!

"I have a dream. I persist on dreaming it, even though at times it seems as if it will never come true. I dream of a house, with a hearth-fire in it, cats, and dogs, and footsteps of friends... and you!" -Gilbert Blythe

"Laugh at your mistakes but learn from them, joke over your troubles but gather strength from them, make a jest of your difficulties but overcome them."
