Anne Marries: Anne’s House of Dreams & Anne of Ingleside
House of Dreams
Anne’s House of Dreams has Anne and Gilbert move from Avonlea to the Four Winds Seashore to Glen Saint Mary. He is now a doctor and Anne will be a homemaker. They befriend Ms. Cornelia Bryant and Captain Jim. They also get to know Leslie Moore and her sick husband. Anne gives birth to a daughter, Joyce, who dies. Later, Anne gives birth to a son, James Matthew. This is when we first meet Susan Baker, the housekeeper.
Anne of Ingleside
Anne has five children, including a set of twins, and is expecting another child. Her children are Jem, Walter, Nan and Di (Anne and Diana), Shirley and Rilla (Bertha Marilla). This book demonstrates Anne’s skill as a mother as well as Susan’s role as a kind of second mother as each child recounts one or two tales of their young lives. All of the children, with the exception of Shirley get their own story in this novel.
