Summary of Anne of Ingleside
Anne of Ingleside gives us a glimpse into the life of the Blythe family. We see Anne of Green Gables, all grown up and with eventually six children. The children of Ingleside are as imaginative as their mother, and the story tells of their dreams and trials alike. L. M. Montgomery gives each child of Ingleside their own unique personality, which brings the story to life.
Anne and Gilbert are loving parents, but when Gilbert’s aunt Mary Maria shows up to stay with the family, their life is turned upside down. Aunt Mary Maria objects to almost all aspects of the Blythe family’s lifestyle. She dislikes noise, can’t stand the food, and objects to Anne and Gilbert’s parenting methods. What will Anne do?
My thoughts on Anne of Ingleside
This book is sweet, lighthearted, and entertaining. I loved the perspective of the Ingleside children, the goings-on of the town, and the peek into Anne’s life as a mother. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a fun, family story.
