There's never a dull moment for busy, bustling Anne, who's now the mother of five children and has a sixth one on the way. With her visiting aunt, the insufferable Mary Maria, also in the mix--and soon wearing out her welcome--Anne's life is a constant whirl. But despite the endless demands on her time, Anne can't think of any place she'd rather be than her beloved Ingleside. At least not until the day she begins to imagine that her cherished Gilbert doesn't love her anymore. Could it possibly be true? She's a little older, maybe, but in her heart she knows she's still the same fiery redhead who came to Green Gables all those years ago. She hasn't changed, but has he? Never one to go down without a fight, the irrepressible, indomitable Anne sets out to make her husband fall in love with her all over again.

"Anne of Ingleside is the sixth book in the Anne of Green Gables series, written by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Instead of the murmuring enchantment and mystery of the harbor and the seashore, Ingleside of Glen St. Mary is a large house, full of vivid chatter, fresh young minds, the largest rainbowy imaginations from the smallest children.
Surrounded by trees, valleys, animals, comrades, the Ingleside children grow up surrounded by dreams with their mother Anne and father Gilbert to guide them. The little adventures of each unique and lovable child—Jem, Walter, Nan, Di, Shirley, and Rilla, touches upon their yet undeveloped personalities, their childish beliefs and expectations of the world. Humor follows each urchin’s heartbreak or triumph; yet, always, there’s something sweet enough to bring tears in each little episode of Ingleside.
This novel, admittedly, takes place decades after Anne of Green Gables and many years after Anne’s House of Dreams; changes should be expected for the plot and characters. Yet, through both Anne and her children, Montgomery’s spirit and passion for dreams and imagination still lies fiery and young through the storyline.
“…The primeval fire of earth at their hearts.” @StarRead of the Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board

The title of this book should really be The Children And Housekeeper Of Ingleside. I have the same problem with the Anne books as I do with Margaret Atwood’s books: it seems I started with the best novel and they just get worse from there. They’re all enjoyable enough, but the Anne of Ingleside is nothing like the Anne of Green Gables: she barely says a single word in the entire book!
