Elizabeth reprises her role as Marilla Cuthbert in L.M. Montgomery’s classic Anne of Avonlea, produced as a full-cast dramatic reading with The Online Stage. The first installment, Anne of Green Gables, is also available at Audible, and has received multiple five-star reviews.
Following Anne of Green Gables (1908), this book was written by Lucy Maud Montgomery in 1909. Sixteen-year-old Anne is about to start her first term teaching at the Avonlea school.
The book soon introduces Anne’s new and problematic neighbor, Mr. Harrison, and his foul-mouthed parrot, as well as the twins, Davy and Dora. Other characters introduced are some of Anne’s new pupils and Miss Lavendar Lewis, a sweet but lonely lady. This book sees Anne maturing slightly, even though she still cannot avoid getting into a number of her familiar scrapes, as only Anne can – some of which include selling her neighbor’s cow (having mistaken it for her own), or getting stuck in a broken duck house roof while peeping into a pantry window.
