Storyline

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 Kathy Li

User Reviews

A great sequel
16 February 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say that this is one sequel that is just as terrific, if not more so, than the original! Megan Follows, Colleen Dewhurst and Jonathan Crombie are excellent again as Anne, Marilla, and Gilbert. The entire supporting cast is wonderful as well. The story is so romantic, exciting, and absorbing, and the scenery and costumes are breathtaking. There are plenty of laughs in this movie too. Every girl should see the "Anne" movies. I can't wait for the next one!
