Further Chronicles of Avonlea is a short story collection and companion volume to the Anne of Green Gables series. It was first published in 1920.


There is no dedication, because this book was initially published without the author's consent.


Nestled in the seaside hills of Prince Edward Island, there's a road to a place called Green Gables, where a girl named Anne grew up. Here, not far from the cold Atlantic Ocean and close to the warmth of a loving heart, is Avonlea.

In this second volume of wonderful adventures, a ghostly appearance in a garden teaches us about the real meaning of love... a young girl risks losing her dear mother to find the father she never knew... and a foolish lie threatens to make a spinster the town's laughing-stock when an imaginary lover comes to town for real! Warm and exciting, these delightful tales are stories to cherish, in a book you'll never want to end. (from the 1998 Bantam Books reissue)

Behind the scenesEdit


  • The book was published without the permission of L. M. Montgomery, and was formed from stories she had decided not to publish in the earlier Chronicles of Avonlea. Montgomery sued her publishers, L.C. Page & Co, and won $18,000 in damages after a legal battle lasting nearly nine years.
