My guess is that Jane Carley has passed on. Were she still alive she surely would not have sold this book!
I showed it to Marlene and she told me to go ahead and buy it. She figured that if another woman enjoyed the book that much, there is a good chance she would like it too.
So I paid a dollar for it. I probably could have offered the person fifty cents and got it for that, but I didn't bother. Here is the title of the book…
You are probably aware of the book, Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maude Montgomery. Anne of Ingleside is one of at least six sequels to Anne of Green Gables.
I grew up with a copy of Anne of Green Gables in my family's bookshelf. It was my mothers. She read it as a young girl and kept it. I remember her telling me she really liked the book. So I endeavored to read it, but I didn't get far. I think it's a story more geared for the opposite sex.
Nevertheless, I can tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Anne of Green Gables series made by Sullivan Entertainment.
I have a feeling that most of you who read this are already aware of the Road to Avonlea series. But if not, check it out. You're in for a pleasant surprise.
