Anne Shirley, now a schoolteacher, has begun writing stories and collecting rejection slips. She makes the acquaintance of a handsome, rich, bachelor, (jumping to a wrong conclusion, she and Diana chased down Rachel Lynde's cow, thinking it was Dolly) & immediately sold it to John Blythe. [When she realizes her fault, Anne & Marilla do a special visit to Rachel Lynde & her longtime husband, Thomas. During this visit, Thomas Lynde dies & Rachel Lynde became a widow!] and wins (to her chagrin) Rolling's Reliable baking soda (that was forged by Diana) company's writing contest. She acts as Diana's maid of honor, and refuses Gilbert Blythe's marriage proposal; which sends her to teach Kingsport Ladies' College, an exclusive all girl students' school, where she meets opposition from the principal, Miss Katherine Brooke, and the Pringle clan (one of whom is the rich, handsome bachelor). But while Anne won the numerous conflicts & battles, and the friends she makes, she returns to Avonlea. Written by

During the class after Anne, Emiline and Essie break into the shed, Anne walks into the room and we see a rude drawing of her on the board. As the shots of the giggling class are shown you can see that Jen Pringle is at her usual desk. However, minutes later, we see that her desk is empty as she walks into the classroom apparently late for class, on purpose. See more »
[Anne has just invited Miss Brooke to Green Gables for the summer]
Now you can go through the motions of telling me how delighted you are and how I'll have a wonderful time.
I AM delighted... but as to a wonderful time... that will depend entirely on YOU, Katherine.

This movie is superb: funny, romantic, adventurous and beautiful! It doesn't hold true to the books as much as the first movie (not very much, in fact), but it is still very enjoyable and delightful to watch!
Anne of Avonlea has a very touching ending as well.
