(4.4 stars; 45 reviews)

Anne Shirley is grown up and married, and her six children are off having their own adventures with the Merediths - the four children of a widowed, absent-minded minister. Whether they're hiding a runaway home girl and plotting to save her from the orphanage or organizing a day of fasting to punish themselves for singing an awful song in the graveyard, their adventures and misadventures make this seventh Anne novel a different, but still delightful, story.

Enters the next generation

(3 stars)

Hard to move away from Anne. more about other kids then her own. voice of Gilbert too different after 3 reads. Anxious to see what's next.

Some voices...eh

(4 stars)

Una voice I didn't care for much it seemed too slow. Loved Walters voice and Nick

a lil fun a lil funny

(4 stars)

(5 stars)

A lovely rendition with a diverse cast of readers. I especially liked the voices of Susan, Cornelia, Norman, the minister, Mary Vance, Faith Rosemaryand Ellen. I found the reading of Una slow and too deliberate. it didn't fit in with the rest. Overall a very pleasant dramatic reading. Thank you to all who worked hard on this.

Awesome but the voice of Una was creepy, and the voice of gilbet

(3.5 stars)

Loved story readers great one was a bit fast thoroughly enjoyed
