Anne of Ingleside

Anne of Ingleside, Bantam Classic book cover

Anne of Ingleside (1939) is book 6 in the Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery. The plot of this novel falls between Anne’s House of Dreams (1917) and Rainbow Valley (1919), both of which were published 20 years earlier. This novel was the last that L.M. Montgomery published during her lifetime.

After leaving their "House of Dreams," Anne and Gilbert moved to a home they call "Ingleside." As the story begins, Anne Shirley Blythe is the mother of five children: James Matthew ("Jem"), Walter, twins Anne ("Nan") and Diana ("Di"), and Shirley Blythe. During this story, Anne gives birth to her youngest daughter Bertha Marilla, known as "Rilla." The focus of the novel shifts in part to Anne's children's adventures, but Anne still plays a role. The family must cope with a visit from Gilbert's unpleasant aunt. Later in the novel, Anne begins to worry that Gilbert has become distant and no longer loves her.
