Collection of short stories. Portrayed as happenings around Avonlea. Anne shirley occasionally pops up at places. Brings out some deep emotions. The appreciative part of the human emotions portrayed are that they are so true to real life. if you happen to get into the mind of the character you can feel the emotions.
