I loved this sequel which follows Anne into adulthood and continues to explore her relationship with Gilbert Blythe. Kim Braden played Anne just as I imagined her when I read the Anne stories , and she was ably supported by a superb cast who all equally well portrayed the characters and brought them to life in a memorable and sympathetic way. I feel that Joan Crafts' direction must have helped to extract such supreme performances from the actors and actresses. I would love to obtain a copy of this mini -series either on video or DVD as I have tried in vain to acquire this version which in my opinion is the best that I have seen, all other Annes pale in comparison to Ms Braden. I hope that someone will be able to help me in my search.
