More Tales from Anne's Hometown...Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery is best known for her "Anne of Green Gables" novels, featuring her most popular literary creation, the remarkable red-haired orphan Anne Shirley of Avonlea. Montgomery also put together two collections of short stories about the fictional village of Avonlea. The stories are set in Anne's time and some of them contain references to Anne and other "Green Gables" characters. "Further Chronicles of Avonlea" was first published in 1920 and is still in print."Further Chronicles" offers fifteen entertaining tales, in which Montgomery works the themes of romance, family, children, and the twists and turns of life with her customary skill. One of them, "The Little Brown Book of Miss Emily" is unique in that it is narrated by Anne Shirley herself, accompanied by her best friend Diane Barry.Other highlights include: "The Dream Child", in which a couple who lose their first-born get a second chance in a rather mystical way; "The Education of Betty", in which a spurned bachelor gets an unusual and unlooked-for second chance at romance; and "The Conscience Case of David Bell", in which two honorable men compete for the hand of the same woman."Further Chronicles of Avonlea" is very highly recommended to fans of Lucy Maud Montgomery and her "Anne of Green Gables" novels.5Another Visit to Avonlea...Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of the still popular "Anne of Green Gables" novels, also produced two volumes of short stories set in and around Avonlea, Anne Shirley's fictional hometown on Prince Edward Island, Canada. The stories are set in Anne's time in Avonlea; some contain references to Anne and other "Green Gables" characters. The second volume is "Further Chronicles of Avonlea", first published in 1920 and still in print.Montgomery was an immensely gifted short story writer with hundreds to her credit. "Further Chronicles' contains fifteen entertaining stories, filled with Montgomery's familiar themes of romance, family, children, and the twists and turns of human existence. One of them, "The Little Brown Book of Miss Emily" has the distinction of being narrated in the first person by Anne Shirley herself, accompanied by best friend Diane Barry.Among the highlights for this reviewer is "The Materializing of Cecil", in which a spinster's fib about a old beau takes a twist when the man himself shows up. "The Brother Who Failed" is a subtle lesson on what goes into success in life. "The Conscience Case of David Bell" concerns two honorable men competing for the same woman, who must make a difficult choice. "The Dream Child" is a slightly spooky tale of a young couple who lose their child, but get a second chance. The odd tale out in this collection is "Tannis of the Flats", an awkward love triangle set in Canadian West."Further Chronicles of Avonlea" is very highly recommended to fans of Lucy Maud Montgomery and her short stories.5EnjoyableThis is old fashioned clean fun. It reminded me of The Little House on the Prairie books. Each story was interesting and a fast read. I'm planning to read some more from Lucy Maud Montgomery, very enjoyable!4Anne's Home Town...Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of the famous "Anne of Green Gables" novels, also published two volumes of short stories set in and around Anne Shirley's fictional hometown of Avonlea, on Prince Edward Island, Canada. The stories are about romances, lost loves, parents and children, and other affairs of small town living. They include appearances by characters from the Green Gables novels."Further Chronicles of Avonlea", the second volume, offers 15 entertaining short stories, all delivered with Montgomery's superb narrative skills, sense of humor, and keen observations of human nature. "The Materializing of Cecil" is about an unmarried woman who invents a fictional romance, only to have the man of her romance make an embarrassing appearance in town. "Jane's Baby" details the hilarious struggle between two estranged sisters over a child who needs a mother. "The Dream-Child" concerns a couple who tragically lose their first born child, only to have him restored by seemingly supernatural means. "The Little Brown Book of Miss Emily" has the unique distinction of being narrated in the first person by Anne Shirley herself, accompanied by best friend Diane Barry."Further Chronicles of Avonlea" is very highly recommended to fans of Lucy Maud Montgomery, who can enjoy the short stories and the search for Green Gables references.5A short story collection that LM Montgomery didn't wantApparently, L.M. Montgomery did not want this collection of short stories to be published. Her publisher compiled a collection of stories that she rejected from inclusion into the Chronicles of Avonlea, and published this. (She sued them for this.)I think that it's interesting to read this collection in light of that. Some of the stories are the gentle, sweet ones we've come to expect from the author, while others are glaringly not. The last story has already been mentioned as being hopelessly racist and out of date. However I think that it should not be censored out of any future edition of this book (as has been suggested) because it is a reflection of its times. As a matter of fact, there are traces of Canada's racist attitudes of the time in LM Montgomery's more famous works too - even in the Anne of Green Gables series, where short but pointed bits of racism towards French Canadians appear. (In the 1985 TV mini-series, the story is given a modern update of sorts when the neighbor who offers to buy the Cuthberts' farm is a French Canadian; that would probably have been unthinkable in real turn of the last century Prince Edward Island.)While these things can jar modern sensibilities, they shouldn't be censored because they are a part of history. I suppose people who want to ban Huckleberry Finn from school curriculums might have a problem with the racism in any book, especially one for children or young adults, but how are we to learn from our past mistakes if we don't know about them?Beyond the racist last story, the other stories are perhaps of a lesser quality than the ones in Chronicles with some exceptions, but are worth reading nevertheless.4More stories about Anne of Green Gables's hometown...Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of the famous "Anne of Green Gables" novels, also published two volumes of short stories set in and around Anne Shirley's fictional hometown of Avonlea, on Prince Edward Island, Canada.

One story, "The Little Brown Book of Miss Emily", has the distinction of being told in the first person by Anne Shirley herself, and also includes Anne's best friend Diane Barry.The stories themselves are well written and entertaining. They feature familiar themes of romance, lost loves, lover's quarrels, and the challenges of parenting, all delivered with Montgomery's consumate narrative skills, and highlighted by her sense of humor and keen observations of small town life. "Aunt Cynthia's Persian Cat" is a humorous account about a cat who was bought twice. "The Education of Betty" has an older man take an interest in a younger woman, who turns the tables on him. A couple of the stories are rather edgier than usual. "In Her Selfless Mood" relates the harsh impact of a promise to a dying mother on a young woman's life. "Tannis of the Flats" is actually set in a primitive village in Alberta Province, and features a fatal misunderstanding about a romance."Further Chronicles of Avonlea" is highly recommeded to fans of Lucy Maud Montgomery, who can enjoy these short stories for their own sake, while hunting for the references to Green Gables.4More about Anne's home town...Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of the famous "Anne of Green Gables" novels, also published two volumes of short stories set in and around Anne Shirley's fictional hometown of Avonlea, on Prince Edward Island, Canada.

It is "illustrated" with blurry Persian/Middle Eastern paintings of people, Persian armies fighting, and other nonsensical illustrations that have nothing to do with the L. M. Montgomery stories in Prince Edward Island. Also, there is missing punctuation and the text is not flowing correctly. A weird page is placed frequently telling people to download the audiobook from a strange website. I believe this is a Middle Eastern fraudulent product that does not resemble any normal book. DO NOT BUY THIS !1BUYER BEWARE: User unfriendly format AND exact same text as the author's previous book: "Chronicles of Avonlea."Not only is the format cramped and user unfriendly in this version, the text in "Further Chronicles of Avonlea" is EXACTLY THE SAME as in the previous book, "Chronicles of Avonlea."This entire version of L.M. Montgomery's books is an insult to the author and to the reader. They are a rip-off and should be taken off the market.1
