Early edition cover

Anne of Ingleside is a children's novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery. It was first published in August 1939 by George G. Harrap & Co Ltd. It is the sixth book in the series.

The novel is one of a series of books featuring the character Anne Shirley. Montgomery found her inspiration in a newspaper article about a couple who were mistakenly sent an orphan girl instead of a boy, yet decided to keep her. She also drew upon her own childhood experiences in rural Prince Edward Island, Canada. A photograph of Evelyn Nesbitt, clipped from an American magazine and pasted to the wall near the author's writing desk, was also used as a model for Anne.

Reviews

"This is the sixth book following the adventures of Anne. Ingleside is a busy and contented place, home for Anne, Gilbert, and their six children. But then Gilbert's maiden aunt comes to stay and for a while the peace is sadly strained." [1]

"Anne, now a joyful wife and mother, returns to visit the fishing village of Avonlea in this portrayal of family life on picturesque Prince Edward Island." [2]

Summary

Seven years after "Anne's House of Dreams," when Anne is visiting Avonlea with Gilbert. When she returns home to the old Morgan house, now named "Ingleside", she is greeted by her five children: James Matthew 'Jem', the eldest, now aged eight; Walter Cuthbert, who is almost seven and often thought to be a bit of a 'sissy' because of his love for poetry; Anne 'Nan' and Diana 'Di' twin girls, who are five and nothing alike, Nan having brown hair and eyes like her father and Di having red hair and green eyes; and finally Shirley, two years old and Susan Baker's favorite, as she took care of him as an infant while Anne was very sick following his birth.

The book includes the dreadful, seemingly eternal visit of Gilbert's disagreeable, oversensitive aunt Mary Maria Blythe, whose visit was only supposed to last two weeks but stretches on for months and only leaves when Anne unintentionally offends her by arranging a surprise birthday party, much to the relief of the family. It is in this book that Anne and Gilbert's youngest child is born. She is named Bertha Marilla Blythe, but is also called the roly-poly baby, or, on a daily basis 'Rilla'. "Anne of Ingleside" also includes a series of adventures which spotlight one of Anne's children at a time, and eventually Anne herself. At the end of the book, Anne worries that Gilbert doesn't love her anymore and takes her for granted, and spends a disagreeable evening with the widowed and childless Christine Stuart, who was once Anne's rival - or so she thought - for Gilbert's love. Anne begins to wonder if she has been taking Gilbert for granted. At the end she is proven wrong, as Gilbert's lack of attention was in fact caused by worry over one of his patients and he surprises her with an anniversary gift and a promise of a trip to Europe for a medical congress.
